STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
Before you look and say "Another flower photo" (which is what my Mom says every time I post something from the garden) I have to tell you this is an iris named Stairway to Heaven that I put in two years ago. It didn't bloom last year. I was disappointed. As I planted yesterday, I thought about the many things I have planted that don't flower or never come back. This morning I awakened stiff and wondered just how much I could do today. I came down for coffee and walked out into my enclosed porch and saw this iris in full bloom. I took it as a sign to keep on going. So I put on the gardening crocs and headed out with renewed ambition.
