Bearded Iris, Bubbles and Knitting

27 May

1   We bought some beautiful Bearded Irises the other day. This one, Black Swan, is absolutely stunning with sunlight and morning dew still on it.

2    This afternoon next door’s children were blowing bubbles  which drifted across into our garden, gorgeous against the cerulean sky.

3   After working for hours in the garden, I took some time out, knitting my last piece for Wool Against Weapons. This will be my 8th and now I need to start knitting a ballerina wrap for Grand-baby T who has recently started lessons.

    That iris is gorgeous – the extravagant petals and the rich colour. There are so many beautiful irises open at the moment – May is a lovely month.

      Yes, it is, such richness of colour. It’s June as I am replying and the Poppies have joined the irises for a splendid blaze of colour. Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment. 🙂
