Pretty Purple Surprise

When I walked outside this morning I found this blooming beside the house:


What a sweet surprise!

  8. Our Irises are up too, but they are either plain white, blue, or a strange mix of purple and yellow. I'd love to have some like yours; much nicer.

    1. Probably not. It's the north side of the house and there's not enough sun to really encourage blooming. This one probably bloomed because a tree in front of that part of the walk split and had to be removed last summer, letting in more light. Plus, we just rent. We probably won't be here much longer.

  12. I like surprises like this Jennifer. Especially when things have not been so good. A flower appearing overnight means a lot.
