In a few months the flower beds will be brimming with TALL BEARDED IRIS, along with the various spring companion plants to compliment their form and color.  Bloom times vary on the year--sometimes up to 2 weeks early and up to 2 weeks late.  Time will tell this year when the bloom will be.  I welcome the spring rains and cool to moderate climate instead of freezing temperatures!

Passion is defined as the love of, or the object(s) of affection and emotion. I am passionate about family, friends, flowers, food, photography and fabulous music! This blog is dedicated to those loves.
