So far all the iris blooms I've had have been orange. Lovely, but I knew there were some purple ones in there somewhere. Earlier this week I spotted this guy just ready to pop out.
And here is what it looked like yesterday.
Isn't it pretty? If you look really, really close you can see another little purple baby just about ready to open.
Thank you so much for the comments and emails about my front porch. It took a really long time to get it and I am very proud of it. I know I have a couple of pictures of this house when we bought it (1985) I'm going to try to find them and post them soon. It really doesn't even look like the same house.
I'm still trying to catch up on blog reading. I've been behind since the first weekend we went out of town. I finally got my post feeds down to less than 100. Okay, it is at 99 but we aren't splitting hairs here. I haven't commented on many because I am trying to get through all of them today so I can be fresh for tomorrow!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I'm hoping our weather stays like it is now - so far it has been a perfect day. Sun is out, windows are open. Perfect.
