And then. . .

Last year, the javelinas dug up all our straight from Holland tulip bulbs just as the leaves were poking up out of the ground. We heard that they don’t like irises and will leave them alone, so in the fall we planted a few iris bulbs.  A while ago, we noticed the leaves growing- and finally a few buds appeared last week.  We’ve been seeing profuse iris blooms all around town- just not in our garden.

I photographed an event at the college on Friday for an organization I belong too- and their irises were magnificent.

Yesterday (Earth Day), we still just had 2 buds.

And then, I woke up to an (almost) open flower this morning. I couldn’t wait for it to fully unfurl, so here it is, edited with a painterly effect from Topaz Impression.

Spring is finally here!
