Yesterday our iris, Night Ruler, bloomed for the first time. The day before I took my sister shopping and helped a little with her set up for a garden tour later in the day. While she checked the iris and other things in her garden I took a number of photos. So you'll be seeing more iris soon. It was really too bad that the rains came right at the start so almost no one came. Rats! Our weather is so wet it is getting crazy.
Still, we are so happy with our own iris! I used the May recipe challenge at MScraps to get me away from the rut I seem to have settled into this month. The recipe begins with two papers NOT in neutral colors, so that was good. Now, Helen, here it is in the very first bloom.
