Being “stuck” at home is never a bad thing for me if it’s spring.
My garden is erupting in colour.
So many colours.
Some of the colour is subtle.
Some of the colour is bold.
The irises always like to show off.
They are, for sure, some of the showiest flowers to be had.
They are, perhaps, some of the sexiest of flowers.
And they have all the bells and whistles that the flower world can provide.
But even the simple potentilla can put on a show.
There might not be a flower more simple and lovely as a tulip, though. Even without all the fancy business that the irises boast, the tulip stands tall and strong, withstanding snow and frost and being our bridge between the cold grey days of March and the welcome sun of June.
