Earth To Iris

It smelled like rain, it even looked a bit like rain, but there was little if any rain.

The first iris has bloomed. The weather we've been having seems conducive to a really long bloom. I've seen forsythias still in bloom and the pink-flowered tree across the street has been flowering way longer than I am used to seeing.

Eastern Redbud, Cercis canadensis


  1. Looks like a redbud from the photo. Zigzag on the branches. Flowers right at stem. They are blooming now. We need some raindancing.

    1. Oh yes, I see the spade leaves. It's form can be funky young. So eastern redbud it is. The carpenter bees love it. Love it.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
