My Iris bulbs are up and the purple ones are in bloom. I have some bulbs that grow to 3-4′ in height and blooms are huge in size and stunning in color, but the common ones are all deep royal purple and fairly short (1′-2′ high).
The California Poppies are sporting huge blooms this year, no doubt because of the good rains they’ve had this winter.
Seeing the Iris’ in bloom is one of the things I love about returning home to Tehachapi in the Spring. And, the lilac bushes are in bloom all over town. Beautiful!
Be safe, be well, and be happy. If you can’t be happy, try to be content with the knowledge that the balance beam of life will always return to an even level. Remember to tell those you love that you love them.
