Iris Bloom

June 1 & the iris has bloomed!  The first time in three summers.  I am overjoyed. It’s a pale white one with a yellow center. It could be English Cottage crossed with Copyright, or Angelic Wings. It might even be Brother Carl. Nordica is also a possibility. definitely not Beverly in White, who is a cotillion debutante with frills. I expected violet of course.

Did it bloom overnight? What a surprise this morning to see it fully, unless it lowers its arms tomorrow.

I finished the manuscript. It made me very happy, and then a bit restless–the post-writing blues? Then the iris bloomed.
