- I love daffodils!
- I love iris.
My Granny and my Mother grew the most beautiful bearded iris.
All different colors. They were amazing.
I have not been able to grow bearded iris here, although I do know folks who do.
Perhaps I'll try again.
But, I did try growing Louisiana Iris and have my first blooms.
- The Louisiana Iris is a native American iris.
This is Black Gamecock.
I planted the rhizomes 2 years ago and this is the first year they have bloomed.
Dark and dramatic, it's really hard not to touch the velvety looking petals.
- I've been walking into the village early in the morning to have breakfast.
The earlier the better as the heat and humidity are arriving.
- Time to have the AC serviced.
- Do you like urban fantasy or magical realism?
If so, I've found a new author for you ... at least he was new for me.
I started with The Hum and The Shiver and recently completed Wisp of a Thing.
The Hum and The Shiver was named one of the Best Fiction Books of 2011 by Kirkus Reviews.
Set in the mountains of Tennesse. Who are the Tufa? Lots of music and myth.
You'll ask yourself if you feel the hum or the shiver!
Wishing YOU well and much joy!
A big THANK YOU to Nancy for hosting Random 5 Friday.
