So, look – the other potted irises are more of the lovely Charleston. Yay! They are such pretty flowers. It will be quite fun to give them a spot to call their own out in the yard. Meanwhile, it’s a treat to look out on the deck in the morning and see them blooming there.
Except for a little lingering congestion, the cold of this past week has all but left me, which is nice. The weather – which was cold and dreary and miserable before and while I was sick – has taken a turn for the fabulous, as well. It was great to have this morning to sit out in the sun on the deck, puttering at assorted tasks (watering, pruning, tightening up the string trellaces, etc.) whilst enjoying coffee and our public radio’s Sunday morning line-up.
Here’s what the deck garden looks like from down below:
When all that was done, t’was nice to spread out a blanket and spend just an hour basking in the sun, charging up my solar cells and relaxing. It didn’t last long, and the garden downstairs presented a different project to wear away some of the afternoon, but that’s a blog post of a different color (this one’s a bit purple, eh?).
Meanwhile: oh, what a beautiful morning.
