Imagine our surprise to find this vibrant miniature Iris reticulata blooming in the garden this afternoon.
We’ve had a sunny day today. Once the wind died down, the temperature crept over 50F. And so late this afternoon the warm February sun coaxed this bud to open. What a joy to find it as I cleaned up from planting the carrots!
“Isn’t that the only way to curate a life?
To live among things that make you gasp with delight?”

“Being here to witness the beauty,
to learn, to be astonished, to love –
is enough. Being able to create
is a delightful honour.”
