“A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful,
full or wonder and excitement.
It is our misfortune that for most of us
that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct
for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring,
is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood.
If I had influence with the good fairy
who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children,
I should ask that her gift to each child in the world
be a sense of wonder so indestructible
that it would last throughout life,
as an unfailing antidote
against the boredom and disenchantment of later year…
the alienation from the sources of our strength.”
“It is a wholesome and necessary thing
for us to turn again to the earth
and in the contemplation of her beauties
to know the sense of wonder and humility. ”

Blossom XXXIII: October Blues
Lovely blue Iris, I only have the yellow one.
Thank you, Arlene. Check out brentandbeckysbulbs.com for lots of choices! They are such a welcome sight each spring. We enjoy them, but have no yellow ones 😉
Thanks for the link 🙂
You are welcome😊
Ahhh….a breath of spring😊
It never ceases to amaze me that plants bloom there in Virginia before they do here further south in Georgia. Beautiful iris!
