“Easter Blooms”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter. We had a pleasant day, but last night, thunderstorms came through that kept us awake for hours. Luckily, there was no damage, and we did need the rain. The Easter bunny didn’t leave any eggs or chocolate here, but that is okay (can’t use the extra calories anyway), and I’ll take new flowers anyway.
The Walking Iris started blooming Sunday. Usually, I am at work when they bloom, and since the flowers only last a day, I don’t get to see the big show. But, early Sunday morning, I noticed about thirty swelling buds and knew that today there would be a display I wouldn’t miss. I love the buds of these flowers almost as much as the flowers themselves. When they are numerous, they remind me of Red Square and the onion dome church.
By nine o’clock, the flowers were already opened and the colors were very appropriate for Easter Sunday.
You have to agree that this was a lovely Easter present from Mother Nature.
