Just Another Day in Paradise

This week’s theme/prompt is: HEADS – Flower. For more participants in Heads or Tails click HERE.

Before we moved to the property last year I had two or three potted plants that I had managed to keep alive for a few years. They were usually in various shades of yellowing from lack of care. When we moved to such a large property, already overwhelmingly landscaped with beautiful plants, I became a fanatic. I planted and planted. When we moved, one of the hardest things was moving and finding a place for all my pots of plants.

While cleaning out some storage stuff, I found a bag with bulbs in it that had sat too long and began to sprout. I had two ledge boxes that I used for herbs last year so I stuck them in there. They looked pathetic and I wasn’t sure they would survive. So you can imagine my joy Saturday when I awoke and found this single bloom. I think it is an Iris (?). The other five plants don’t have anything that looks like a bud yet, but this one plant has four more. The flower only lasted one day so thank heavens I had my camera (ha, ha when don’t I have my camera?).
