simply Iris

It is unseasonably cold.

it has rained for 2 days.


Last week I wondered why my mood had dipped.

Winter dragging into summer was becoming tiresome.


Looking out of my kitchen window: there she was.

I simply had to capture her strength, her resilience, her beauty.

  1. …you most likely see yourSelf looking at this flower. πŸ™‚ she is a mirror of who you are…to be

  2. Not unseasonably cold enough to kill off the flu germs though…unfortunately.

  3. Rain and wind and dreary weather can really take its toll on us.
    We have some beautiful flowering bushes that were beaten down by the wind and rain. Drooped and flattened. Then the sun came out and within a day or two they had perked back up with new blossoms and were more lovely than ever.
    Your iris is gorgeous. There surely is a lesson to learn from nature…..if only to enjoy it.

  4. Resonance felt. Beautiful x

    It’s hard for me to imagine winter lingering down in London while we are bathed in 21 degrees of sunshine way up here in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland…what strange weather we’re having this year!

  13. Nothing like some beauty in the morning to go with your coffee. πŸ™‚
