This - and every blue iris ....

This - and every blue iris ...., originally uploaded by Sparky2*.

I have so, so much to be thankful for ... spring and the blue iris are definitely on my list.

Best to View Large On Black

by Mary Oliver

It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate, this isn't
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.


  1. Lovely series of posts, from new baby, to wonderful Zach being such a nice boy, to the blue iris, to Mary Oliver.

    What a feast of all kinds. thank you! for noticing and loving all these different life forms then bringing them to us.

  2. Your pictures are very good. Loving the ducks.
