All about Flags.............
In my last blogposts, I took you out in the wilderness with me,
which included some beaver ponds full of wild flag iris....
We saw so many, that today...
I decided that I had to do an entire blogpost devoted just to them.
I love that they grow in so many unexpected places..
like here...amongst old dead wood:
Or hidden in tall grass:
Or in clumps along pond's full of lily pads edges:
Heads open and turned toward the sun:
Or in groups, like a family on a picnic outing:
Or, two lovers, hiding in an intimate secret spot by themselves:
Or bravely, vulnerably living on the water's edge:
A full bloom and a promise of a bloom, side by side:
They were everywhere...purple beauties!:
that I have to do just one more blogpost to share more with you next time!
- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
