Finally, a Bearded Iris from our garden, a few years ago. A reminder that after winter, these will flower in their beautiful colours again.

Quotation of the day, from Rudyard Kipling

“Flowers are not made by singing “ Oh , how beautiful

and sitting in the shade”

Carol, we had snow here in August 2011, before that was decades ago, I'll post a photo.The snow down south has melted, and severe frosts a little North of us. about -1 Celsius this morning here. The fire is going!!! Enjoy your spring days.Theresa, there are so many beautiful views there, and Michaele, ditto for me.Brit, our snow is nowhere as much as you have or for as long, but I still think it is like fairyland when it falls. Cheers from Jean.
