This is my favorite shot so far this season.  My peach colored Iris are next to bloom so stay tuned.  I've put together a board at Pinterest if you want more.

Spring and the Last Big Push.

I am on the second draft of my WWII book even if the flowers in my garden are calling my name.  I really do want to go out and dig in the dirt, but this draft is to smooth things and sharpened those scenes.  But I run about on my breaks and take pictures.  Enjoy.

Spring is here in all it's glory.  I love going out each day and seeing what has bloomed this morning.  With Iris, you have to 'dead-head' them to make your stalks look sharp.  Some of my Gladiolus are pushing through the soil, but I have more I want to plant.  I find gardening relaxing and all I'm responsible for is planting them.

The Hope of Spring

These are pictures of my Iris ready to bloom.  See the buds, the yellow and purple edge Iris. Those buds hold the hope of beauty.  Soon I will see a beautiful flower.

For me writing is that way.  You come up with a proposal, that bud you send to your editor and then when you write the book, it becomes that beautiful flower.  I am working on the WWII book, and wanting that flower to bloom.  There are other stems on my bush that are beginning to bud.  I’ll be excited to see those stories bloom, too.

Please check back daily this Spring, 
because I will post pictures of the latest blooms.
