Two Years in the Making
Every fall I have added new bulbs to the existing ones slumbering in the flowerbeds around my house. I often forget where and what I have buried. For the past year, there have been prominent green leaves next to the front steps. I could not remember what kind of flower they were, but given the size of the leaves, I had great expectations.
A few weeks ago, giant iris blooms appeared out of nowhere that were so heavy that the stalks tipped over to the ground. I guess it takes two years to make an iris, but I think that they are worth the wait.
