Hiatus?!!

Wowza. I’m sad to acknowledge that I haven’t posted here on sheila365.com for THREE MONTHS. I’ve had this photoblog for over 12 years now, and this is by far my longest period of radio silence. I can only blame an extended creative funk that I’ve been in.

Ok. With that said, I won’t linger on a long-ish, nostalgic post, I’ll just leave a few views from my day that make me happy.

Antelope-horn milkweed that’s come back over the last 4 to 5 years.

I love the red from this Cedar Sage, another perennial in it’s 3rd or 4th year.
Monte’s poppies are popping!
The first blooms from these irises that I planted a few years back… a gift from a neighbor who moved away.

I’m baaaack. 🙂

A neighbor’s gift.

Our neighbors of many years recently sold their home and moved away.  They had cultivated irises and planted them in their yard. Over the years, whenever they separated their bulbs each season, they’d hand me several over the fence.  I planted them in different places in our yard, and some have reliably bloomed each year. 

These are some of the first bulbs given to me, purple irises, that are already in bloom this year. I’m hoping to see some of the others do the same.
