  1. Done with the same exquisite beauty as your bird photographs. What am I saying! The same quality you present everything. It’s not the eye that’s so attractive, it’s the heart of seeing. These iris plants were a favorite of my mother while I was a child. Every year those amazing blooms. Thank you Cindy. I almost forgot, but then…

  2. Oh oh, WP being naughty. Being creative about posing as a barrier to me. Poo.

    Exquisite beautiful images, like your birds, like your everything. And it more than the beauty of things, it’s the beauty of the way you see. I know it is. As a child, I near forgot but now you remind me, the iris flowers were a favorite of my mother, putting them in large beds in our backyard. Thanks Cindy.

    1. WP has some wicked goblins who never tire and never rest. Your mother’s garden must have been stunning. Thank you so much for your kindness Neil. You are so sincerely appreciated დ

  3. How beautiful is this.

    Such a wonderful creation . All flowers are awesome in that they are all divinely ✨️ created with such magnificence and grace.

    Each unique and perfectly formed.
    Thank you Cindy for sharing πŸ’– x

      1. I did bloom Tulips in the fall once a long time ago after keeping the bulbs in the fridge all summer ❗️ 𝕀π•₯’𝕀 π•Ÿπ• π•₯ π•Ÿπ•šπ•”π•– π•₯𝕠 𝕗𝕠𝕠𝕝 π•¨π•šπ•₯𝕙 𝕄𝕠π•₯𝕙𝕖𝕣 ℕ𝕒π•₯𝕦𝕣𝕖 ⚑️

  4. Hi Cindy, I have the exact same Iris coming in bloom in my back yard at the moment. Now that takes courage because it might snow later today.

  5. Beautiful shots a a fab flower, Cindy. The Iris is an elegant beauty.
    I was a late bloomer, so I get it. I’m hoping that will lead to being a late fader.

  6. Maybe it’s wise to wait and bloom later. That’s when everybody else has already faded, so your beauty can shine all the more! Well done, Cindy (and Happy Thanksgiving!)

    Literally, a six whole months late out this way. Have a great Thanksgiving Day! πŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒ

    O/T: WP is still messing around – Got locked out twice, they’ve messed with the follower list so don’t know who’s receiving a new post noticed. If they’re trying to improve upon their platform, they’re not doing a good job.

    1. I hear you. So sorry you are experiencing this. It is always something with the WP gremlins. They stopped notifying me about likes. They did find the problem, but followers still disappear, which is a problem that won’t get fixed. It helps reduce space utilization. Happy & Peaceful Thanksgiving Deborah დ

  8. I love it when a new flower opens. This is the wrong time of year for that to happen here, but it’s a treat to see it on your post, Cindy. I did click to enlarge the photos and they are really stunning.

  9. Cindy, thank you for granting us the opportunity to observe a flower with great depth. You reminded me of Georgia O’Keeffe’s quotes: β€œNobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” Thank you for your friendship!!!

    It’s so beautiful against the black background! A good lesson that it’s never too late to try new things or keep at things we love!

  11. Late indeed.
    As an aside. We have followed your instructions for colibris. It works.
    But right now, there are very few birds. It is a bit “chilly” (for us) here right now. Maybe the birds have gone down the mountain a bit.
    As for Oreoles… No dice. We’re gonna change the seeds. See what happens…
    Hope all is well?

    1. Great news on the colobris! They do often leave when it gets cold, but we have some that stay year round despite it getting below freezing at night. Orioles like grape jelly and nectar, not seeds. They are nectar feeders like colibris, but they can’t drink from the hummingbird feeders. If you put grapejelly out in a hanging bowl when they are in your area, you will get a bunch. Good luck! დ
