Over-exited iris

 While digging things out of the driveway island, I spied a fallen flower stalk from the Siberian iris. My immediate reaction was to curse the deer under my breath and wonder when that fence is finally going up. But I decided to walk over for a closer look.

Looking closer, it appears this particular flower burst apart. I guess it was a little, um...premature...

Don't you just hate when that happens? Actually that looks downright terrifying.

Gardeners aren't the only ones excited for spring. The plants can hardly contain themselves. 

Speaking of the fence, I came home today to find white paint marking the line for the new fence. We're getting closer!


  1. Spring excitement, wow! Hooray for progress on the fence project!

    1. I had a nightmare last night where the deer were casually jumping over the fence, practically floating. I hope it doesn't come true.

    1. Yes it is! I'm struggling to hold myself back until the fence goes up.
