Another Day, Another Iris

We live in a small house with a small yard. That doesn’t stop us from have a lot of variety in our garden though. As a photographer I look at the garden and determine which flower is ready for their closeup. Today it was one of our Dutch Iris perennials

Moment of Hope #14—Sunrise

We are living in some scary times right now. I am old and have lived through others but this one is somehow different and maybe more frightening. So until it is over each day I plan to post an image that provides calmness and a moment of zen. We all need a lot of moments like these right now.

Every day you can find a moment of hope. Right before the sun rises all the birds begin to sing. I think they are welcoming the day and their own renewa. Need some hope, get up early and watch the sun rise, listen to the birds and breathe.

End of Summer Sunrise

Bleeding Heart from Our Pittsburgh Garden

There is something delicate and perfect about bleeding heart. The blooms are small but beautiful and have a unique shape. This one is our garden in Regent Square. It is about 5 years old and quite robust and safe from rabbits and deer.

Quarantine Iris Pittsburgh 5/6/2020

Normally this time of year we would be headed to the Phipps Conservatory to see the Spring Flower Show. Sadly though it is closed due to the global pandemic. Our Pittsburgh garden doesn’t have the quantity or diversity of the Phipps but still some wonderful blooms to soothe the soul.

Yellow Iris

Cathedral of Learning 4/28/2020

It’s strange to be able to stand in the middle of the street and take this shot. No cars, one person walking at high noon. This is our second outing in 7 weeks and still Pittsburghers seem to be following the guidelines for social distancing. This is probably the reason there has not been a big surge in cases here. I hope we have the stamina to keep it up.
