A beautiful spring

We ran by the home of Jilda's sister yesterday. She lives on a small farm not far from where we live. Her yard is a garden and her fields are filled with fruit trees, vegetables, and berries. She, along with her husband and son keep it as well maintained as a country-club golf course.

We'd stopped by her house to borrow an incubator. We want to hatch out a batch of baby chicks and our chickens don't seem to be the motherly type. 

As I was about to get back into the car to leave, this purple iris was so vivid in the evening sun, that it would have been wrong not to get a photograph. I try not to knowingly do things that are wrong, so I pulled the phone from my pocket and snapped this picture.
I hope spring where you live is as beautiful as it is here.


  1. Spring has finally just about started... it just needs to warm up a little more... great picture, I love purple ;-)

  2. Spring is two to three weeks behind here, according to the local nursery. My iris leaves are about four inches tall.

  3. Great capture Rick. You caught it at the perfect moment with the perfect sun angle.

  4. That photo should be printed en mass, framed, and promoted. So darn beautiful.

    How many chicks are you hoping to hatch??

  5. I think it would be so cool to have some chickens and think about getting some every so often.

    New life is always so wonderful.Blessed is the eye that discovers that!

  7. We're just starting to see spring open her arms to us little by little. Pretty picture...looks like spring is full blown by you!
