  2. Those red irises are amazing! I am going to order that color to add to my collection, the red is so unusual amongst the purples. Do you have a book of quotes that you use, or have you been writing these down for years?🥰

    • Google is my friend, Kathy. 🙂 Although I will use a book, Facebook, or anywhere when I find a quote that I like.

      The red is so dark, that it looks almost black unless the sun is shining on it! Love it!

  5. Love the flowers, as usual, but also loved the Colin Powell quote … Always focus on the front windshield and not the rear view mirror.

    I have to scroll through these posts twice, once to look at the flowers, then again to read the quotes!
