Blue

For bluedausyz 52week photo challenge, this photo was taken some years ago in a former garden of mine – I miss those gorgeous irises and hope to grow more the garden I have now.                                                                                                    The woman we bought that house from, Mrs Barnes, was a farmer in her 80s. As she showed us round the house, before we bought it, she said in her broad Dorset accent,  “I’m not one for dusting, dusting takes your life away, but you can grow with a garden” – a woman after my own heart!

We have 6 regulars in the challenge now, it really is such a lovely thing to share each week – want to join in? We’d love to have you along!                                    Next Week’s subject: Create

  6. I am completely hooked, thanks to you!! Have been waiting for blue skies to photograph my blue–I have a blue subject that I wanted the blue background, but I think it can hold it’s own (it’ll have to with the weather predicted!)

  7. I too love blue iris. So few really true blue flowers. Your Haiku suits it perfectly too, made me double take, ‘where’s the limnanthes?’ Ah, there they are. Sweet. Xx
