Things happen so fast now in the garden. On Sunday I crouched down next to these and didn't even se a bud. Today, three days later, out of the corner of my eye, I see something blue in my rock garden. I can't believe it. I feel like I missed everything in between. They tricked me. I feel as if I missed the delivery of my little baby irises. Like the party had started without me. We had two days of rain between Sunday and today, and that's how I missed it, I think. I don't spend much time outside in pouring rain. For some reason, I seem to think that if it is cold and rainy, then nothing will happen in the garden. But it does. Maybe I should buy myself a nice pair of rubber boots and a cute rain jacket and head outside next time we have a rainy day.
