I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Ms Iris

I noticed the friendly face of Iris poking her head up out of the garden undergrowth today.  

She is a water iris with her feet firmly planted in a small pond.  


  1. Wa, gorgeous flowers! that colour is fantastic!i really liked..

  2. Such intense purple is always a feast to the eyes.

    Glad to vsit your blog and wish you a merry Christmas and New year.

  3. That's beautiful Hazel, what are all the pointy leaves around it?

    Hey, today it's holoidi... I think that's how they say hello in Dutch.

    Oops buggered that one up and now it's semogi. That's halfway to being a yogi.

  4. What a strikingly beautiful purple iris.

  5. Beautiful photo of beautiful flower

  6. The leaves around the iris are Japanese Windflowers which grow like wonderful weeds in the garden.

  7. Hi Hazel, gorgeous flowers so fantastically photographed. I'm sorry I missed your buzzing crabapples post and I've been going through your earlier posts and can't see it. Would you give me a link to it? cheers, cm
