Irises are in bloom.

...and so is the catmint.

Iris; Diet Update

In all the years my mom had a bed of irises, I never once noticed how that gorgeous blossom came to be. 

Last year, my niece was thinning hers, and gave me some rhizomes. We planted them, and I would check on the foliage from time to time to see if everything appeared to be going well. 

One day, I noticed slight bulges in some of the leaves, and the next time a looked, those bulges had become bud-like structures. It reminded me of a butterfly in its cocoon, crumpled inside a pocket, waiting for the right moment to be set free. 

Thanks for sharing your bounty with me, Diane. :)

South Beach Diet update: Had an appointment with my doctor today for trigger point injections, and found out I’ve lost four pounds so far!
