Irises, The Rainbow in The Garden

While sitting with another mom on a coach bus two days ago, who was also chaperoning our childrens’ class on a school trip, I showed her my blog and photographs. She said,”You must love flowers a lot” and I thought,”What’s not to love about flowers?” They are a feast for our eyes. From a miniscule ones that grow wild, to the big ones that only found in a jungle. Flowers are the perfect decorations for any occasion. They’re the perfect touch of nature, and among the many kinds of flowers I’ve seen at Elizabeth Park, in Hartford, Irises were there in many exuberant colors. We visited the park two weeks ago and I was glad that the park was in full bloom. Like rainbow in the garden, Irises in yellow, pink, purple, and the color mix that so muddled, you won’t find that sort of colors in a color dictionary. They’re simply fabulous!

“The Amen of nature is always a flower.”

-Oliver Wendell Holmes-

 

(P.S. If you happen to pass by Hartford, Connecticut, come by the Elizabeth Park. You will find this park as a good place to unwind and feast your eyes.)

    ya ampuuuun… cakep-cakep beneeeeer…. bisa numbuh gak ya di Bekasi ? hihihi…
    ini kalau nanam dari umbi ya Dian ?

    • Lebih mirip kayak bawang, mbak Pingkan. Bukan umbi kayak ubi gitu. Iris juga beranak umbinya. Perlu suhu dingin buat umbinya, mbak. Kadang dia suka diam aja atau dormant, nggak berbunga.
