A Very Happy Easter to You

Several years ago, my mother was given these iris by an elderly neighbor. Mom planted some of them in her yard and passed the rest along to me.

A bouquet of iris blooming in my backyard.

Blooming only once a year, and for such a short time, these stately flowers are a lesson to us of how fleeting life’s wonderful moments can be … and how precious those times are.

Today, they’re a reminder of my late mother–of her love and willingness to share.

May God bless you on this Easter Sunday, and in the days to come. May you find many moments of fulfillment and joy as you pursue your dreams.

  1. Beautiful! How I miss my irises that grew so well in Oklahoma. Don’t grow as well here, but I’m still trying! And oh, the blooms that do grow!
    Happy Easter, dear friend.
