Irises in the rain

Rainy Saturday

It was a very damp morning in Quimperland…

…but the Irises are in bloom! So Mary Ann paid a visit to the back garden…

The social distancing situation means Mary Ann couldn’t make her annual trip to our friend’s garden to visit the Quaker Ladies…

  1. This is such a lovely, evocative post. The photo of Mary Ann with the single tear and the iris with the rain droplets are very special. I am so happy to know about the Quaker Lady irises.

    • Thank you! We love irises and were as sorry as Mary Ann to miss our visit…my very kind friend helped heal our sorrows with the lovely gift of these special flowers.

  2. Hitty Mary Ann with her single tear is exactly what we all are feeling…trying to make the best of a very trying and difficult time in the world. Taking a walk in nature and seeing its beauty helps.

    • Truly this has been a difficult time, and I am always glad to spend some time with dear little people who have very small adventures and whose problems are usually solved by a cup of tea, a walk in nature or a bouquet of flowers.

  3. we also love the iris here in Country Hitty Land. Mary Ann is lovely. always so serene and caring.
    Her bonnet is so very nice.

    • Isn’t an iris a beautiful sight! Even in the rain they glow with colour and uplift my spirits…Mary Ann was very glad to share her walk with you (and wouldn’t dream of going outdoors without a respectable bonnet!)

  4. Bless the friend who sent along the Quaker Ladies. I trust that the tear(s) were somewhat wiped with that gesture of valued friendship, despite the current circumstances.

  5. Mary Ann is glad to have gotten a reminder from our friend, that kindness and friendship go both ways and that current circumstances may alter the delivery but not the substance.
