Spring has given us a surprise out of nowhere; an iris started blooming! I have a vague memory of an iris bloom a few years ago. I thought it died afterwards since it was buried in a pot with other plants and never bloomed since. I brought that pot of plants over to my garden when we moved.
I recently noticed this purple beauty. I think the green spikes were camouflaged by the neighboring green plants for awhile. There’s 3 more buds coming! This plant survived the move, and is doing better than ever! I love when I find plants growing from (seemingly) nowhere.
Below is another surprise I found recently in my garden. I posted a picture of my dense clump of air plants a couple of weeks ago. It hadn’t ever bloomed for me before, until recently…and what a sight! I love the neon pink and purple flowers!
I just love surprises in the garden!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
