Sunday Stroll - June in Bloom

The iris in my garden are blooming,
in many colors.  

All are fragrant, the orange like a child's creamsicle,
and the others like so many scrumptious flavors of cake.
The air in the garden is heady and wild.

It is nearly impossible to walk past
without slowing your pace,
then leaning down to take a long, deep, breath.

The garden is alive with busy pollinators,
knee deep in pollen.
The honeybees especially appreciate 
the purples and blues of chive blossoms
and the plentiful catmint.

the wild blackberry bramble has burst into bloom,
and tiny white bouquets are scattered throughout the woods.

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you joy.

If you have a moment, please go visit Steve Out on the Prairie 
to see all the pretty things that he found on his stroll!

So beautiful Marcie!!!
The way that you described each flower and the lovely photos, I felt that I was walking there, too!
Thank you for letting me stroll along 💮🐝

Hi Marcie, your iris are beautiful! Everything is just blooming so wonderfully now. We finally are getting some heat here and it really helped all the flowers. Al least that's what my itchy eyes are telling me!
Have a good week!

Iris really are gorgeous! I love yours!
I spent the morning in the garden planting petunias, geraniums, wild flower seeds, zinnia seeds, and pinks! Now I'm tired.
I hope you have sunshine, Marcie!
