Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for September 2021 shows a beautiful Sunset with the Shenandoah Valley below. My picture was taken from our room balcony while at Skyland Resort on 8/3/21.

Beautiful Irises and My Bluebirds

I have featured a few of our TEN different Iris blooms on other posts. But--today, I will feature one photo of each one of them. The yellow ones bloomed the best this year, but all were pretty. Above is one of my favorites this year, Orange Harvest. Below are photos of the other nine. Can you pick out a fav????

Autumn Bugler Iris

Cable Car Iris

Cantina Iris

Clarence Iris

Electric Shock Iris

Floor Show Iris

Honey Glazed Iris

Queen Dorothy Iris (Hey Dorothy---How did you get them to name this Iris after YOU?????)

Finally, the small American Iris (whose real name is Siberian Iris I think)


The four Bluebird babies were sleeping UNTIL I opened the door and checked on them... One of them, the hungry one, woke up and opened its mouth for us!!!! They are not quite as 'pink' today---and I can see more feathers.. I think they are about 6-7 days old now. SOOOOOOOO Cute!! (Be sure to click on this picture --to get a better view of the babies.)

Hope you are enjoying Spring!!!! It's been cold here for a couple of days... I had to get the sweats back out of the winter closet. AND--we had to put our electric blanket BACK on our bed.. What's up with that???? They say it's Blackberry Winter!!!!
