Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. Also welcome to AUGUST...Today's photo was taken at Biltmore. I wanted to share this picture since I love the reflections in the lake of those gorgeous clouds, with the Biltmore House in the distance. Have a great month ahead.

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!!!!


Hugs,
