ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
The word Iris means rainbow. Irises come in many colors such as blue and purple, white and yellow, pink and orange, brown and red, and even black.
Since Iris is the Greek goddess for the Messenger of Love, her sacred flower is considered the symbol of communication and messages. Therefore the flower iris in the language of flowers symbolizes eloquence. Based on their color, irises convey varied messages. A purple iris is symbolic of wisdom and compliments. A blue iris symbolizes faith and hope. A yellow iris symbolizes passion while white iris symbolizes purity. A gift of iris can be used to convey many emotions.
Nature often holds up a mirror so we can see more clearly the ongoing processes
of growth, renewal, and transformation in our lives.

NEWS FROM HOME
Not only do we have Iris blooms all around our house, the azalea bushes are blooming too. It's nice to almost always have something blooming as we go through the warmer months. From March or April, depending on the weather, until late November there will be something different until it all freezes over for another year.
We've been noticing a lot of red and black winged butterflies outside too. They are known as Red Admirals. The newspaper said that this year is has been just right for a population explosion of them due to a larger emergence of the native species and waves of migrants from southern states.
They are a welcome sight in our back yard for sure.
I'll probably be spending most of this week at home then go back to the camper next week. I have a few things that need doing here so will try to finish up some projects that I've started.
Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of
strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
