The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: Not So Sunny Sunday

Not So Sunny Sunday

Not So Sunny Sunday

Today was supposed to be the first sunny day that we would have had after a week full of rain, but instead that sunny day was yesterday and today was quite cloudy and cool.  However, the bearded iris in my yard didn't seem to mind . . .

We've finally had a couple of days of sunshine Chris. Been a damp cold spring here in Michigan. Hope you see the sun tomorrow.

Beautiful iris pictures.  I use to live close to an iris farm in Missouri.  Such delicate and beautiful flowers.  I will send some sun from Florida.

Hi Randy - I think it is supposed to be a cloudy week with thunderstorms.  Hope Mother Nature gets this out of her system and gives us a beautiful June!

Hi Rhonda - I can't imagine living close to an Iris Farm!  How cool would that be?  My parents tell me that it is rather hot in Florida today . . .

Ahh, the iris's look so pretty and perky and can surely brighten a day even if the sun won't shine on them!  I love the lavender.

We could get your photographs to pass as Maryland flowers.  Our spring is just a little ahead of yours.

 Blooming for you!

Hi Sue - Yes, they do add a bit of sunshine.  I have a great collection of different iris in my gardens.

Hi Roy - I watch your blog to see what will bloom next in Connecticut.  : )

Chris, always love looking at flowers. They are so cheerful. The sun will be there soon enough. ;-)

Chris, nice photos, my parents had a couple of beds of the purple bearded iris.  Brings back many fond memories to see them!

Chris, once again, it looks as though your climate is very similar to ours here on the west coast.

Don't you just love the name "Bearded Iris"? It's such a perfect description of that flower. Beautiful pictures!

Hi Chris,

I love bearded irises.  Isn't the rain just tiring?  At least we are spared some of the really destructive weather across the country.

Chris, the weather certainly didn't pan out to be all that it was hoped to be, and the week won't be much better.

Hi Teri - glad you enjoyed them!

Hi Tony and Darcy - Glad I could spark some memories for you!  These iris came from my mother-in-laws gardens, so they bring back memories every time the bloom.

Hi Ted - It certainly seems that way!

Hi Sheila - If by "tomorrow" you mean next week, you are right!  : )

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Hi Rose - Yes, it is the perfect name.  I don't understand "Siberian Iris" . . . they are not covered with ice.  : )  Those are the next that will be blooming!

Hi Lisa - The rain is tiring, but I will take it any day to tornadoes!!

Hi Ed - Saturday wasn't bad, but I am anxious for a nice sunny day.  It can then feel free to rain during the night.  : )

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Chris,

Glad to see your beautiful garden. The colors are vibrant and cheery. I know it will be even nicer when the sun comes out and I hope it comes out soon.

Your garden is looking great!
