One Day Of Glory

My annual sign that my backyard flowers have begun to bloom usually involves discovering the tattered remains of their former glory strewn across the deck.

The lucky one.

The bluish purple irises are my favorite color of iris. Unfortunately, because they also seem to be my girls’ favorite, they’re also always the first to go. I don’t think a purple iris has ever made it longer than 2 days in my yard, and that’s only because the first day was likely raining.

I feel I wouldn’t mind the kids picking my flowers so much if they could at least pick enough of the stem for display in a vase.

Is that really a skill they need to be taught??
