It was June 5, 2022. The Iris flower season was just beginning in the Lake Harriet Gardens.
A storm came through the garden.
Irises were battered.
Weathering all the changes
Delicate brief expressions of spring
Announced the roses will soon arrive.
My friend the robin appeared
Proudly heralding his return.
A sign of reassurance for me
This resurgence of a blooms, birds and bees
Bursting with renewed force
A reminder of
Life’s sheer beauty!
Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
Have a good day wherever you are.
