Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise
This was genuine and happened yesterday, most conveniently for the weekly challenge. I wandered out onto the balcony in the morning and looked down into the woods. Something was different. There was a splodge of purple that had never been there before. I got the camera.
Time to zoom in …
The colour reminded me of a clematis or an iris … but how could that happen suddenly in the middle of the wood? This morning I scrambled down the bank between the trees …
And there it was! A beautiful tall iris with two more buds waiting to bloom. Never before has an iris grown down there. It’s magic!
Isn’t nature incredible. I can only assume that birds or the wind helped a seed down there.
Iris, no doubt, has been a big and rather beautiful surprise!
