The Morning After

See the worm in her mouth? You may have to enlarge to see it, but she's working hard to feed her babies. :) The irises are starting to bloom. I have a miniature peach iris that I took a photo of-- for another day. My phlox, starting to bloom and smelling oh so heavenly...the morning after this photo, not a bloom in sight. Clean cut. So who's the culprit? The bunnies? :/ We had rain yesterday. The ground had started to dry out again and was ready for a drenching. The pollen has been thick in the air, and allergies are running riot around here. This morning is so clean and fresh, the sun shining highlights on everything it touches. Mornings after rain are just so clean and beautiful.

Angie, my phlox is not anywhere near blooming. Guess I will have to sprinkle rabbit repellent grains around? No robins here, but lots of worms.

I love mornings after a rain too! Your flowers are so pretty and the iris is one of my favorites, ours are not blooming yet.

I'm so happy the pollen will soon be over.

I have never seen blue phlox before. Ours were always pink or white. Shame the rabbits find them so delicious!
