    What a beautiful setting.
    Makes me mourn my Japanese irises, they bloomed nearly a month ago here in SW Missouri 🙂

    What stunning evening light, with the cool greens and soft purples and lavender grays – perfect for the scene and for the subtle references. That iris screen has been a favorite of mine for decades, since I first saw it when I was in my early twenties.
    What strikes me today about this bridge style is that it forces you to stop your onward motion and be present in the moment. It slows down one’s “progress” through the garden. Just what we need!

    I love the I-R-I-S-E-S of the Carpenter poem.
