The wild iris called yellow flags are in full bloom.
About thirty-five years ago, I dug up a clump from the wild and set them out on the edge of a branch near our house
When we had our pond dug -- maybe twenty years ago -- and when it finally filled with water, I divided my yellow flags and set a few on the bank of the pond.
As you can see, they have prospered.
Isn't it wonderful what a little time can do!
