Wild Flowers

The best flowers in my yard are the ones I never planted. They just came with the property and grow unassisted and unbidden. I have chives. They bloom in the late spring. Would you believe that? There’s an actual flower there. I can see real flower parts. And the wild iris? Well, that’s at least what I’m calling it. They grew too. They don’t last long. The rabbits don’t seem to give them any notice. They are water tolerant. The whole area was flooded with the rain for about a week. They will come again in a year. And I can enjoy them without any fuss whatsoever. Yay!
