Blue Flag Iris–always beautiful.
The flowers I most hated not to see were Manitoba’s cactus. Many people don’t realize we have cactuses in Manitoba and in my opinion they are every bit as beautiful as those in Arizona, just smaller and less common. They are of course very rare here. In fact one has to ask, “Why here?”
Manitoba’s cactuses are amazingly resilient plants. Obviously built of sturdy stuff. They must be to survive here. Just like the people.
Fortunately it has not sunk in yet how many others I missed. I guess it is time to move on.
