Easter morning shower

Easter started with a heavy downpour before 7am. I am sure that's not the way everyone wanted to start their Easter Sunday, but we can't complain about the rain. My purple iris bloomed, got a bit water logged though.



The Annual Terrell Heritage Jubilee begins the 17th and runs through the 19th. Make your plans to come to Terrell, bring cash. The carnival opens on the 15th. For me Saturday is the best day. They have the BBQ cook offs, antique cars, dog shows and this year at 1pm the Terrell Tigers play. I better get my rest while at work this week.

The Jubilee is held in Ben Gill Park.

The colour of the iris is quite beautiful and the raindrops give it a true look of realism. Nice!

You probably needed the rain and raindrops do give a flower foto some extra pizzaz!

Very nice!

Wow this is so beautiful. I saw a similar flower but is pink in my Singapore Botanic Garden. I will try to find it and see if they do belong to the same species.

You should be so proud of that beautiful iris, Jim, just as proud as you are of the rain. Yep, get your rest so that you can take lots of photos for us to see!
