Slender Blue Flag (Iris prismatica)

Six A.M. Saturday and on our third day of rain. A positive for the flora and fauna, but not for Benny and I who had planned a morning of Walleye fishing on Lake Galilee in neighboring Wisconsin. Here at Rauhallinen Farm, the Blue Flag are now in full bloom, along with other recent emergents such as Orange Hawkweed, Smoothish-Hawkweed (yellow), Oyster-Plant (which produces a king-size dandellion-like seed head),
and the Common Buttercup.

"Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize that there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you."
