Blossom Out of Season

I just have to share this with you–

Yes, an iris bloom, right here in the middle of August. Because of our extreme and extended drought, only a few iris blooms appeared in the spring. About a month ago, rains began to come, and the and the sun-scorched iris leaves shot straight up so happily. Then this beautiful bloom.

As I look at the blossom out of season, I hear the whispers from the old Shel Silverstein poem: “Anything can happen, child, Anything can be.”

And it can–in my life, and in yours.
