Looking the opposite direction at Lake Eugenia from the swans we saw yesterday, you're looking at a confined shallower area beyond the causeway. For whatever reason they didn't clear the stumps in this part of the lake as completely as on the other side. Although they're all underwater in the summer, during the spring drawdown it's just a sea of stumps!
If I wasn't stuck in my wheelchair inside the car on a busy road I could spend all day photographing reflections here.
Meanwhile, back here at the ranch the warmth has encouraged the first flowers to bloom, tiny dwarf Iris in a brilliant royal blue. I loved these, the first spring flowers at our former home, so Mrs. F.G. ordered some bulbs and planted them last fall. Now I'll always have them to enjoy here too, They're in the small strip of scree garden right beside the front sidewalk where I can look down on them.
Beautiful iris. That sea of stumps would provide a lot of fish habitat when the water's higher.ReplyDelete
The iris are so beautiful. Great colors. The stumps do seem to look like a disaster zone. If they thought that they would rot in the water, they did not. Strange sight.ReplyDelete
I've never seen so many stumps like that!ReplyDelete
So nice to see those small signs of spring.
Such pretty iris! I can see why you enjoy them so much, so do I.ReplyDelete
Lovely wee Irises!ReplyDelete
The stumps do make a fascinating sight.ReplyDelete
We remember enjoying a couple of paddles in the channel amongst the stumps. The grandsons especially thought it was pretty neat.ReplyDelete
The reflections are unique. The stumps make the scene eerie somehow.ReplyDelete
Like the first commenter I too thought maybe the stumps might make for a good fish habitat. Pretty little Iris flowers.ReplyDelete
Congrats on those very early spring flowers.ReplyDelete
It's obviously not a place to swim. Interesting that they would leave all the old stumps there.ReplyDelete
What pretty little flowers. They must be quite hardy. Take care, stay well.
I'm so happy for you, as your garden unfolds. I'm looking forward to more!
Those iris are gorgeous! Hooray for spring flowers!ReplyDelete
Beautiful colours in one flower, how can man copy that? Love your road views, beautiful too.ReplyDelete
Spring flowers!! Such pretty ones too!ReplyDelete
