Lucy Pussy and the garden

Found some lovely flowers in the garden after all the rain. No idea what they are but last year they were out for the Garden Party. This year we had a pigeon instead.

Lucy Pussy likes to chase bees (as well as pigeons) and eats them. I imagine they taste sweet. How she doesn’t get stung is a mystery to me. After bee chasing she chills.

  1. I sense a blog series on ‘Teaching Mother Ruth to identify God’s creatures’

    They are iris. Most varieties of iris are purple. They love attention, and are quite at home amidst sudden flashes of gold. Off all the flowers, I suspect they are the ones you should recognize as kindred spirits.

    Lucy Pussy is just lovely. I’ll be she knows what irises are (pretty things to bat and chew, in her case).

  2. Ooh irises lovely. They almost look like a dwarf variety? Goergeous anyway. I trust they will bring in more bees for Lucy Pussy to disect!

  3. Well I love irises now that I know what they are and yes, Mother K, I think I am rather iris-like. Dwarf variety? They are enormous. But that could be the food I’ve been giving all the plants – for the first time in my life, I may add.

    And yes, Sally, that is the cushion cover you gave me. It is so beautiful but I haven’t got around to filling it yet so it drapes on her chair and sets her off wonderfully, I think.

    Agatha, sshhh. Lucy Pussy doesn’t know about the dangerous road at Falkirk yet. We are keeping that to ourselves for now.

  4. Those iris are also known as flags, or “blue flag iris” (Iris versicolor, not that it matters). They are native to North America, and they require less care than the larger, bearded iris. They are quite happy if you say “Aren’t you lovely!” to them while they bloom.

  5. Nearly took a photo of some iris in a neighbour’s garden today and ended up thinking about performing rights so didn’t do it. Thanks for yours.
