A Photo a Week Challenge: Opening

The subject of this week’s photo challenge by Nancy Merrill Photography is OPENING.

How nice that word sounds after two and a half months of being apartment-bound because of the novel corona virus restrictions. Our community is opening, I hope cautiously and wisely. Still I must be careful before racing for that much needed haircut, the longed for T-bone steak, and those missed hugs from my daughters and grandkids.

Also opening at this time of year are the spring flowers. I looked back through my garden albums and selected this photo of a clump of bearded iris ‘Sunny Disposition’ as it opens into its spring glory.
