Spring in the mountains is right around the corner. I can hear the Phoebes start to talk in the cottonwoods, and even though I have not heard the first warble of a Red Winged Blackbird, I know they are preparing to perch on the pond.
The geese are back squawking and ambling around the fields, and the mallards are starting to pair up for their summer of romance.
Under the several feet of snow that is still on the Bridger Range, there are the tiny signs of life that are unseen to us. The first unfurling of the stalks are taking place well under ground of the mountain iris. Not as robust as the garden iris, the mountain iris is a slender flower that is hardy even if it is not so brilliant.
This pretty iris is one that I took while hiking on a late spring day in the Bridger Mountains.
The pretty iris makes a nice floral banner for kitchens or garden sunrooms. This type of banner is simple and perfect for areas that need a little color without overwhelming the area.
