About the optimistic lupine and erotic iris

A heatwave in Finland and Lapland, and desastrous floods in Germany and Hongary. It is June 2013. In Belgium, we have the weather as we have the politics: a compromise. Until a week ago, we had plenty of rain, and last weekend we had some really sunny days.

And, see it takes only a few days of sun to let the flowers burst out in their full beauty and splendor, as if nothing unusual happened. We, human creatures, could use them as an example of undestructable optimism.

With an Ipad in hand, I made a small tour of our garden to enjoy the grandeur of the lupine, and the erotic air of the iris.
