Weekly Photo Challenge: On the Way

While I’m out on my bike rides I come across so many beautiful things.  My daughter is often with me, and I know it irritates her sometimes when I’m constantly wanting to stop along the way to snap photos of what I see, especially if we’re on a time crunch.  I feel bad, but I can’t help myself ~ I’ve always been a “stop and smell the roses” type of person, literally and figuratively.  Well, there aren’t any roses blooming around here just yet, but there are lots of other lovely things in bloom right now, some of which I’ve already shared in previous posts.  But just take a look at these beautiful yellow irises I came upon the other day…


Mmm… lemony!


May you find many lovely (and lemony) things along the way in your day today too…

  3. I do the same thing to my family, stopping to look at, smell or snap photos of things. I know it must drive them all crazy but Smarty is the only one that shows his impatience! Your iris photo is beautiful! It is such a cheerful, lemony yellow.

    • My sister is the only one who lets me “stop and smell the roses” without showing any annoyance, even when we’re on a mission she’s always indulgent of me. 🙂 Haha Smarty is the impatient one? You would think he’d be slower paced at his age – maybe he just wants to take in as much as he possibly can. Sounds like he’s found a wonderful home and family with you guys. ❤
      Thanks Trisha! Yeah, a lot of the yellow colored irises I've seen are more of a dull yellow tone, but this one was so vibrant. 🙂

  8. I just picked some iris from my garden tonight that look just like this one – a very old variety. And yes, they are very lemony! 🙂
