These will soon turn into something very gorgeous . . .


In the very near future, these boring blades of grass will burst forth in color! They are my favorite flower and are wild and indigenous to Louisiana. Do you know them?


And look at this setup. Those beautiful red berries offsetting the gray and green. What an eye-catching picture in mid-winter. These photos were taken on upper Bayou Dularge. Termite was practicing his landscaping skills and doing fairly well. No, mothers are not biased in any way!

Be sure and come back and see these blades turn into “Blades of Glory”!

  1. Hey BW, nice to see some green and red during the winter! Are those some type of iris or lily? I know there is a beautiful delicate white type of iris that grows in water, I love those but dont know them by name. The blades look like iris or lilies. Can’t wait to see them in bloom. Love the spanish moss hanging…….always have.

    You’re very close, but we’ll just wait and see!!!

  2. Louisiana Irises? I need to plant some in my yard. Although why bother? My hubby keeps weed-wacking my amaryllis down every year right before they bloom.

    Some of my neighbors have something that look like the pictures, planted in their ditches along the street. None have flowered yet so I’m not sure what they are.

    As always, gorgeous pictures.

    You’re too kind, Katy. But I still can’t tell you what they are!!! You’ll have to wait for the photos!!! A couple more weeks.
