It is a particularly nice one.

An early spring, with nice long evenings, not too much rain. And that brings out the roving salespeople, trying to promote new roofs, gutters, yard services, etc. One evening this week, a young man was trying to get me to book an evaluation for gutters (which I do need, but I'm not going to submit to an in-house sales pitch). He seemed a little distracted, for which he apologized saying it was the end of his shift, and by the way, what kind of flower is that? I said it was an iris. 'Eye-riss?' he repeated, as though he had never heard the word. He said he had never seen anything like it, and thought it looked alien and other-worldly.
