Iris Power

This iris plant has decided it is springtime, due perhaps to recent rains and warmer days than anybody would expect at the end of November. And up it shoves, lifting the brick that obstructs it.

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age ... 

The once-famous Dylan Thomas poem hummed inside my head when I looked at this sidewalk sight.
