Que Sera, Sera

5-5-15 018A tightly bound, delicately wrapped, pin pointed, bundle of potential awaits her unfurling. Do you know what type of flower she is? What she will look like? What color she will be? It won’t take long to find out…just one night and she will open.

Spring is like magic when all that lays dormant comes to life, browns turn to green, buds form on twigs, seeds drop to reproduce, and colors explode while fragrances enchant.

I am reminded of the song made famous by Doris Day, called Que Sera, Sera. It was created by the song-writing team of Livingston and Evans for a Hitchcock movie starring Doris Day and Jimmy Stewart in 1956. It later became her signature song. Funny, but she didn’t want to sing it, thinking it sounded childish. The first lyrics are as follows:

When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother what will I be? Will I be pretty, will I be rich? Here’s what she said to me. Que Sera, Sera, Whatever will be, will be. The future’s not ours to see. Que Sera, Sera. What will be, will be.

So, what is this flower and what color is it? Scroll down and you may be surprised!

  1. Wow, from a purple outside to this luminous flower, how amazing. Powell Gardens has a hill of irises, I went last year when they were at their prime, there are the old fashioned varieties galore, some almost black velvet and more, and the newer hybrids, worth the trip out there.

    • I agree, the color of the opened iris was a surprize. It grew next to purple iris’ so perhaps that had something to do with the outer petals. Powel Gardens sounds wonderful…will try to go soon. Thanks sis.
