The drizzly rain and thick fog that blanketed us Friday through Sunday enjoy this place so much they’ve decided to extend their vacation here until Wednesday, June 21, according to the weather forecast. Grand vistas of the rolling sea under blue sky and rockbound coast under tall spruce have disappeared; the end of our world now is a visually impenetrable wall that is less than 100 yards away.

However, within that 100 yards, some of the smaller scenery is lush and lovely. Here we have a Dwarf Iris, bejeweled in raindrops. The flower is named after Iris, the Greek Goddess of the Rainbow. We’re hoping to see its namesake in a day or so. (Brooklin, Maine)
