Taking an Iris Break

I set out to walk six miles yesterday -- and did!  Not sure if it counts as training because I took an iris break at around mile two to enjoy the early signs of spring in Central Park's Conservatory Garden.  It was about a week later than last year's Iris expedition (Season Spring, Forecast Snow) and felt a lot colder because of the clouds and threatening rain (which showed up around mile 5) but the Irises seemed to have held up under the heavy rains on Saturday.  The crocus (or is that croci?), on the other hand, had not fully bloomed yet.  Maybe next weekend?
