Everyone has you two to thank for bringing me out of convalescence and back to blogging!This one is "Jessi's Song" and was our first iris to bloom this year! "Elainealope"

"Snow Mound"



Will cats and a dog do instead? I can't seem to locate the "Buns". They must be hiding. Probably didn't want to be washed again! I just did throw one in the wash the other day. Shelby, our "deer" dog. We've had her a whole year now.
This is one of the kittens from Sheba's latest litter with Sarah, as in Palin, who is one of Abigail's kittens last August. I'm so glad we decided to keep her after Suki died. I couldn't have made it through all my post op trouble without her. She laid on my lap and purred day in and day out, sensing that I needed her to take my mind off how I felt. Now that I'm finally up and about, she's moved on to taking care Sheba's kittens.

Grandad's iris, "Romantic Evening". It does kind of look like a ball gown.


It's been a long winter, what with having total knee replacement surgery the beginning of January, and then heart valve and stomach problems from the post op drugs. I'm just now getting my strength back. You know it's been cool and rainy when the lilacs and iris are in bloom at the same time! It still feels like winter, and the rain just keeps coming down by the buckets.
The rhodies are loving this rainy weather. This one by the lamp post, I threatened last year. If it didn't bloom I was going to yank it out! It bloomed for the first time in years!!!

The delphiniums are not quite as upright anymore after the heavy down pours we've had lately.
