Flower & Moving Updates

My tall Iris flowers are now out.  The only problem with the tall Iris plants is that they go down in the wind, and wind is certainly not uncommon here.

Well – maybe the flowers aren’t everywhere – but they seem to be in every corner of my yard right now.  I love this time of year.  🙂 The Blue Spruce has come a long way from the little 4 inch twig that Angie brought home from the community club when she was about 3… Continue reading Flowers Everywhere
