Last year our duplex-neighbor gave us a bunch of iris bulbs, and they didn't flower. Not knowing that they don't flower the first year in the ground, I tried my hardest to pull the darn things out last fall... and again this spring... but it was no use.
How glad am I now that I couldn't get them out?! They are amazing, and they smell heavenly. Here are some of the irises, enjoying the rain.
Today Zoe and Ashley got mail from Grama Patti. Very exciting. Inside the envelope was two homemade puzzles. So cool.
Then, late this afternoon the girls and I were playing around, making jewelry with beads that our neighbor picked up at a garage sale, and I made these earrings. What do you think? I think they're swell =)
