|Cable Car Iris|
Our IRISES in the yard have been FABULOUS this spring... AND the good news is that many of them are re-bloomers --so we'll have them blooming again in the Fall. In this blog post (click HERE
), I showed you several of our Irises... SO today I'll show you some more of our 19 different varieties... Above is always a favorite every year. Its name is CABLE CAR. I love the 'rust' color of this one. We took several photos after a rain--since we enjoy seeing the 'drops' on the flowers. Be sure and enlarge the photos in order to see them larger.
|Electric Shock Iris|
Wish you could see this one in person.. It has SEVERAL colors --and changes when the sun is on it... Such a beauty!!!!
|Floor Show Iris|
Here is another multi-colored beauty. Do you like this one?
|English Charm Iris|
This is another pretty Iris.... The raindrops were really clinging to this one!
|Halloween Halo Iris|
If you like Pastels, you will love this Iris... The bright orange beards would remind one of Halloween I suppose...
|Southern Belle Rose|
Here's two more of the gorgeous Roses beginning to bloom in our yard. The one above is named SOUTHERN BELLE.... George brought one of these into the house ---and you should smell it... WOW!!!!
|Summer of Love Rose|
Finally, this beauty is named SUMMER OF LOVE. I love all of the different colors in this rose...
|Dave, Bonnie, Betsy and George|
We visited my cousin, Bonnie, and her hubby, Dave, at a Camping and Hang-Gliding area on the top of the mountain near Dunlap, Tennessee on Monday. Bonnie and Dave have a new (GORGEOUS) motor home ---and are enjoying traveling these days. We had a wonderful visit with them. Isn't that a great view of the Sequatchie Valley?
BLUEBIRD UPDATE: I have done tons of research and talked to LOTS of people about my Bluebird Tragedy. (See Monday's blog for details.) Click HERE
to see a great website if you are interested. Apparently, my culprit must have been a SNAKE.. Once the Bluebirds nest again, we will keep the pole greased--which will keep a snake off of the nestbox (I hope)... I also need a new type of baffle (made with stove pipe)... NOW--if Daddy Blue can find a new mate, maybe they'll try again. We have cleaned out the nestbox for them... Thanks SO SO much for your thoughts, suggestions and prayers. This has been hard for me!!!
I need to apologize AGAIN for not getting to your blog posts much this week. Besides our trip on Monday and doing research on Bluebirds, I have been working in the yard (power-washing the deck and cleaning the deck furniture).... Fun fun!!!
ONE MORE THING: Any of you who use Google+ as your profile, be sure and put your blog URL on there somewhere. Otherwise, people cannot find your blog to comment. Thanks!!!
Hope you are having a 'fan-tabulous day' enjoying life..... Get outside and enjoy yourself!!!!
