IRISES 2024

 Dear Blog Friends,   It's been too long!!!!  Can't believe that the last time I wrote a Blog Post was on Feb. 1st...   SORRY!!! George and I are still plugging along!!!!  Since I last wrote,  here are some of the things we have done:  Went to Mt. Nebo,  Arkansas in February;   Went to Florida to spend several days with George's Family in March;  Spent some time at Biltmore (to see the Tulips) in April;   In April, we spent a weekend  in Townsend, TN (Cades Cove) -- with my family to spread more of my son Bert's ashes on the day that he died one year ago (April 21).  

On the 29th of April,  we will spend a day at Fall Creek Falls,  and in June--we hope to spend our 23rd Wedding Anniversary at the Pisgah Inn, North Carolina...

SO--as you can tell,  even though we don't travel as much as we used to,  we are still putting one front in front of the other!!! We keep on pushing on, and won't allow my neuropathy problem keeping me from walking much these days,  or George's horrible back problem limiting his walking and working in the yard.  We definitely won't give up!!! George turned 82 in March and I will turn 82 in August.

Today's post will feature some of the beautiful Irises blooming in our yard this month.  Hope you enjoy them.  They always make me smile!!!!
