Spring is in the air in Texas....
along with the sneezes and watery eyes...
but it is worth is to see these....

I love Iris'...
all mine came from my Mamaw...
and hubbies Grandmother...
they both brought them here from their farms...
when they moved to the big city...
Iris' are a great heirloom plant...
can be passed from generation to generation...

started doing a little yard work yesterday...
my patio was a mess from the winter...


had to do a little little britches proofing....
cactus had to be moved to a new location...
cactus and little busy hands don't do well together...
we had another beautiful day for being outdoors...
I still need to get a new cover for my glider...
I have found a queen or king size sheet works great...
they usually last 6 months or so...
I find them at the thrift store for a couple of bucks...
change colors and designs for a fresh look...
Happy Monday everyone....

My mom has a lot of Iris in her yard. They haven't started blooming yet, still to cold there.
Here we have been in high 70's and low 80's so everything is blooming.

Oh, sweet Deb they are beautiful! Mine have not opened up yet but they have buds. I wish you had a 'subscribe by email' button on all your sites so I could sign up and get an email every time you post. Hugs

Beautiful! I planted some from my niece's yard but they haven't come up yet. Perhaps I should go out there and check!
