New to me

This is a new iris in my yard...I don't know the official color name...but we totally love it. It is the only color blooming but we don't have long to wait. They are all loaded with blooms.

I don't know about where you are at, but here on the western edge of Indiana the wind has not stopped for two days. If you had a hang-glider, you wouldn't need to jump from anything. The wind would just take you away...maybe not to where you want to go but you would be gone. Roger said the weatherman said we had had gusts up to 35 mph, but I would bet money they are wrong. At least for where I am at.

I have been having a hard time deciding on what I want to blog about...just in a mood. However, I have seen Lorelei two days this week...she was wonderful both days. I went and stayed with her Tuesday, as previously mentioned. Then she and her mommy came up here yesterday while someone came and viewed their house. Her husband has spent the past couple of weeks in training at his new place of employment and starts his regular shift next week. It is over an hour drive one way to work, so hopefully their house will sell and they can find one over there soon.

Today is my other daughter's last day of work here...she has leave she has to take next week. We will be moving her stuff here to store in our garage...she will actually spend a couple nights here before heading to Georgia. This is sure happening faster than I expected...I thought she would still be here come this fall...boy, did I get a surprise. With all the traveling she will be doing, we got her a GPS...she will be up this weekend to get it.

For now, I am going to get off and post this...hopefully I will eventually get back to blogging on a regular basis.

Beautiful Iris, Rose... That's a pretty color...

I know you are struggling that your older daughter is moving... It's so hard to let our kids grow up and move away... BUT--that's just life... Darn!!!!

We've had high winds this week also... The oak pollen is EVERYWHERE...

Hugs,
Betsy

Rose: That is such a beauty.

That is a beautiful Iris. I haven't seen it before either. It's hard when our kids move away. I only have the one and he is still in the area but I think one day he and his wife will probably want to see what's on the other side of that hill, depending on work situations too.

That is a beautiful color. I don't have any in my yard. I love our GPS and we got one for each of our 3 youngest girls for Christmas. Two of them live in Minnesota and they use them all the time, and our daughter who's still in High School has one too. So now I don't worry so much about them getting lost.

A lovely lovely iris, and nice capture!

We just had a thunderstorm with really hard rain and I'm afraid it may have smashed the tomato seedlings! :-(

I wish for an iris...or something like that. Very pretty, Rose, and nice to hear that you'll soon be inundated with color.

Re the wind...it's been as windy as a Washington politician here for a couple of months! Crazy. We don't say "Goodbye" when someone leaves anymore, we say "Hang on to your hat!"

The Iris has a beautiful color. The irises here are still in the leafy stage. It'e that late spring still holding things back. The GPS is a nice gift for your daughter.

The iris is beautiful, Rose. I can tell this is a stressful time for you. Change is never easy, is it? Hang in there! And, yes, I'd LOVE to see you blogging more!

What a gorgeous iris! I love the color! I have 2 different purple ones blooming right now and my very tall white one. All that wind you mentioned along with the rain is really beating on them and the peonies! Some of the iris are lying on the ground. I staked the white one today. All the family changes are hard to deal with at times. We love our kids and want them near us, no matter how old they are!
