Irises on Mother's Day

I wasn't going to post anything, then I thought I would take a minute and post these flowers
and wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day today and get to spend it with your loved ones.
In addition to the flowers, I wanted to take a moment of your time and have you go and read this article from The Off Season. I ran across it a while back and meant to share it then but never got around to it...now I am glad I didn't. It is a good story for a special day....Enjoy! I am proud that it happened a few miles up the road though I don't know any of the people personally.

Beautiful iris, all so pretty.

I have to work today, but my son is out of state and he called me before I left for work. Was great to hear from him, he has traveled 1600 miles in the last 2 days.

Oh Rose, these are beautiful!!! I love that deep dark purple - Mom has some blueish lavender colored ones, but no deep purple ones.

UPDATE: I got to see my daughter today - she's FINALLY started talking to me again! We're suppose to have dinner at mom's Wed & she's going to try to bring Jilly, so we'll see what happens.
(Jilly lives w/ her daddy & his parents - Kes says she couldn't take care of her, so she let him keep her - which is one reason we haven't gotten along cuz I don't believe in giving up your child, but like my mom says, it's time to forgive her - I'm trying!)
