Stop and smell the irises....

For those looking for my Friday's Fences it is over at my Time Stand Still blog....

I walk out my back door and if the conditions are right, the scent of a bed of white irises is so strong....not sure why it isn't like that all the time. Other times I don't even smell them....but yesterday, as I was mowing out front, I passed by these lovely beauties, and got a whiff of them. What a smell...though I love it I am not sure I would want to smell it all the time....they just smell so sweet.

I just had to show you one last shot of the wisteria...
I think it almost past its prime in the blooming, but still beautiful.
*********************
It was another busy day yesterday, but just things to be done here. Roger and I both mowed the yard...and I scrubbed down my chairs on the front porch as well as the outside of the house that is under the awning....

I have to get ready to head to Terre Haute in a few minutes...Roger has another appointment with the chiropractor. He has helped him immensely with just two visits. And one thing there, we usually don't have to sit and wait and wait.

It is too bad, his fever has started to return...not as bad as the last time, it did for the first time day before yesterday....not sure what to think. I am thinking we will be heading to the medical doctor soon. But just got to get the back in better shape....he could not stand to go and sit and wait. Maybe after today...something about setting really gets to his back when it is bothering him.

Well, I need to get off here and get busy....the kids are coming tonight....though I have not told Sarah about Roger running the temps yet. I really am not sure it is the flu....

The wisteria and iris are beautiful! Hope Roger gets his back straightened up and the temp goes down.

Your wisteria is beautifully abundant! And I love the iris. I have been going around town taking pictures of iris, they are so pretty right now. If his fever is back, he should maybe go to the doctor...does he feel sick? How high is the fever?

Beautiful flowers. I'm impressed with how great they look and their timing. My wisteria is just now climbing and putting out runners...no blossoms in sight yet.
It's amazing how late spring is here this year. A coffee friend who lives near here but at a little higher elevation had snow yesterday! UGH. A fever says Roger's body is fighting some infection. I'm glad you're thinking of a medical doctor is it persists much longer.

Your husband needs to go to the regular doctor. The temperature is not a normal thing. It may be the one thing that is setting his back pain off.

I love the perfume of the iris, too. It reminds me of my childhood when my Mom had so many blooming.

Ellie said...

What a pretty flower I can just imagine how lovely the perfume is from it.
Your poor Roger is certainly struggling at the moment. I hope he is pain free and feels better real soon. Take care!!

Love the pictures of the iris and wisteria. It sounds like Roger needs to see the doctor.

I do love the aroma of irises! I like the pale colour of this one. And even past its prime, wisteria is lovely.

I brought a couple irises into the house just so I can stop and smell them anytime I want.
