Early birds....

For some reason, this iris has been blooming for about a week.  It is weeks ahead of all the others.
I suppose the reason they are early is that they have migrated to being right against the house.  Whatever the reason, I am enjoying it.
So frilly and pretty.  Always makes me think of a princess dressed for the ball.
We have rain in the has rained enough to make everything damp.  And the temps are cooler than yesterday.  I am not sure what to do with the day.  It would be a good day to go to the greenhouse to see if we can find more brandywine tomato plants...and we may do that, but I have gotten till I just love to be home.

I have been sitting here watching a pair of cardinals.  I wonder if they have a nest.  The male has been feeding the female.  If I have seen that before I don't remember it. I think it is too early for babies, but maybe she is getting ready to lay her eggs.

It is time for me to be getting off here.  Time I decide on something to do.  I do have fabric coming today.  I have enough crumb blocks made to make another crumb quilt top.  This time I am using gray in it....
