Seeing lots of irises around the neighborhood. These were near Warren's house.

Our peony bush seems to be allowing only one flower at a time. However, there are a couple other buds...

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was a couple weeks ago and we had Mom over for brunch. It was a gorgeous afternoon so we took advantage of it by sitting in the back yard.

Around the Neighborhood

So much is blooming this month. Above are some shots from around the neighborhood. Love the irises. Not sure what the orange and yellow stuff is.


I love May. The chance that the weather is going to be pleasant increases significantly thought the month. We had Alyn and Ellis over for a BBQ yesterday and were able to sit out in the back yard due to the weather being absolutely gorgeous. We had a chance to talk to Deb over the back fence about the squirrels raiding her patio for the loose white stones she has between her garden stones. 

Above is a picture of a neighbor's Bridal Wreath Spirea. Noel seemed to think this was bougainvillea but I set her straight. A few years ago, Jim trimmed back his Bridal Wreath which borders our yard. It was such a crime as they didn't seem to flower much for a few years. They seem to be coming back.
