Monday's blessings...

peonies are budding...

we are about 4 weeks ahead of schedule here...

iris, too...

these should be about ready the time Memorial Day comes around...

so what's in it for the summer?
the growing season?

my partner in crime yesterday...
(he was sitting down)
my peonies are not that tall...
or...
he's short, but not that short...

we worked out here yesterday morning...
pulling the dead stalks and leaves out where we could...

there's one iris there already blooming...

I am so stiff and sore this morning...
gotta get this worked out and get back on my feet...
81 yesterday, but there is rain and a little cooler weather coming...
nothing terribly cold or anything like that...

I have heard a long dry summer...
and with an early spring, you get an early fall...
long or short fall?
long or short winter?

I am in a dilemma here...
the earth says- "PLANT!"
but my calendar says-
"WAIT!"

meanwhile, up north...
they are still in winter mode...
and down south...
they're swimming...

so we are just so blessed being right here...
right now...

farmers are popping that corn in the ground as fast as they can go...
;0)
have great days...
