RE: Just popping in for a minute

Melody, I REALLY need some of your energy!  My irises are in glorious bloom.
I don't know where the yellow one came from, but it is such a bold, clear
yellow that it is most certainly welcome.  The sky blue iris are also in
bloom and are a little bit of heaven on the side of the drive way.  Everyone
has been blown away by their appearance.  But here's the wonderful news:
the peonies I dug from mother's yard last spring are up.  Some seem pretty
small.  Others look pretty full and healthy.  The white ones from my Aunt
Lorraine's yard given to mother have started to bloom!!!  The fragrance is
wonderful!  My columbines have happily seeded around and more are always

I had hoped to dig out the mailbox garden to re-vamp it and extend it with
that weeping cherry tree and many other little goodies I've been given this
spring, but it has just poured today.  The weather folks are forecasting the
same all blasted weekend!  UGH!  Pam, I sure wish I could send you some!

Subject: [CHAT] Just popping in for a minute

Just catching up here and thought I'd take a minute to say hello. Iris
are blooming, so are the daisies and columbines. Rose bushes and peonies
are loaded with tons of buds. The trees seem to be recovering from their
frostbite from a couple of weeks ago. We've had lots of rain so the
gardens are looking very lush and full of gorgeous foliage...any day now
I'm expecting to see tons of flowers.

Trying to keep up with weeding as best as I can but it's tough. So many
loads of laundry behind I can't even count but what little spare time I
have I prefer to spend outside. We re-did our little water feature...dug
it a bit wider and deeper as we found the water was evaporating too fast
otherwise and we were having to add water every day or so...pain in the
rear that was. Added an extension to one of the beds and put in
seeds..we'll see what grows. I'll try to get some piictures of what is
blooming now, especially the iris and this one unbelievable columbine.
gotta go...my son is having a birthday party and my house is being over
run by half a dozen 10 and 11 year old boys. I'll be packing them off
with the DH to see Star Wars 3 in a couple of hours and then they will
all be consigned to the backyard, sleeping in a tent for the night.

Take care all of you...glad you found Jim.
