If the warm weather continues it should be at peak by the middle of next week!

Pam -- I love your garden shots -- how I wish I could have an Iris garden like yours!! Lovey dubby

Then I see that wheelbarrow filled to overflowing and it reminds me how much work is required for a garden that size. Don't think I'm up for that anymore. But I sure love to look at yours!!!

Thanks All!

Mary Ann Last year I started hitting the weeds really hard with Preen and another pre-emergent and a grass killer. I am not a big fan of chemical warfare - but I am also not so young and limber anymore. The knees and back were doing way too much complaining.
There is still a lo of work, but it is at a manageable level now.

OK - time for the tour! This is newer stuff, well for me anyway, in the order that they have bloomed.

Nice pictures Pam... Everytime I see 'Daughter of Stars', I think I should get it.. must add to my wishlist-with a star.
And in the, "There's no hope for me" dept... I misread 'Drinks at Sunset' as 'Drunks at Sunset'... I mishear song lyrics too.
