I have had this fish for 20+ years and love him so much. I wish I could find more of them. The person that made this one said the fish are a Ooops from making a pot. So she does not make fish anymore. Maybe it was an insult for asking? I think the fish are totally awesome and I would love to have more. If anyone knows where I could find a potter that makes them send me a message(-:

Bloomin' Iris

Some folks call them flags and actually I think that is a good name for them. They stand up and make you take notice while you stroll around the garden. Yup they are attention grabbers.
Here is what is blooming today, with more on the way.
Salute! Cheers!

New Week

Staying busy and keeping happy thoughts(-:
This week I am still working on cleaning the garage. Lots of stuff to go though and get rid of.
Still getting yard work done. A lot there too.
Enough to keep this Grandmothers mind off her little Princess?
No probably not. I'm sure they will be fine. I just miss her so much.
But next week it will all be back to normal.(-:
I don't know what people did before the internet and IM. It does make life easier. I got this picture this morning before they went to have breakfast. Today is my daughters 30th birthday. What a fun way to spend her day! Time just goes by so fast. When the Princess is 30 I probably won't be alive. I would be 86. I can't even imagine being 66 let alone 86. (-: My Dad lived to be 84 and my Mom lived to be almost 85. Just two months short. So who knows I guess it is possible I might live that long. Will I still be blogging though?(-:

Catching Up

Trying to get the yard in order is hard. So much to do in between rain storms.
More rain coming tomorrow through next week. Spring has been rainy, but the flowers are looking good!
I got this new tree planter. So cute.

Baked baguettes today for smoked pulled pork sandwiches.

The clematis is filling in and looking cheerful.
Tomorrow is Easter and we are having tacos. I know weird thing, but half the family is gone on a cruise so we decided to just do something easy and we had the bbq smoked pulled pork left over already. Yum!

Scilla Peruviana (Peruvian Lily)
These are so much better in person. So deep blue-purple. They look like they are floating above the leaves. I wish they bloomed all summer.

Semps looking rusty in the moon planter.
