The Bulbs Are Planted, Now I Just Need Spring!

October 17, 2011

Gosh, have you noticed that October is already more than half over?  It can't be just my age that makes it seem as if time is flying because I hear lots of younger folks saying the same thing.  Now if Winter can fly by just as fast, that would really be nice.  I'm already looking forward to next Spring.

Yesterday, Joe and I went outside and got the Iris bulbs planted.  This time I watched to make sure he did not bury them too deep.  Most of the bulbs that were planted earlier this year are just coming up now because he and one other dwarf misread the instructions and buried them too deep into the dirt.  I scanned the pictures on the bulb packaging so you can see what we planted.  The pink is "Cherub's Smile". the orange is "Firebreather" and the blue is "Full Tide."

I'll pick up a few tulips and daffodils to round out the Spring bulbs.  Everything else can wait till next Spring when we can see how it all looks.

This morning I'm posting the last two parts of our October collab kit "Fall Festival." 

Here are your download links:

When you finish downloading, hop on over to Su's blog and pick up her parts.  This is a really fun kit and I hope you're enjoying it.

It's feeling rather brisk and Fall-like outside this morning.  The good news is that the sun is shining.  For a while, I was worried because of all the dark clouds, but they soon went on by and let the sun come out. 

Now it's time to get Tootsie her morning meds.  She's pretending to be asleep in hopes that I will forget.  But I'm wise to her game!!  Then in a little while, I think I'll make us some brunch with bacon, lettuce and tomatoes.  Mmm, mmm.  Or maybe we'll have scrambled eggs with sausage patties.  Oh, yummy!  Such a big decision for so early in the day!

I did some shopping on my way home from work this morning, so I think maybe a nap is in order for shortly after brunch.  Sounds good to me.  That's it for this morning.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Iris like their roots showing. It seems hard to believe they can grow that close to the ground, but that's the way they like it.
We just got home - too tired to blog just yet - maybe tomorrow.

The iris is my favorite flower...I can't believe yours would even bloom this late. What hardy brand. Best news from the Dr....can get into the hot tub again. Still can barely walk but improving each day. A snail could almost beat me!
