Good morning. Today will be cloudy with rain, and temps in the 60's. It's a great day to stay indoors and do crafts. Maybe. The floor lamp beside my lounge chair just died. I thought maybe it was just the bulb that blew, but it's the whole electrical set up. Groan, groan, just what I need today.
I'm quite cranky just now, and I really don't need any more reasons to get crankier. A few days ago, my foot started to swell up, and it is quite painful. It's very difficult to walk when every step brings on more pain. So, I've been spending a lot of time in my chair. But, I really do need that lamp.
Tomorrow I will call my orthopedic doctor to see if I can get an appointment. Hopefully, it's nothing and will get better real soon. At least that's what I keep telling myself. I don't like going to doctors when I don't know the cause of the problem. I'm a real wuss. I don't like them prodding and poking, and I don't want to hear stuff that's not fun.
Oh yeah, I'm one of those folks who puts her head in the sand so that things will seem better. But now I've had enough pain, and I'll definitely call my doctor tomorrow.
Yesterday, I was so happy and excited. Those big beautiful orange iris buds opened, and oh my! Folks they are sooooo gorgeous! I grabbed my camera and hobbled out to the yard to take some photos. Have a lookee! (today, more of the buds have opened up)
Here are some of the other blossoms, and there are more coming.
This purple iris is beautiful, even though it is not as tall and large as the other plants.
And this huge almost black bud is going to open really soon now. As of late yesterday afternoon, it had not opened. I can't wait to see what it looks like once it opens.
I took a few more photos, but I'll save them for another post. One bulb that we planted has still not come up, but maybe there is still hope. It was a gorgeous pink iris. I guess I'll have to pick up a few more bulbs to plant in the Fall.
Well that's my news for this morning. My foot is screaming at me. It wants to be up off the floor, so I guess I'll be going back to my chair now. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
