Good morning. It's a beautiful sunny, breezy day, but we my have a few clouds and a drop or two of precipitation This whole upcoming week is supposed to be in the 70's. Next week, the 80's are supposed to move in along with the start of summer. Can you believe it? Spring is almost over.
It's been quiet around here, and we finally got some of that rain that has been coming our way all week. The weather man says that we are officially in drought. SIL Eddie came by to put the new supports around my peony plants. Hopefully, this will help the blooms to last a bit longer. Usually, they are so heavy that they fall down to the ground.
Here are photos of buds that are opening. As you can see, they are as big as saucers. The dark rose colored bud is about three inches across. You an imagine how big they will be when they are opened all the way.
I also took a photo of one of the iris plants so that you could see how tall they grow. The fence in the background is six feet tall.
In the afternoon, I did a bit of grocery shopping, and picked up a few more pretty things for my daughter Laura Jean. This week I need to mail off some boxes. Clothes for Laura Jean, and birthday gifts for my son Gary Jr. According to my emails (order recipts), it seems that Pogo has been doing a bit of shopping too. He's a good doggie, my little Pogo.
By evening, I was really tired and fell asleep shortly after our supper. Today is looking to be a rather quiet day. It's nice out, so I think I'll take Pogo out for a walk around the yard for a while. We'll probably both need naps after that. haha.
Well, that's my news for today. So, till tomorrow. Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
