Happy Mother's Day

I want to wish all the mommys a very Happy Mothers Day. Yesterday I was surprised with a bouquet of 2 dozen roses DELIVERED! Anyone who knows Larry Denzil, knows he does not send flowers. He has never sent me flowers. On a rare few occassions he has bought me flowers and delivered them himself. Most of that occurred during our dating years. Anyways, I wanted to share my beautiful bouquet from Proflowers.

As you all know, we have been working very hard in our yard. We have our garden up, with the exception of a few plants the kids have brought from school. Xander has brought home about 5 plants and for FHE we ate cantaloupe and the kids planted all those seeds which have sprouted. Anyways, when we moved here, our yard was bare with the exception of a lonely hibiscis tree. Over the last 2 years, we have planted fruit trees and made a flower bed in the front yard. Many of my plants in the front, were given to me by my mom, from her garden. I wanted to share my

Japanese Iris that has finally bloomed. The picture truly does not do it justice. It is the most vibrant deep purple I have ever seen in nature.

Another plant I am very proud of is my Japanese Maple tree. Larry Denzil bought this for me last summer and we put it in a nice pot in the front yard. It is such a beautiful green and is just a very beautiful tree.
I know this is a boring post, but I am very proud of my plants and flowers. I did get to attend a pampered chef party last night. I love that pampered chef and I wish I would have known about them 12 years ago. You can have a Pampered Chef bridal shower. How Awesome is that?!?

I'm really impressed you can get things to grow with all the wind. I've been blaming all of our dead plants on the wind (and cold) but maybe I'm just bad at it. Your iris is beautiful. Good job.
