Iris surprise

Today, I was cruising in the yard and caught a glimpse of light lavender. When I got there, this is what I found:

I ordered this iris a couple of years ago and had planted it in an out-of-the way place down the hill, semi-shaded composted area. Now I have to find out it's name!

Getting okay!

Yeaaaaa! Finally got things straight with the computer. The sales person at Office Depot sent me the info needed to connect my camera and it worked! Ed went ahead and bought a new printer. Ours was so old I couldn't locate the drivers online for the model and the scanner lid was broken. The new printer loaded up with Win7 just fine.
So now I'm back to "normal" with the computer stuff.

More computer difficulties

The new computer has windows 7 and it's not recognizing my printer or my camera. I've tried loading the software for each, but it hasn't worked. I have asked HP tech help and I'm waiting on a response. In the meantime, I won't be posting any pictures. Sorry!

New Computer

My computer gave me a problem with not connecting to the Internet, so we went over to Office Depot and bought a new one.
I was way behind the technology and this is "taking some getting used to."
But, at least I back online!

A day for Daylilies

First I had to check out the garden. Here is the thornless blackberry bush. You can see it's loaded with new berries.

We've been enjoying those for quite a while.

Walking Iris

Big Geranium blooming today
I just love the Walking Iris. Like a spider plant, it sends out a long stem that has a bloom bud which makes it hang down and touch the ground (unless in a basket) the bloom opens and if left alone will send down roots to make another plant. And in doing so, it "walks."

Red Rose

I rescued this rose from a yard nearby -- foreclosed. It has certainly rewarded me this Spring with beautiful basket-sized clumps of blooms
