|Kathy Jo, were they the old fashioned white ones with a barely blue tint to them? I probably refered to them as my homestead iris. If they are, I know now what their real name is.
Yes, Neil, I guess a broken jaw and missing teeth are minor by comparison! I don't think I want to stand too close to you in a lightning storm. Your rich tapestry of life is a little much.
This evening we have been watching a pair of Chinese pheasants wandering through the pasture and into the flower bed. We see them nearly every day. Mr P is a polygamist, he has at least 2 wives, but usually we only see him with one at a time. Soon we should be seeing some babies. Hopefully their eggs were well covered when we had snow last night.
Yep, our world was white this morning but turned green again about mid day. It's the latest snowfall I can remember. I read in the paper that April was the wetest on record since 1955, and also the coldest. And May has already had a record rainfall, resulting in flood warnings for the Powder River that runs right through town. Sheesh, what a year we are having!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
