Muddy May

purple iris, originally uploaded by coltpixy.

It has rained here almost every day for weeks on end. Yes it is good for the flowers, not so much for construction. We have been trying to build a wheel chair ramp and tomorrow is the last day to get it finished.

The day after that my mother-in-law arrives for a vacation. She has apparently become wheel chair bound. Hopefully it will not rain every day they are here because they love to get out and soak up the local flavor.

Just wanted to let you know I am still alive and kicking even though I have not been blogging here much and my shop is on vacation. Just trying to make sure everything here is just right for company.


  1. That's a GORGEOUS iris, what lovely deep color! *sigh*

  2. Beautiful picture.

    I hope you get the ramp finished & have a good visit with your MIL. We miss you!

  3. Thank you! Bearded irises are my favorite flower and I have almost every color of them.

    We did finish the ramp in time. Got soaked but we did it. My in-laws are leaving in the morning. I miss everyone and it seems like I have not been around for a year but their visit seemed really short. I know that doesn't make sense but it is true. We had a really nice visit this year and I can't believe it is almost over already.


Thank you for taking time to reply. I really appreciate it.
