More of the Same: Watching and Waiting

I am beginning to sound like a broken record: No sun this morning. More rain on the way. We have plants waiting in wings to be planted and the garden will be late. Worse off are our farmer friends out east who have not yet been able to plant their 100 day corn. They are running out of time for the corn crop. Yet with all the rain, the country is as green as the Irish countryside. Trees are still budding out, slowed down by the cold temperatures and I think the May flowers are behind schedule too. 

Today's post will be short as we have over night company coming. So I will leave you to enjoy Monday's Mosaics. Be sure to join Judith at Lavender cottage for more.

First mosaic: A twist on the classic pretty little girl picking dandilions: our little Lily waiting for her turn to ride Pop.




And finally, the wait is over. The iris have begun to bloom.



A quick shot with the iPad. A  quick post from the iPad. I will be back later in the week when life has slowed down a bit.

On this Memorial Day take a moment to say a prayer for our men and women in uniform and for those who gave their lives to uphold freedom.  Actually, I know that you don't need reminding. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.

  5. Lily is so tiny riding Pop, a sweet keepsake for when she's older. Enjoy your irises as they open and your company.
    Have a happy Memorial Day Ann, thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  8. Beautiful pictures, Ann!! Lily is precious and your Iris is so pretty! I'll be back in a few days to visit more; we're at the beach and my visiting is very limited at the moment. :) Take care and I hope you get fair weather soon, my friend.

    Hugs,

  9. I do hope you dry out enough to get some gardening done. I'd be going nuts, too, if I couldn't get out and dig. Hang in there. :o)

  10. We have family in Boulder County... So I've heard that the State is a little wetter and gray er than usual. Your Iris is beautiful... I really love this flower and it is one of the many I never see here in Florida. That collage with your granddaughter is adorable.

  11. Your weather is starting to sound like Ireland with all that rain. We've had quite a chilly May and we've had more rain than any other month this year so far. Hoping June will be a bit brighter.

  13. Well I hope your spring weather has improved by now! When we have a rainy spring, I keep telling myself how much I'll appreciate all that rain later in the summer. But it's hard when you can't your things planted. Hang in there!
