Patience . . .

Remind me . . . next spring . . .
when I begin to fret about
this plant and that plant not returning, not popping up like perrenials do.
Remind me . . . they will appear in their own time . . .


Momma's Iris . . . finally opening up . . .
In Their Own Time . . .

Love the Mother's Day hanging plant above that my daughter gave me and . . .
Hummingbirds will be happy to see that Fushia . . . sip, sip . . .


Things are beginning to fill in, leaf out . . .
I do love this time of the year . . .

Oakland caught a fish!
Her great granny, GG Carole, has a home on the lake
and Oakland's momma caught this picture . . .
Great catch Little Miss Adorable!

Memorial Day . . .
Give honor and respect to those who have served for our freedom . . .
Fly our flag, attend a Memorial Day service, gather with friends and family . . .
Give Pause . . .
Remember

Love ~
Lynne

"We must never forget that freedom is never free.
It is the most costly thing in the world.
Freedom is never paid in lump sum.
Installments come due in every generation.
All any of us can do is offer the generations that follow a chance for freedom.
President Ronald W. Reagan

Field of Flags is from the Hampton, Iowa Cemetary
Picture was taken by my high school classmate friend Carol.
I will get to see and be with her and other classmates
in a few weeks . . .
when we celebrate our 60th Hampton High School Class Reunion

Hello, cute shot of Oakland with her fish. That is cool. I love your pretty Irises. I think a critter got to mine, I did not see them bloom this year. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

Yes, everything seems to pop up in its own good time.

Oh I love your property Lynne...so woodsy...like a mini-forest...just the way I like it!
Your Moms Iris knew that you were looking for them...and they showed up to caress you.
Have a lovely evening...and that great grand is just too darn cute with her fish 💕
Cheers!
Linda :o)

i suppose it's because of the unusually mild winter we had, but i have more of those iris blooms this year than in at least the last five years. i was beginning to think i'd never have any/many blooms again, and this year i have more than 2 dozen. i think the last year i had more than that or anywhere near that was 2008, '09 or '10. --suz in NE ohio

Our flowers are taking their own sweet time this year, too. I think it will make that long awaited burst of color even better. Great fish...great smile! ;)

Oakland is a cutie with her fish. The flowers here seem ahead of time, except some of them are no-shows. All of my Irises (including the ones you shared--thank you!) are up and flourishing, but they aren't blooming. Too much shade, too much rain? Hopefully, they'll bloom next year, but they all came back. All your plants look so healthy and full. Have a wonderful, blessed Memorial Day weekend!

Your mother's Iris is just beautiful. There is a lesson in nature about "in its own time"... apparently we need that lesson over and over in life. ;) Such a beautiful yard! Oakland is too cute with her catch! And, yes... remember. blessings ~ tanna

Your iris is beautiful. My only Iris got heavy with four blooms and tipped, so it is now cut and in the house. Well, I can enjoy it a little more there.

I love everything in this post. Your sweet girl, your garden, the Memorial Day reminder. Lovely.

I hope you have a beautiful holiday weekend.

OK. I'll try to remind you to be patient next spring... *smile*

Oakland is a doll, and she looks pretty happy with her catch!

Yes. We should take a moment to reflect and give thanks for the sacrifices that have ensured the freedoms that we enjoy.

In a town, not far from here, a soldier's remains were brought home today. That young man gave his life in Pearl Harbor many years ago, and now his family can finally lay him to rest.

Wishing you a happy Memorial Day weekend.
