flags

Photobucket

The garden is almost "in".
This past weekend, the corn and squash were planted, now all that remains are the beans. We have been spending a lot of time in the garden. The bearded irises...or flags..were waving to me all the while.

The blossoms are large this year, most all of them are larger than my palm.

Their beards are full..

The signals, defined.

Across the street, this years fawn walks up the hill with her mother.

Tomorrow, I will give a spinning demonstration to the Womens Ag group at the Hatton Farm. It should be a fun day! I've been spending part of the afternoon getting ready, brushing up on my skills and dressing the distaff.

What a wonder full look at the beards of the iris. I always want to touch this part of the iris they are so soft. Seeing that little fawn makes me hope that you have your greens covered. Ha... Have fun giving your demonstration.

Lovely flowers!
I'm not so patiently waiting for the fawns to be born in my neck of the woods...I can't wait to see them, thanks for sharing your picture...my fawn "fix" for the day. :-D
Good luck with the demo and I hope you have a great time.

Lovely Irises!! I have only one blooming this year after moving things around last fall.

If we would just have a warmish day, the peonies would pop. But I prefer these cooler days anyway.

Enjoy the demo!
