Swimming I did go, this morning; although, I only swam about 2/3 of the time normally devoted to the activity. No sense overdoing it since I had not swum since 4/13/2012.
Pulling the weeds that got a head start on me will take some catching-up time. I picked one pint of strawberries night-before-last and another last night; so, Hunky Husband would be feasting - if he would remember that they are in the refrigerator, on his tray. He's pretty tired, so I shan't give him grief over his forgetting them.
The irises have bloomed bountifully. I took a couple of stems into the client shelter and a bouquet into the office. Everyone seemed to enjoy them.
I'll shut up now and post photos of our yard. Most of the photos are of irises - and they speak for themselves.
The irises (above photo) are in our yard, but they crept over from the neighbor's yard. The window to the right in the photo is the neighbor's basement window. One of these days, I'll probably replace the concrete blocks with blocks that are better looking. No sense using good blocks until I'm sure that they are where I want them. (After five or ten years, they are probably well placed.)
These two irises (above photo) came from WalMart. The sage was dug up, last fall, from the large bunch of sage that is beside our back steps (photo below). This is the sage clump that Bogie was kind enough to identify for me. I had thought/misremembered that it was basil of some sort!
Ooooh! I nearly forgot a couple of photos that show evidence of good things to come. The photo on the left (below) shows bountiful blooms on our two dwarf pyracantha while the photo on the right shows fruit to come on our Northstar cherry tree. With any luck, the berries on our pyracantha will, this year, rival those of Bogie's pyracantha last year (see Firethorn).
If you care to know what Hunky Husband and I have been up to since 4/13/2012, I've posted on Volunteer Endeavors.
