The blue Iris from Lowe's has bloomed again this year. The flowers and trees are growing with lush greens and colors in all of this rain.
Remember last year when we went on a quest to find Aunt Minnie? Frank and Cloody were moving and they gave me this yellow Iris and so its name is dubbed Frank .

Now this is dubbed Cloody in PinkI am sad to say the Iris I begged from the lady that helped us find Aunt Minnie was dubbed "Aunt Minnie " the white Iris did not bloom yet if at all.

In their fright the woman bowed down with their faces to the ground. but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead ? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'

Then they remembered his words.

Luke 24: 5--8

Three out of five Hostas are up and look happy.
Had to take a little break and make The Bennie a cake.

I am so happy to see that my Mildred Blackberry Lilies are up,

they will bloom when it gets warmer.

It looks like I will have roses before the Peonies bloom.
The storm missed us last night but it is cool and going to rain this morning.

This is what our sky looked like after the whirling tornado funnels passed us over.

It didn't touch down but we were sure hunkered down the wind and some hail , then we were given the all clear and we went out on the porch and saw this spectacular show of lightning.We are to have storms for next 7 days

Do you know why Lions
and our sweet little old cat like the catnip plant?It excites them because it contains a chemical that resembles an excretion of the dominant females urine.

And I planted it for our cat ever year, just about all cat toys have it in them.

" We know that all things work together for good to them that love God , to them who are the called according to his purpose".
