Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Stop to smell the flowers

We went to the iris farm today and it was beautiful weather. I would have had more fun had Hot Rod not asked over and over when it was time to go. He kept hoping for a hayride or something. But, to no avail. Gadlfy rode his motorcycle over and met us at the farm. He said he needed some "wholesome" fun. I think he just needed a good reason to stock up on his condom supply. My children tend to have that effect on my single friends.

We started off well enough. Here are the kids when we first arrived.

Hot Rod and Stinkerbelle stopped to smell some irises.

Stinkerbelle already had a rock at this point.

Gadfly picked his favorite - wing commander.

Then, the kids became more fascinated by the rocks than the flowers. Not sure where Pickle learned that move unless he has sneaked into the bedroom without us knowing it.

They did enjoy smelling the cut irises.

I love this iris.

Hot Rod loved Gadfly's helmet and the reflection it made. He said it looked like the master chief in Halo.

We didn't buy any bulbs, but I'm going to place my order. We'll pick them up in August to start planting for next spring. I'll get my mom some for Mother's Day. The gift that keeps on giving.

    Great pictures--all of them. You have such adorable younguns.
    Reminds me of the day a friend dragged my family to a farm to pick blueberries, except I was the one who wanted to go home first.

    Gadfly: You should know by now that if you allowed yourself to photographed by AoM, they are going to show up SOMEWHERE! Best to be the one taking the pictures.

    AoM: Is that place in Denton? It's lovely.

    AoD: When you're right, you're right.

    Kat: It's near the intersection of 377 10-15 miles south of Denton and 407, which runs into Flower Mound and Lewisville. But if you don't get the directions from the website, you'll never find it.

    And at least AoM was good enough not to to divulge the fact that I properly identified a color as "periwinkle"

    Oh damn

    When a friend earned a Master's Degree, I asked what is her favorite color so I could crochet her gift. She replied periwinkle, and I made a little note on a card.
    When I got to the yarn shop, I had to ask the clerk for help to find the proper shade of Blue. It is better to look dumb and lost to a clerk than in front of someone I've known for years.
    The gift was received with a quiet grace.
    Gadfly, your knowledge of colors is greater than mine.

    Gadfly: You said "periwinkle"! Caught ya!

    Gadfly - you LET me take the picture and AoD is right. It could have been worse. And, I thought it was very eclectic of you to know what shade periwinkle is.

    MrsDof - thanks. I think the kids are gorgeous, personally. ;)

    Alli - we did aside from Hot Rod whining about wanting to leave.
