Army of Mom

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

I love my yard in the spring. The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and sporting events begin to be more comfortable weather-wise. This lovely iris came to me a few years ago as a bulb from ArmyWife ToddlerMom. Yesterday, I was excited to get my mail and she sent me some more bulbs. Now, I have to find where I want to put them. I had Army of Dad cut down this ugly shrub thing that was in one garden in the back yard, so that might be the perfect place. I just really like these irises because they are so different from the rest in my yard. My other irises are solid colors of mostly white, lavendar and purple. So, this adds a new twist on one of my favorite (low-maintenance) flowers to grow. Now, I just wish I could get all my work done, so I can go play in the yard. I have bulbs to plant. Thanks AWTM!

    Now, I have about seven or eight blooms from the irises ... they are gorgeous. Many many thanks. I'm going to try to get out in the back yard and plant the new bulbs this weekend. I'll let you know what these turn out like. :)
