Army of Mom

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


Tiptoe through the tulips

Yeah, I'm still around. Honestly. Here's what I've been doing this week once I finished my mammoth project on Monday. I started working in the yard. We're getting a new fence with our tax refund. We decided to have a gate on both sides of the house. On one side, I had a patch of irises that needed to be dug up and moved for the gate to open.
I had been toying with the idea of expanding the side garden to cover a large bare area where grass refuses to grow. Heck, only a few weeds will even grow there.
But, it seemed like a good idea to expand the garden. I have all sorts of irises (in Army of Dad's favorite iris color - Vikings purple!) That means I have ready-made flowers for the area. I have it maybe one-third - maybe more - done. Here Little Bit is walking through it. She and Hot Rod were pretty good helpers when they weren't fighting each other today. I hope to finish the garden on Thursday or Friday morning. Ooh, that reminds me. I also have some bulbs that ArmyWife ToddlerMom sent me before she moved from Arkansas to Nebraska. I need to plant them, too. The last batch she sent me created some lovely yellow and purple irises in my front garden.

    I've been meaning to go back out to that place we all went. Do you remember what time of year that was? Late April-ish, maybe?
