.... still around.......

..... moving out (well, not really 'out', but out of the main floor and into the basement..it should be interesting) .... and getting ready for the big renovation...  packing boxes and moving furniture (my body sure feels it today) and searching for the perfect tiles, trying to choose wall colours, cabinets, contertops,  etc....  etc..... takes a lot of time and effort ......

We'll be cooking on the BBQ on good days... and the rest? ...mivrowave...toaster, kettle, electric frying pan and maybe a little toaster oven...if I can find it....now where did I put that thing?  It's a tiny one I bought at a garage sale for $5 one year.  I meant to use it to cook my polymer clay dolls....but, hardly made any and toasted them in my regular oven when I did....tsk, tsk...yeh, yeh...I know..... toxic fumes...... but, I think I only did two or three things in there....

While I was busy and ignoring my yard.... ...this popped up in the driest portion of garden in the whole place ... the other iris are suffering.  I think because we have been having so much rain... they just aren't  doing anything.... even fancy Beverly Sills ... who last year was sooo beeyoootiful.... has no buds .... bummer.

But, I love this pinkish very long legged one....a corm from a neighbour I planted last year.... hahahha.... that sounds funny....as if I planted the neighbour.....but you know what I mean......


Au naturel........



....and..... with a white board behind....

We're on the opposite end of things. Bone dry and everything is brown or yellow.
