What a beautiful week this has been weather wise! Yesterday was my Grandmothers birthday! She is 95 years young. I had planned to post her beautiful picture today but forgot to upload it this morning before I left for work. She is so amazing. She still lives in her own house, has a vegetable and flower garden, and goes to her missionary meetings every Wednesday and church every Sunday. She has been such a positive influence in my life. She's not afraid of doing new things, meeting new people, and looks for the silver lining in any of the dark clouds that come her way.
I had my grandma, mother in law, sister and her children down for lunch on Sunday for Mothers Day. We had a great time just hanging out together and watching the kids swim in the pool. It's a little chilly still but the kids insisted it was just right. Then we went down to the lake and watched my DS ride his "new to him" jet ski. My Grandma was so excited watching him and said if she was a little younger she would ride it! Speaking of Mothers Day, my dear husband and son bought me a small tiller. I was so excited! My old one died several weeks ago and was too old to have it repaired.
My Irises are blooming! They are my favorite flowers because they are so bold and showy. I have several different colors in my flower garden, which incidentally I worked on all week-end. I planted several day lillies, tiger lillies, and cala lillies along with a butterfly bush in a deep purple. I also transplated some of my hollyhocks and lambs ears. I also planted some coleus in the most beautiful copper color. They will look great in the fall with the mums.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed day!
