04/24/10 - White Ruffles
I thought for sure I was posting a picture of a pink Bearded Iris today, and then I changed my mind:-) This flower is blooming in my neighbor's yard. As a matter of fact, I visited 6 different neighbors in the past 2 days taking pictures of what's blooming in their yards. I haven't had good luck with Iris bulbs in my yard. The leaves grow, but the flowers don't bloom:-( As with most things in my yard, probably too much shade and not enough sun. At any point, with the cloudy conditions yesterday, the white of this Iris seemed to come out nicely after adjusting the contrast and color just a tad.
I just can't tell you how glad I am that it's the weekend. I've been running on empty this week, having trouble concentrating on my work, and just ready to be with the kids. Dad continues to get stronger in rehab and is walking more and more. He wants to come home ASAP. We've had to throw logic at him a few times now to get him to be a bit more patient. Don't blame him about wanting to go home, but want to make sure that he's really ready.
Hope you all have a super weekend!
