Can you identify this flower? And some purple…

Hello Ladies!  I know many of you are Master Gardeners and may know this flower.  I believe it is a bulb.  It was growing in the middle of my neighbor’s lawn and I said I would ask if you knew what it was.



Anyone have a clue?

The pollen invasion is in full force here, so no progress on setting up the porch.  If I try and do it for Memorial Day, I will be doing it all again in 2 weeks.  Did that once! Sad smile

I picked some of the iris I have growing on the hill.  They are such a beautiful color!  They inspired me to pull out some  my favorite dishes, given to me by my longtime internet friend, Marigene of In the Middle of Nowhere, many years ago!  People have asked where to get them, but they are discontinued and I haveIMG_0001n’t been able to find any.












Amazing how flowers can inspire!


The purple clematis have reached the top of the lightpost, can’t wait till they all open!


Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day in case I don’t get back!


Do you know this flower?

Thanks for looking!

Where Does the Time Go?

Hello, Ladies!  I know I haven’t posted since the St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl.  Thanks to all those who participated and commented, it is always fun!

The winner of the Polka Dot Flatware is Linda from More Fun Less Laundry.  Linda, please email your address and I will get it out to you this week!


I have been keeping busy, but nothing exciting like wonderful vacations like some of you.  Just the day to day things that take so much time.

DH’s car died on the way to turn it in for a new one, (literally the alarm  light went on and smoke started pouring out, I thought it was going to explode!) and we had to get towed.  That was an experience.  Needless to say we aren’t trading in just purchasing!  Sad smile

Another Gson made his First Communion last week, so I was busy doing the take home breads and goody bags and centerpieces.


In between my first cousin passed away so there was that, and Tues is the Memorial Mass and I will be doing Irish Soda breads for the guests for the luncheon that will follow.

Spring has finally arrived, so lots of chores for me outside.  I have to wait till the pollen invasion ends, so I can’t wash the house and set up the porch yet!  Actually, it has been chilly so I can’t plant the annuals yet for fear of a frost.


But June is coming, so I am looking forward to porch sitting!

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate all of you! I hope all of you are well and enjoying this beautiful time of the year!

Talk to you soon.  I found a bargain at CTS shop I want to show you, perfect for all the red white and blue coming up!
