Some more flower pictures this Friday. . .
My side yard is full of my tulips. Also my purple alliums are blooming and my iris have started to bloom. Love spring.
Just a close up of a beautiful peach and pink tulip. These mixed on their own. I didn't plant this mix. They are next to the white and magenta ones that also mixed on their own. Gorgeous!
And I love my alliums!!! Some more of the 100 plus bulbs I planted 2 years ago in the fall. These are about 3 inches in diameter. I have bigger ones that get about 6-8 inches but they aren't all the way out yet. Love them!
White tulips. So pretty against the green.
And the first of my iris just bloomed this week. A beautiful white one
I wish you could smell through the computer screen. These are "root beer" iris and have the most delicious smell of any flower! Amazing!
And what have I done since I got home Tuesday night from Omaha? Run to keep up with my kids but also bake more cookies than I could believe possible. I think I baked 15 dozen chocolate chip cookies this week. I even ran out of chocolate chips, and for a girl who buys them in bulk, that is saying something. We needed cookies this week for 2 track teams--middle school and high school, one National Honor Society meeting and one forensics team going to state. Feeding lots of kids here :) But I love it. Cookie making runs in my blood. It get it from my amazing grandma DeeDee who can whip out a batch of cookies faster than you can blink. She is my cooking inspiration, and if she had just a quarter for every cookie she has made, individually wrapped and given away, she would be a billionaire, and I am not exaggerating. Her cookies have been sent all over the globe. Her generosity knows no bounds. She inspires me. Love you DeeDee! I am carrying on your cookie making tradition :)
Have a great weekend! See you Monday--if I am not still behind and late which I just might still be so bear with me :)
