Yellow and Blue Dwarf Iris

It rained a bit here today. We need it as everything is getting crispy like it was July.  I took this picture of the dwarf iris with the girls name that I cannot remember.  It looked so pretty with the rain drops on them.  More Straight Out of The Camera photos can be found on this Sunday meme.  See you there.

That is a gorgeous iris. I have a purple one blooming right now that smells just like grape Koolaid. It makes your mouth water.

Hi Valerie, When I saw the title of your blog I immediately thought 'Gardening in Iraq'. Also a sandbox but one of a different nature. Love the name of your blog. Gardening in sand is difficult. I had sand in NC and had a hard time so I can understand it. Sounds like you start off right though with the raised beds.

I've seen a lot of irises but never one like this dwarf iris. It is incredible. So delicate and perfect with those soft colors. If you find the name I'd love to know it.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
