As many of you know, my computer crashed a while back and I have been concerned that I had lost everything on my hard drive.
Well thanks to my son-in-law Lorne and grandson David, they managed to salvage all of it and it is now in my new hard drive as well as 'BACKED UP"!
Thank you boys. You are miracle workers!


While my computer was broken I managed to tackle several projects. One was making a new cover for my lawn swing.
I love to take my morning coffee and Bible out here and have a study time while my pups are having their morning run. I can hear the birds and watch the squirrels playing tag in the huge evergreen by the fence. I feel so close to the Lord here. It's a good way to start a day.
My sister Bonnie gave me the lawn swing several years ago. Isn't she a blessing!
This is my newest Iris. The tag called it a "German Iris." I don't know if this is the only color, but I think it's magnificent!! And just look at the photo below taken from directly above the blossom. It looks like a lot of purple, ruffled petticoats to me.

This beauty was growing across the street from where I now live, at the house we moved into when I was ten. It was well established then. I started two plants from small branches of the mother plant. They are a rambler type so need to be tied up. (I haven't done that yet) I believe it is an old English Rose of some sort. If anyone knows, please tell me. The fragrance is intoxicating. I remember as a young girl picking handfuls of the petals and burying my nose in them until my toes curled with delight!
