Today, I cleaned out the Iris bed.
It was a mess!
A big mess!
I pulled out all the leaves and stuff and stood back and looked.
It looks a lot better. A little too crowded, but a lot better.
I have some babies now to transplant.
And a mess to clean up. Any volunteers?
I guess I need to get the rake and transport this mess to the burn pile.
And here is a picture of our first yellow flowers.
Aren't they pretty? Seems we never have any trouble growing the dandelions! But I do think they are pretty in their own way. I miss the small hands holding up a fist full of dandelions and violets for me to put in a little glass of water, and the pretty little smile on their faces.
Oh, the simple joys that children give their mothers.
Our house and yard are not like what you see in the pages of Better Homes and Gardens. But, I am happy with what I have. I am happy for our flowers and for the roof over our head. I am even happy for the yellow dandelions now flourishing in our yard, for they are a sign of renewed life and spring after a long hard winter.
Happy Spring! Enjoy the little blessings God has given us.
