The sweetness of nature

Mom and I planted candy lilies this year. Here is the first bloom on my plant.



Matthew just loves these little cars I saved off the curb. I bet he doesn't mind I'm a dumpster diver. In fact, I know he doesn't because he was excited when I saved his bike off the curb!

Scamp always has to be in on the action.

Color and blooms.

And the most exciting miracle of all. I planted some "oriental" irises at the end of May. Correction: transplanted some. I have had the worst time getting them to take. When I weeded today I found 3 sprouts coming up! I'm hoping some of the rest of them will decide to take off as well.

That grin on Matthew's face says it all. (Good work, mommy!) And what glorious flowers your work produced... I envy the space for life you all enjoy in KS.

From all the evidence I see, you are just plain good at encouraging flora and fauna and small boys to live and grow.
