      Just watching a vibrant red cardinal now, taking a drink and not caring one bit about the dead bug floating in the bird bath. Ha! Priorities.

  2. acflory says:

    Your garden is lovely, Honie. And so are the photos. Congratulations. 🙂

    1. HonieBriggs says:

      Thanks. Meeks. My garden is the one place where rejection cannot find me. There is always beauty and creatures of one kind or another waiting there to cheer me. It won’t be long until the heat of summer will overtake us, but for now it is a joy every moment of the day.

      1. acflory says:

        Mine isn’t as lovely as yours, but I feel the same way about it. Gardeners unite! 😀

    So beautiful!

    What a beautiful assortment of colors at your house, Stephanie. I love the deep purple of the Louisiana Iris.

    1. HonieBriggs says:

      Iris are one of my favorites. I have many favorites, but iris are dependable and never fail to make me catch my breath. With names like “Immortality” and “Aggressively Forward” they charm and disarm even on the grumpiest of days. The “Yeller Iris” against lavender screams, “Smile, dammit!”

      1. Allan G. Smorra says:

        And they are perfect gifts for Optometrists.
