"Gary, why do you live in a purple house?"



"Because the people who owned it before us wanted it to match their purple iris. The first one popped out yesterday!"

Nice! Our tulips are done, as are the daffodils. We're well into lilac season here, but we don't have any irises. I'll have to plant some.

ours are mighty successful--I wish I understood how I kill some plants and others thrive in my care

Ever hear of a kid's book called Mr. Pine's Purple House (it's cute, it's about a guy who moves into a suburb where all the houses are the same).

I kinda' wondered about the purple house. But, y'all seem kinda free, arty and eccentric...so, it fit y'all!

BOO-T-Full flower(s). The wind whips so much around here I finally quit. It blows the blooms right off the stem.

Told DH, I want landscaping...but the low/self maintenance kind ;-D
