New Yew Review

I responded to a local Facebook offer for free yews.  We were blessed with 17 of them and are scrambling to find places for them. We're happy with the placement so far but want to avoid getting too cluttered...

Mostly Iris

 Almost every day, a different iris opens!
 Funny, but I don't remember these from other years,
 and certainly can't remember where they came from--
who their donors were.

 There is one more variety yet to open.
 I can hardly wait to see if it is a different one from these.
2020 will certainly go down as the year of the Iris here in our Indiana home.


In addition to a week's worth of grass
we came home to a few new things...

What a difference a week makes!

Shave and a Haircut

A cool morning was the perfect time
to shape this anonymous bush into a "tree".
(Is this "normal"???)

Making a Difference

A cool day after hot ones
called for a major pruning chore...
which called for a fire.
This was followed by smaller jobs
like sprucing up a couple 
of garden frogs.
We enjoyed attending to a few tasks
that make a difference
on a day when making a difference didn't involve
enduring high temperatures!

What's Blooming Today

Simple blooms, really...

These, so far--
and a few dandelions...illegal immigrants from neighbors' yards.
