Memorial Day weekend, we where on our way to northern Iowa, and had stopped over near the WI/IA border so we could visit Wyalusing State park. After that visit, we went and spent a few days at my parents. While there, we were able to spend a little bit of time visiting with my Grandpa. He is 96 years old (almost 97). I thought this photo of my boys and I with him turned out pretty good.
WI Museum of Quilts &Fiber Arts today for them to sell in their gift shop.
The last week of school saw Joel doing a World Showcase for his class. It was similar to a science fair except each group of kids did a display on a specific country. Joel's team did Greece.
Here's a bloom that just opened up recently .. It's an iris that came from our house in Iowa .. and before that it was an iris from my sister's yard. :) Isn't it wonderful when flowers can bring back memories :)
Not sure what this plant is either .. we have several of them. The picture really doesn't do it justice. The leaves are a deep burgandy red, and the flowers are white puffs... interesting!
I purchased a few flowers at Walmart to plant in the yard and in pots, etc. Below is one that went into the ground into a hole.
A flowering potentilla bush.
Right in the front of our yard is a single rose bush. Here is a picture of the buds.
Joel coming home on the last day of school.
I decided to use an old roasting pan that I had and put some of the purchased flowers in it. Thought it turned out ok. I put holes in the lid, then put the lid in the base and planted in the lid. What do you think?
Rob and I drove to Sheboygan last weekend. Saw a couple of birds. Here's a sparrow of some sort.
My best guess is
Some Gulls. Not sure what type of gull.
This beautiful sunset taken from our driveway.
And finally - the iris that I transplanted from the side yard to the front yard.
Beautiful color, don't you think?
A better shot of the roaster planter and the flowers in it.
And that's about it for now! :)
