I know I've been missing ... but thought I would try to get back into the swing of things and join you all here.
Here's a post from back in 2013 ...

Welcome June !!! My Birthday MONTH ...Let the Celebrations Begin
My month long celebration of my birthday is off to a GREAT start.
I won a $50 gift card to a site that sells ORGANIC body and home products!!!!!! Took me all of 5 minutes to spend every penny of it and then some :)
I also received a $5 coupon from my favorite online herb shop...
Check them out if you're into herbs.
The gardens are coming along slowly.... I still have lots to get into the ground because of all the rain. What is in the ground is growing by leaps and bounds!!!!!
I can't keep up with the Herbs! I have a new decorating theme going on...brown paper bags hanging everywhere :) I don't think the Hubs is as appreciative as I am. But the house does smell nice.
My Iris are all fading now..but Oh how beautiful they were this year.
This bed really needs thinned out....but I love how it looks like a purple river so I keep putting it off. Maybe I'll thin it a tiny bit this summer and start a new bed somewhere else.
The potted succulents are crazy full too. I'm thinking this swan needs to find a mate to share her bounty with ♥
I bought a bag of assorted Iris at the flea market last year and I'm getting some beauties out of it. I have never had a white Iris before and I love this one. Can't wait til it multiplies !!! I'll share some of the other colors in a later post.
The basement purge is coming along! This will be the last weekend we have the dumpster and it will be full when it goes away on Monday :)
It's hard to turn loose of some of the things .... but there is only so much time and not enough room for all of the projects.
And here is another of the inspiration art cards I received in my deck
from Kara Rogers
It must have been a later Spring that year because the Iris are long gone this year and the summer perennials have started to bloom. The flower beds are no where near as pretty as they were that year. Mother Nature has been hard on them the years following 2013 .
