Finally..........! ! !

It was a celebration for me yesterday  (it doesn't take much).  My pink iris opened for the first time. 
I showed it to my lawn guy who has been avoiding it with the weed eater.  And my dear neighbor was also a guest at the celebration.  I've been trying to get one for 5 or 6 years.  When it opened I dedicated the first bloom to my little great granddaughter, Emerson.  Just seemed like a great idea. 
Hope you're having a beautiful day,

June........such a lovely month.....

Maybe it's because it's my birth month and also one of my daughters.  Maybe it's because everything is green and it rains a lot and each time seems to make the earth new.  Or maybe it's because the flowers and trees have been waiting all winter to burst open in all their glory.  Whatever it is, it's a wonderful month.  Hope you have a magical June.

Glorious spring and new roof..........

We're already 3/4 of the way through May and it's just beautiful here.  Isn't this a beautiful time of the year?  The lilacs, apple trees, forsythias, plums, almonds are blooming and the bees are mad with joy.  The trees are buzzing when I walk under them.

For the first time since we moved here 30 years ago I'm getting a new roof.  I think the roofer said there are 5 layers  of roofing.  Considering the fact that this house was built in 1900, I'm not surprised.  Leonard would be so happy.  He tried for years to get the insurance company to pay for it and did patching and re-roofing himself.  What it finally took was to ask them to assign a new adjuster?!

Puck ran from the front door to the back window worried about it this morning, he's finally settled down after I took him outside to see that the people weren't murderers and all the equipment in "his" yard.

Hope life is being good for you.          Blessings, Diane

New Do.

He could care less.  But the new cut will help keep him cooler in the summer and he is so soft.  Since he was 10 years old when I got him at the shelter in December, I will never know his history.  I have tried, it seems that I should be allowed to know.  As it is, we have to teach each other and we're doing very well at it.  I still miss Rascal with all my heart but my heart seems to have expanded to hold so much love for this mellow, kind, dear boy.                   Diane

Come into my parlor......................

Just a little shot of my bathroom as you come in the door.  I had it all white for a long time and felt the need of color and I really like the color.  I put the shelf up mostly to hold the beautiful bottle Cathy gave me for Christmas.  I hope you have a wonderful day.       Diane

April in Wyoming (and Montana)

So much for the the cheerful previous post.  April 2nd was a sunny, chilly day but around 4:15 pm I looked out the window and could hardly see across the street.  Snowing, blowing, howling into he night.  I have to say that it was kind of interesting.  It's been many years that we had a full fledged old fashioned Wyoming blizzard.  It's over now and melting, just like nothing happened.  Hope you all had a wonderful Easter.             Diane
