The light is OFF!!!

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I keep my front porch light on 24 hours a day during income tax season so that my clients can pick up or drop off their stuff without having to do it in the dark.

Today is the wonderful day that the light goes off, signifying that tax season is officially over!!!!

So, since I had a free day, I decided that it was time to work in the much neglected yard!!! I spent 6 hours today, weeding, spraying, mowing, pulling, sawing, planting etc, and even though I am bone tired, it was wonderful to get so much done in one day.

Before I started this morning, I made a quick trip to the hardware store to pick up a few missing supplies and found this wonderful lantern on a clearance table. I think that it is a fun way to add a bit of color to my backyard. I also bought a new bird feeder....of course the cat thinks that it is just a smorgasbord for him!!

On of the flowers that is currently blooming is this beautiful Iris. I traded Irises with my friend, Kris, a few years ago and I think of her everytime I see it's beautiful blooms.


As I was finishing up by making a trip to toss some uprooted plants, I noticed a tree hanging over the fence from my neighbor's house that has these wonderful flower groupings.......

So, not much quilting today.....that is scheduled for tomorrow!!!!
