Well the last two days here it has been raining.  The sun has been trying to pop out since lunch time.  Yes, it is finally shining through my window.  Love it.  Well guess what I noticed in my flower bed.  About 6 inch shoots of iris all over my front flower bed.  Are they confused, we have had a very cold winter here, we had snow just a couple of weeks ago, which I thought would never leave.  My husband fell down three times that week.  And now it looks like a sign of spring, I can't wait to get back in my flower beds.  I love to play in my flower beds, visit the garden centers.  Every year I say I am not going to plant much.  LOL.  I go and pick out some new plants and the ones that always do so well.  I will plant and move around things for weeks.  And then I drive by another plant place, well I got to stop by and at least look.  I arrive home with my  van loaded.  I am a lost cause when it comes to flowers.  Yes, I am longing for spring when I can plant, sit on my benches and look at my primitive magazines, a time well spent just enjoying nature.  Vicky
