Flowers...and Yard Work.

I know I've posted several times about the different blooms popping up in my yard. Here are some pictures I've taken recently that I never got around to posting.

I call this one "Peaches 'N Creme".

I have SO many different iris's it's not even funny.

I'm not sure what this is...a tulip of some sort?

I DID plant this one. My grandmother brought bluebonnets back from a trip to Frederiksburg. I planted mine and guess what...I haven't killed it, yet!

This little bloom came up on one of the fruit trees in the back yard. I thought it was so dainty and pretty.

My mom and I spent Saturday afternoon working in our yard. Trimming things back, pulling weeds, etc. Is it just me or am I missing something? I SO don't get the whole enjoyment factor from working in the yard. My grandparents LOVE it! In fact, they spend two hours per evening watering flowers in the spring and summer. Not I. I would be ok with ripping up everything and just having a lawn full of grass, no flower beds....Granted it was 95 degrees here in the lovely Texas panhandle. I know you're supposed to work in the yard first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon, but we had things to do so there we were in the heat of the day.

I'm in the market for a new summer bag. But, I can't decide if I want something bright and bold like this Kate Landry number found at

Or something more subtle like this Jessica Simpson (also found at

What do you think?
