Friday Fotos - Tall Tulips As the flowers (and weeds) start to pop up all over the place after about five inches of rain this past week, I thought I would say goodbye to my last tulip as it drops its petals to make room for my iris collection.  A little bit of sunshine today, and the grass grew t...
Even Bulldogs are Avoiding The Rain! The rain is just pouring down--I was in New Haven today at the train station and spotted this bulldog looking out the back of the Yale Shuttle . . .

Check Out Your Gardens before the Flowers Slip By! I was out refilling my hummingbird feeders this evening when I noticed that one of my Bearded Iris plants had started to get buds.  I decided I had better check on my Miniature Iris.  Amazingly, they not only had buds, but blooms! As we work so b...
