Random 5 Friday - 06/07/2013


1.  I love my purple irises and have been wanting some yellow ones for awhile. My "neighbor" at the Farmer's Market had some lovely, fragrant yellow iris plants for Mother's Day so I bought myself some.

2.  We are off to The City today for a major, scheduled car maintenance. We have to be there at 8 AM so I had Bob cat get me up at 4:15.

3.  Actually, Bob cat gets us up around 4:15 EVERY morning. (sigh)

4.   It's been over a week since I have had time to do a blog post and I'm behind in my blog reading too. I hope to get caught up with everyone in the next few days.

5.  Oh yeah, we became grandparents last week!! Jerry's son and his girlfriend had a lovely little girl, JayCee Bella, on May 29th. Jerry made a quick trip up to Flagstaff to meet her and we will both be going in a couple of weeks. The only pictures I have so far are blurry cell phone shots but will be taking lots and lots when we go up. You have been warned!! :)

JayCee Bella that is a catchy name, I love baby photos. 4H15 was my Dad's getting up time, we didn't live on a farm, he loved the quiet and the sun. The City must be a long way away.

Beautiful iris! I think my Mom will separate out some iris corms for me this fall when she digs up hers. She has dark purple and yellow ones.

Visiting from R5F.

Awww, congratulations!

I did a major car thing last Friday. Not fun. For me or my finances. And I still need two new front tires. Hopefully that'll come next month.

Funny, all around us purple irises are blooming, yet I'm still waiting for mine but I looked out the window and saw yellow ones blooming...I don't remember having any yellow irises!

Congrats on your new grandbaby. Can't wait to see her! :)

Welcome to the world, JayCee Bella! I love bearded iris and can't grow them here. I think I'm going to take a break from cyperspace -- I seem to spend too much time with blogs and FB. I'm wondering what the world is like without them! :D But, I so enjoy visiting with everyone! Have a lovely weekend.

Congratulations on Jaycee Bella! I love bearded iris, I only have the deep purple ones, and would like to get more colors some year!

Susan said...

Bring on the baby pics! I wake up between 4-4:30 every morning, seven days a week. Even without canine or feline help.

You need a cat with a different time zone adjustment.

Congratulations on the grandchild! That's a lovely name. :-)

Good luck on the car maintenance. I dread things like that.

The yellow iris is so lovely!

Happy Friday!

Nancy Claeys said...

How nice for you -- I just love babies! Can't wait to see photos.

Lovely iris -- I have one very similar to that one.

Ida said...

Very pretty Iris. I have a few but don't have a yellow one (yet.)
Congrats on the new baby, it will be fun to see photos.

Awww, congratulations!!! How exciting to have a new member of the family.

Getting up at 4:15 every morning?! Yikes! And here I thought 5:45 was early! haha.

Sandy said...

I love and have purple iris too, bet yellow mixed in with them would be really pretty. I'm in a no color period at the moment. Iris done and the Lilly's haven't started yet...so just green currently. Must be the day, you're the 3rd person I've chatted with today who's a new grandparent. Hope all goes well, one mentioned without people being married things can be tenuous for grandparents. Looking forward to some cute pictures.
Sandy for Friday 5

Funny....I was just visiting the iris in my youngest sister's garden and she commented that she's "not much of a yellow person," so she got rid of some of the yellow flowers. Now she has too many purple ones.

A Quiet Corner said...

Congrats on being a grandma!!! My Iris' are white...big, beautiful and loaded with blooms! My son is giving me some of his purples this Fall which should be awesome...:)JP

Candy, lovely flowers. Congratulations on the baby! And 4.15 is a very early start indeed! I hate getting up in the dark.

Congrats! It's great being grandparents.

Congratulations on becoming grandparents! I understand behind. I'm so far behind with all the kidding around here that I'll never be caught up. Really.
