Thoughts on a Monday

Happy first day of the week, this last week of May. We had a morning of much needed rain and when we came back from our walk ( yes, we walk even in the rain) I checked my Irises and cut down the ones fallen over from the sheer weight of their wet selves. I especially love the light blue Iris which is very fragrant.


The Hostas also needed the moisture. I went around spreading the last of the slug and snail bait under them because the rain brought out the little beggars and they love to munch on my Hostas.  Must remember to buy more. Slug bait, that is.

                              The bouquet of blue Irises that I brought in.

DH and I finished that jigsaw puzzle we started on the 11th.  It was not impossible but it was challenging. There were 6 extra pieces included just to make things harder.

I did some rearranging on the porch with a little help moving furniture. Having only one working arm/hand definitely slows me down.

                    Brought in the very first open Peony flower also soaking wet!

                          And a little bunch of the pink Bonica rose.



I had DH move this "bulletin board" into the sunroom. I had fun arranging things both on and in front of it. To the left of the photo you get a glimpse of my desk/crafting area.




That's what's happening in my little world today. Tomorrow the sunshine will hopefully be back and I'll see how many weeds I can pull. I tried using a hoe but it doesn't work one-handed.

Thanks for visiting. Have a happy week.

  1. All these pictures are so pretty. I love the light blue Iris. I don't think there is a blue Iris anywhere in my yard. I intend to find one. That puzzle is unbelievable! Are you going to leave it together?

  2. You poor thing, working with just the one hand! Ack! Be careful not to wiggle your fingers too much. I think I told you that I did and then I had to have surgery to stabilize my wrist and it all took so long.
    Everything here is pretty today! I love those iris!

    1. I try not to use my hand/fingers too much but it's hard not to. I would really hate to have to have surgery yet!

  3. I love the irises and the birdhouse made of broken pieces of china? Nice of your hubby to help you with your creative endeavors. :)

  4. That rearranged porch is a welcome sight. Would love to sit in that chair all day and gaze.
