Iris Farm - It Must Be Summer

 There is a wonderful iris farm nearby.  The iris have been in bloom for the past week and anyone who wants to add some lovely color to their garden is placing their order now.  The rhizomes will be ready for pick up in the fall for planting.
In the meantime, one can pick a bouquet @ $1 per stem.  Here is the lovely bouquet I picked  consisting of just ten stems.  

The water is finally warm enough for our little granddaughters to play in the lake.  

And I've been out in the kayak for a spin a time or two ... in fact, the lake is calm tonight so I'll be heading out for a paddle soon.  We have "quiet hours" on our lake... no speeding and no wakes after 7:30 at night nor before 11 a.m. in the morning.  Very peaceful.
