Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Is it Really Spring?

I was thinking how pretty these iris are. My sister gave me these to plant last year and they are growing so well. Aren't they pretty?  I want more  flowers  around the Blue Sky Farm. Now that the Garden Shed is 99% finished ( trim and decorating to be complete this next week after our frost danger is gone) I am so anxious to get  out there and finish the project.  I want to plant lots of color spots and baskets and pots.
Yes I said frost danger. Last night was cold and I covered the tomato plants  and will do so again tonight. Hoping that they will be okay. We have a very short growing season here in Klamath Falls  and I probably planted them too soon.. but I got the planting bug. Thinking it was  Spring when we had 80 degree weather last week.. once the threat of frost is gone usually  we will be safe until maybe mid September.
Yesterday we had a horrific thunderstorm with  loud thunder, lightening wind rain and even big hail stones. It is possible so the forecast reports for a light snow tonight..So I am hoping these pretty Iris will be as pretty by end of the week when sunshine will warm them again.
I have been busy inside, sorting through magazines for decorating ideas and garden tips for a pretty summer garden.
Thanks for stopping by do come back and see what I decide to do around the garden shed.
I hope its nice and sunny where you live.. I always feel so much better when its a nice sunny warm day, Don't you?

Your flowers are beautiful. I dug up some "greenery" out of the beds from a deceased friend and planted "Ray's garden" in my back yard. They were dark purple like yours but the blooms didn't last long at all. I was thankful so see them for a day or two though.

They are gorgeous! I am weeding, and caring for my indoor plants right now. Oh, and reading our mystery pick-it's a great book!
