Love it! I can just picture every scenario. Lots of new sprouts! I need to come see. They will love this rain...

14 new sprouts!! That's awesome! Congratulations!! Granny, can you come visit our garden, too?!

This post is so funny. I can picture each and every one of these events. I love with how dainty all of Iris' preferences are. Of course she loves pink! That makes her all the more adorable!

You & me both on the packing up of the winter wardrobes! Just when I thought it was safe!! Not that I'm complaining about the wonderful weather we had, I just didn't think I'd have to dip into it so soon! Very entertaining post!
