This morning I was out and about in the garden
Sadly, not weeding or planting
But rather picking
For the iris is in full bloom!
A basket brought into the house
To fill vases with this noble flower
And after a good clean of the house,
And ironing of the pillowslips,
I sat down for tea
In my newly rearranged breakfast room
And watched as the rain fell
With a bouquet of iris on the table
Husband Jim and I shared a pot of tea
And a nosh of leftover
"Mother's Day Cookies"
The sunny bright "black eyed Susans" and "Daisies"
made the dreary rainy day seem a bit brighter!
