Boy, do we have irises!

Here are some of the other irises currently in bloom. There are other bluish and purple ones blooming as well. It's a shame most of them give this one, spring, burst of color.

Yesterday came and went so fast. I didn't get on the phone with Dell, and I don't think I'll be able to do that this morning since I'd like to get an earlier start in the studio. I didn't get to bed till around 2am - just couldn't go to sleep, so I sorted some seeds and got the next batch of seeds and markers ready to go.

I got the rest of the pots slipped yesterday and this morning I'll continue cleaning them up and finish decorating. The bisque will be ready to unload this morning and I might be able re-load and fire it again overnight. Tonight is Clay Club meeting so I'm not sure if I'll be able to get as much done as I hope since I have to stop early and make some guacamole for our Mexican food theme for tonight's meeting.

Once I got all the pots slipped, I headed for the garden. I got the A frames up for the beans, dug up and transplanted some perennials and got two mounds made and planted with summer squash. Karen got a lot of mulching and weeding done and the dug up daylilies finally got replanted in a new bed she dug on the edge of the driveway.

If I get the pots finished, I'll take a bit of time after lunch to transplant the zucchini,basil and sweet peppers and plant some root crops. It's the last day for a while (according to the Farmers Almanac) to plant root crops so I'll definitely plant a row of carrots and maybe some parsnips. I still have potato seeds that I saved from last year, to plant but I've planted enough potatoes already, so if I don't get these planted it's not a problem. I'll just cook them! :-)

Till later,
