Water Iris

In the yard with the camera again...



When we built the pond in 1996, Poppy and I went to Lowes garden center and bought one, just one, yellow water iris. Today iris surround the entire pond. 







The bull frogs were noisy last night. One in particular was louder than the others. Mama used to say the old frogs are saying, "under the root, under the root". Then another would say, "what'da ya chew, what'da ya chew"?  And a frog would answer, "tobacco, tobacco, tobacco".   Good memories.

Eli and Poppy hung out in the living room last night...



Whilst I made a custard pie. Not the prettiest pie I've ever made. Looks like the man in the moon...



Poppy got the first piece...




Thanks for stopping by.

Love,
Henny Penny

  4. Eli looks quite comfortable "hanging" out and your iris are such a beautiful yellow color. I heard the chorus frogs here this weekend, the ones that sound like when your run your thumb across the spikes of a plastic comb.

    1. I need to listen for that sound of the chorus frogs. I'm sure I have heard them. I love how you described their singing.

  6. Hey Henny, Frank said to tell Poppy thank you about the turkey. I froze the meat for now I will cook it soon. Do you cook them? Shelby did buy the topper on the headstone for the flowers on Grandma's grave. I put the basket on there. I love your water lilies they make the pond more beautiful.The pie looks yummy.

    Love you

    1. Hey Vicki, I recently cooked a wild turkey breast that was in the freezer and to my surprise it was good. The first one I ever cooked was tough. I cooked it wrong and too long. Love you!

    1. Hey Karen, Thank you. I love your place, and your dogs, and your garden spot, and the woods that you all walk in. I don't guess you would consider trading? :)
