a basket full for you...







picking wild flowers
with you
is all I want to do.

by the color purple in a field
and don't notice it"

for Mosaic Monday!....
hope you have
some more time to kill,
so you can go through 
some barns too!!

Love it and love your quote. Purple and green are my two favorite colors. Love your bouquet in the mason jar. Great post.

My favorite Iris color . . . your photos were perfect!

My Iris bloomed this week . . . They are very small and were from a bed cutting my mom gave me 45 years ago. They came from mom's beds in Iowa, then to Wisconsin, on to Michigan. I brought a bed cutting when I moved from my one home in Western Michigan to my " now home" I had built twenty years ago.

I share cuttings of this Iris and have mailed them back to Iowa, to Colorado, south . . . all over . . . It is a very tiny Iris, mom called it a Japanese Iris . . . Guess I will do a post on the Iris . . .

Love the pictures and the quotes! I think I'll look into how to grow irises in Florida. I've heard it can be done.

Glad you stopped by my blog too. :)
