I just kept thinking of Tom Sawyer as I painted all of those 'pickets', so to speak. Not really fun. But I'm glad that hubby drives me to do these things that need doing, or I'd spend all of my time at the sewing machine. Hmmmmmm........sewing machine--it's cloudy and wet today, maybe I could re-acquaint myself with the old girl for a few hours !
UPDATE-------I did get to my sewing machine for a while......actually, it was my SECOND sewing machine, because I wanted to try my triple zigzag stitch for machine-quilting now that I can see where I'm going with my open-toed walking foot.
I like it ! Here's a sneak peek.......
Anyway, back to yesterday.........my Irises were blooming when I took my first look outside yesterday morning. 6 blooms, and all of them are this beautiful purple that reminds me of my mama (how she loved them !)

I trim back my striped Monkey Grass every Spring, once I see new growth started at the base of the plants, and I am amazed at how much it grows every day when the sun comes out full force ! I never had this plant before moving to this lot, and I am so glad that it was planted here before I bought this place. I moved a lot of it out here to the near-woods flower area because of the work being done on the porch last Fall, but I also have it along the front of the trailer with the Irises.
