Tuesday Tidbits - Bumblebee and Award

It rained almost every day while we were in Kansas. Since returning, the temperatures have been cool to down right COLD last night. Our heat kicked on. The wet and cool weather has been great for all the things growing in our yard.

Last summer, Hubs gave me another "bee" gift. He gave me two iris rhizomes and said they were Bumblebee iris. They went in the ground with a lot of other bulbs and rhizomes last fall. While on a walk around the yard this weekend, I was delighted to find this bloom.

It was a tiny bloom and didn't last but a couple of days. The lower petals are a dark purple. Wish I had an entire bouquet of them.

My blog was visited by Annie of "Annie's Home" and she gave me this award.

Thank you, Annie!

The rules for accepting this award are:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

This was the perfect challenge for me as I have been wanting to do a little traveling around the blogsphere to see some new sites. These are some of the places I landed and really enjoyed while visiting. Check them out as you may find some one new to read.
