SInce I began going to school (Kindergarten in 1981), I have always been in school - one way or another.
From high school and college, through my husband's grad school and then mine, and then our teaching at a college, my life has been shaped by academic semesters: Fall, Spring, and Summer Break, for thirty-three years.
We moved into this house in early August of 2009, and in the first weeks of school that year, I remember watching the big hostas in the corner of the back yard bloom. They are in bloom again today.
Entering its second week...
The stand of wine-colored iris in the back yard continue to dazzle.
This collection is made possible by a friend's mother who mailed me these plants from Massachusetts four (or five) years ago.
With special guests:
We've had a week or so of cooler weather and rain. The tulips are just about gone, but the iris are ready to burst.
