Happy June! Happy Snapshot Saturday! The photo party has migrated to West Metro Mommy hosted by Melinda. Thanks again to Melinda for giving us our new home. Be sure to check out the other blogs linking up when your finish here at BCDC. Of course…leave some comments.
I was at my sister Ele’s house on Sunday for our Memorial Day celebration. I wanted to share some flower photos again, but these have a bit of a story to go with them. (Isn’t there always a story here?)
Where they are planted used to be a swimming pool that my Dad built with reclaimed bricks from the work sites he frequented in his job as a supervisor for the local gas company. He dug the hole and with brick and cement made us a swimming pool. As kids, we spent many summer hours splashing and having a wonderful time in this pool. I should have taken a full photo so that you could understand what I mean. But I was focusing on the flowers. After we got older and no longer used the pool, it was filled in with dirt for safety reasons. We decided it would make a nice flower garden.
Going along with my love of irises, I planted what I believe are known as Japanese irises. I am so happy that they are still blooming all these years later. Some of the other flowers have not fared so well.
They make me happy to look at them.
Be sure to visit West Metro Mommy to see what the other Snapshot Saturday folks are sharing.
Happy Snapshot Saturday!
