Have a Daily Cup from Mrs. Olson
Share Your Cup Thursday linky party
We're sharing whatever makes us happy this week and my happiness is all about my gardening- and particularly about my Siberian Iris and my fairy statue.
I lucked out and caught the lighting just right and snapped a few pictures that made me so happy!
Excuse my enthusiasm but after the long winters here in northern Michigan I sure get wound up with every detail!
I posted a picture on my Facebook page and said I think I need to name my statue...and asked for any input! One suggestion (Thank-you Tess!) was for "Iris" and of course I was sold immediately!!
Iris has stood in my garden for 3 years now.
I would like to figure out how to make her a water feature too! There is a hole in the bottom of her flower that suggests a great spot to connect! I need to get these brilliant ideas much earlier in the spring so I don't disturb everything growing. I'll have to wait on this one!
It's convenient to name her Iris when she's sitting amongst my Siberian Iris's, but I do love the name and being a fairy it seems like a perfect name for her!
She graces my garden and my flowers grace her!
I have impatiens planted in and around this area and in a few weeks they should be filling out and adding a nice pop of color!
The other thing this week that makes me squeak with joy are the peonies!
I had to bring one in and the fragrance blows me away! I have to get out and take more pictures! Everyday more flowers open up and there is always one prettier than the other!
Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
Incidentally I ordered my fairy statue from a company called Garden Creations out of New Jersey that sells Massarelli's statues which are made locally in NJ. I was thrilled to find something made in the U.S. and that can hold up in all the seasons! You can pick the color you want too! They have tons of statues, fountains, urns etc., it's fun to see all they offer.
