Lovely Iris Lori. I see you have some of that rare commodity known as sunshine in the background. I hope you are having a better summer than we are having in the UK. About 5 days worth so far. Cloudy all the time and windy with it as well. Getting a bit short of water too.

Thanks Bbb...!
Hello Dorjac! thanks...I just love it and was worried that it wouldn't like the change from the transfer bed into the stream valley garden. But just look at it..! I'm thrilled. Yes we have had a lot of mixed cloud days but on the whole it has been quite cool as springs go. Even now in the early days of summer it's not sizzling. (thank heaven)...No rain in the UK? we've had plenty of rain so far and everything is so lush. It's lovely...just hope it keeps up. It was so dry last summer that we actually lost trees from the drought! Fingers crossed that you get some sun. the constant drying wind is a bother..hope it lets up soon. Would be nice to have a perfect summer as in childhood days...warm to hot days...evening thunderstorm...nights cooled for sleeping.. crops watered by storm... and repeated over the two hot months. ;-)
