2 of my Favorite Things

Happy Birthday Latte!!!

Latte' is 5 Today

Latte' at 5-1/2 months

My sweet, smart, and wonderful fur baby turned five today! She is so adorable and I love her so very much. I rescued her when she was about 6 weeks old. My Niece found her walking on the road. We tried to find an owner, but no one came forward. Not sure why such a tiny puppy was out and about on her own.

Latte' Nov 2008

Look what I found in my garden when I went out to hide Easter eggs for the Grandsons.
So pretty! So perfect! What a beautiful color!

It's the first one to bloom this year. Hopefully I will have blooming irises for a few weeks. Irises are my all time favorite flower. I collect anything and everything that has an iris on it. Jewelry! Throws! Pillows! Knick-knacks! Cards! Pictures! As a child we called them "Flags". A neighbor down the block has a yard full of "flags" in every color, and that is where my love affair of them began. And it wasn't until I was an adult that I learned they were really called Irises.

This is another picture of the same bloom.

I only have irises in two shades of purple and really should get some other colors. I love seeing a mixture of irises in different colors in a garden. Just not sure that I am up to digging holes to plant the bulbs. I should take a drive out to the fairgrounds, as they have a really nice display of irises, to see if theirs are blooming.
