For Those Not Weary of Oriental Flora ...

At last! I discovered that my pictures could load;  they just needed about five minutes apiece to do it. Sigh. So, without further ado, here are more flowers from our little village. These were almost all taken at a friend's home.
She has such irises!
These were in one of her hanging baskets:
An adorable Gerber daisy popped up by herself.
These flowers are a mystery. Their greenery looks like simple, weedy grass. They're very pretty.
Here's another frilly iris!
The knock-out roses that flourish all over town are starting to bloom. 
This is my favorite bush because it's right by the street as I ride on my bike.
This iris is purple -- I promise. Why the camera changed its color, I can't guess!
I really did want you to see this bank of abundant purple bloom, but I couldn't resist getting the very-silly church sign. These kinds of ridiculous sayings drive Adam and me nuts, but they must appeal to some people, since they're so popular.
Merry Spring!

  2. I do wonder who does like them, besides the pastor or secretary or whoever thinks them up. We drive by a particular church sign every day and many times I have cringed over the things posted there.

  3. There's a big banner outside a local radio station that says, "Jesus is my boss. He loves you too." It makes me crazy every time I see it (though I have to concede it is not as bad as "some bunny loves you" on a church sign!!!!) Doesn't anyone learn about parallel structure any more?

  4. Esp. partial to the flower with the multiple blooms (the yellow/purple one), but don't know what it is either. So quirky.
