Finally the iris I've been waiting for has opened, "Prank". Last of the bunch. This is the one I wanted when I ordered from Iris Sisters Farm. Yellow petals with a light blue beard. Supposedly scented, but it's only 9" tall, so hard to get close enough. I also ordered "What Again", which has done the best of all. I may be digging up some of it to give away after they finish flowering. Along with my order they sent me three or four other kinds. I have the names written down, but don't remember them right now. All flowering now.
So, another birthday this weekend. At least I'm not recovering from surgery this year. Hopefully I can stay healthy and get back in better shape before I go to TAC Summer School in July. I went for a walk this morning, and expect to get to Aikido class tomorrow night. Then walk again on Friday. At least it's lighter now in the mornings so I can get out there earlier.
We're planning to go see the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Boise Art Museum on Sunday, as part of my birthday celebration. And I think we'll buy some salmon for dinner. Yum! Plus, the new Star Trek movie opens next Friday. I don't care how nerdy it is, I want to see it.
My parents should be in Boise for a visit in a few weeks. It will be good to see them.
