Elaine cut this bouquet of Purple Iris and Vanhoutte Spirea from our yard and put it on the kitchen table. The Iris are some that were here at the house when we bought it 30 years ago but we have divided and moved them a couple times. The Vanhutte Spirea still forms a boundary between our front yard and the neighbor. All of the Spireas seem to have done well this spring. Our warm March has brought the flowers, shrubs and trees out much earlier than normal. We did find a couple Moths in the house today after reading in the morning paper that the extreme storms last Saturday brought many of them into the area. The storm did bring us some much needed rain but there were buildings destroyed within about 10 miles of Seward. That's as close as we want to be to tornado's.
