Yup! That's all it took. I bought this "Bearded Iris" a few years ago. It only bloomed once although the greens did sprout every year. This year I fertilized in early April and now I have one bloom. Just one but I love it! Two other sets sprouted greens but no blooms. Maybe next year.

I know it's been quite a while since I've posted but my new job has really taken over. I've been exhausted and am now getting used to my new schedule. Unfortunately, my creative time has been cut drastically. Ironic that I work at a fabric/craft store and I don't have time to be creative at home.

I have just started a new, huge project of decreasing my CPK collection. I have been listing Kids in my Readoption room and hope to list some on Ebay. The first Saturday in June is my yard sale and some of them will end up there.

So, on another note...Steph and her boyfriend, Grant came to Louisville for the Derby weekend. We all went to the Oaks (Friday before Derby) and had a great day at the track. Fortunately, we had fabulous weather (sorry Derby).

And, of course we just had to have Frank and I went off to Dee's Crafts to find the hats and all of the decorations. Steph had to mail me her dress so we could match the ribbons and ribbons. We didn't put hers all together until she arrived on Thursday. I think they came out pretty good. As crafty as I am, I am lucky that Frank has a great color eye.

This is the second year that The Oaks is "Pink Out" at Churchill Downs. Everyone is encouraged to wear pink and the track is all decked out in pink, as well. Huge donations were made to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Yyes, Frank is wearing pink stripes on his shirt.)
