I took this photograph yesterday afternoon, and you can see our irises are in full bloom. They smell delightful, but some of the first blooms are already spent.
This morning we've attended to spring chores. After grocery shopping, Target, the library and an auto parts store, Sherry rearranged Sarah's room while Sarah used the pruning clippers to trim our decorative cherry tree. I told her I'd give her five bucks, which in retrospect was way too much for the job. It only took her ten or fifteen minutes, but I honored my word.
Usually when I find Molly up on the rail like this I also find the neighbor's big grey cat stalking her. On this occasion she was just hanging out.
