We took a last minute trip to the north part of our state to the Ozark Mountains. I have a friend who has in iris farm and have been given iris from her from time to time. Iris as most know are my favorite flower and as we are about a week ahead of them weatherwise and mine were beginning to die, we decided to make the 5 hour trip up there. We had perfect weather going and visiting with them. We were both amazed at how many she had and how many colors...all colors of the rainbow. I picked out and bought a few. Then they followed us to the motel and took us out to eat at Salsa's. The food was terrific but OH MY could not believe how much they served. I could only eat about 1/3 of mine if that. I know if it had been 2 years ago, I could eaten it all. Hubby surprised me at how much he ate as he usually doesn't eat that much anymore either. Our friends practically cleaned their plates. But I was so proud of myself. I stopped eating when I felt full. And didn't overstuff and was able to sleep that night. I also got lots of walking in while at my friends' farm.
The trip home wasn't very fun!! We drove home in the rain and it took 6 hours driving home. But I'm very thankful for the rain as we got a much needed inch of rain and it seemed our garden had grown twice the size. We also came home to the rose bush in full bloom and my jackmani clematis blooming. O I do love spring!!!
