Darn Tough

I love wool socks. But, I wear holes in them.

Very quickly.

Lucky for me, Darn Tough stands behind their product.
And they live up to their lifetime guarantee. 
Hooray for a company with integrity!
It's wonderful to buy American.

This is my new pair of socks. 
The socks were sent to me as a replacement 
for the holy hole-y socks I sent to them.

How's that for customer service?!

Thank you, Darn Tough!

April Showers Bring...

Saturday afternoon was just beautiful. I went out to weed, and transplant a few perennials, and was hijacked by a dwarf iris. My only purple iris (at least for now... stay tuned for an iris post later this spring!) was blooming. 

It was lovely. 

I took a few pictures of it, and Mr. Dreamy came out to take a few more pictures. I took pictures of a few tulips and daffodils. 

They were all lovely. 

I decided that I wanted to draw the iris, since that is one of the flowers that we drew in a recent online art class I've been taking. I've drawn iris from pictures, but never "in person". So, I gathered my paper and pencil and plopped myself down on the edge of the garden and began to sketch. Mr. Dreamy came out with my bag of colored pencils. I colored. 

It was a lovely afternoon.

Yup, the weeds will just have to wait!
