June 4 is a very busy weekend day in this area. There are a number of festivals going on, and you don't know which way to turn.
So what I did instead is take some pictures, walk in an autism walk, post some photos to my Facebook account and sign up for Twitter. Sometimes the Internet can be such a drain on time. But I hope today's activity was worth it.
Yes, I did it, no thanks to new blogging friends from the Blogathon. I am on Twitter, under the name of RamblinGarden. You are welcome to follow me. Please bear with me while I get my "Twitter Legs" because some of my first posts may be a bit on the inane side.
As for the pictures, apparently, Firefox 4 is not playing well with Blogger. For a while, I couldn't get into my account at all and had to use Internet Explorer. Now, I can get into my account, but I can't upload photos if I am using Firefox. Something tells me I am going to leave Blogger if too much more of this stuff happens. Life is too short. (end of whine).
This first photo is of a bearded iris I know only as the "Kool Aid iris". The tubers were given to me by someone I used to work with. I wish blogs had smell-o-blogpost, because this post would have the delicious scent of grape Kool-Aid.
This is another purple bearded iris. We lost some of the blooms to the hailstorm last week but some of the buds survived. This iris also has a scent.
As for the walk, it was the second annual Greater Binghamton Walk for Autism. I was very glad to run into someone I hadn't seen for years, although I've had some communication with her on Facebook. And then, when we went food shopping afterwards, I ran into someone else I had not seen in years.
As today would have been my mother's 93rd birthday, the day was a bit bittersweet. But, after a gloomy drizzly start to the day, the sun ended up coming out.
