Lost in the woods!

For those of you who know me, you know I frequently have to drive to Atlantic City to work at the strangest hours.  This morning, I was really in a tough spot.  A lumber yard was burning in Hammonton, and RT 30 was closed..... so I was sent into the dark woods to find my way to work!
About 2 years ago, we had terrible forest fires on another route that I would use, so I finally bought a GARMIN!  It paid for itself this morning!  I would have never found my way except for my captain telling me which way to go.

Roses galore!

My new coc rose is blooming.  It is a burnt orange color and very thorny.  I wanted something for infornt of my house, so it's just perfect!

May flowers

The weather here has been spring like- cold and rainy!
But today I finally moved my orchids outside to their summer home.  Bought a new one a few weeks ago.  It is a very dark purple with vibrant green on the reverse side of the petals.  Sorry the picture really does not do it justice.

spring in NJ

The weather today has been perfectly awful. Cold, rainy- I have the heat on!
But several days ago I was in Milford and saw these beautiful iris blooming!
