First Iris and New Puppy

This is a picture of my first blooming iris of this year. This is a heirloom iris from my great-grandmother's yard. They have been passed around and passed around from family member to family member. Everytime they need to be thinned, they get passed down to yet another family member. I will have to thin them again this year and plan on passing them to a teacher at my kids' school.

My mom is buying this puppy for my kids. It is a pure black puppy that is 9 weeks old and will not get much bigger. So, what should I call her? I need to come up with a name for her. Please help and give me your suggestions.

As for my ankle, the doctor did a steriod injection in my ankle. The pain is getting a little better, and I expect to be better as the days go buy. The docotr felt that the pain was related to the increased swelling in the ankle, and the injection has decreased the swelling. Yahoo!


  1. What a beautiful flower! I'm so glad your ankle is feeling better. I hope it continues to do so.

    As for the puppy... I tend to give them cheesy names, so I'm probably not the best person to ask... I would say something like Tiny.. lol... Like I said, I'm the best person to give you a suggestion!

  2. Mine are out now, too I love irises.
