Flowers!

The daffodils are just about finished blooming this spring with the days getting warmer along with the nights, and of course spring showers.

I have had my father staying with us this past week, he enjoys the company so he says. Next week I will drive 230 km (round trip) and bring him home to stay again before he goes into the private hospital for a small procedure, then he will come back to my house till he is strong enough, then I take him home again to his house.  I stay with my father for 2 to 3 nights each week if he isn't staying at our house. He is now used to our house as to where things are, but there are several things he can't do due to his blindness.

The photo of the very small daffodil is only sharp in the middle but that is they way I wanted it.




The first of the Freesias.


Another Iris, and I prefer this colour than the last one I photographed.

    1. Thanks F, and yes it's a lot of traveling by myself and does make me a little tired, but I will get over it.
      I love the irises, most bulbs don't seem to flower for that long.
