When these were given to me I was told that they are Japanese Iris.
For now, I have changed the comment form to embedded. That will make it easier for me to reply to your comments. For those of you that I know like the interaction through email, I will send my reply there. At least that is the plan. I read on another blog that they are expecting the email situation to be fixed.
Speaking of another blog, I know several people who have switched to WordPress. I thought I would give it a try. Let me just say that it made me feel really stupid. I got as far as the title on the top and got frustrated and quit. Will I go back and try again to get it up and running? Maybe I will. But I will need to be in a better frame of mind when I do it and it will need to be when I've got plenty of time. I think I'm just so used to the way blogger works that anything new confuses me.
It has been quite hot around here the past several days. I like heat but it seems that the older I get the less I can tolerate it. Most especially if it's humid. Last night we got rain and the most glorious breeze. The temperatures were still in the 70's so it was quite comfortable.
