We worked and worked. Ron is always a good sport and he helps me thank goodness. He used a shovel and I used a hula hoe. Together we got it cleaned.
Here is my bucket of Iris bulbs.
Almost a five gallon bucket. I only planted 10 bulbs when I moved here. They really like it. As I was digging and sorting and dividing. I thought of my mom who was an incredible gardener. I was thinking of how after her tulips, and daffodils and things like that bloomed she would always dig them up and store them all summer in the freezer. It doesn't get cold enough here to get good blooms but she did, because she did that and she always used fish emulsion when she put them in the ground in the fall. It is funny how when I am working like that memories flood back like it was just yesterday.
I was and am too sore to do anymore work. So I started working on a little rug by Notforgotten Farms
I was looking at photographs of wild turkeys, and I had never noticed how much wild turkeys and guineas resemble each other. Here is my latest rug, Old Tom

I have listened to such fun things that are in the public domain. I really enjoy hooking and listening to books that I might not have ever even heard of before.
I have had these cans of pumpkin in my pantry. I decided yesterday, to make a pumpkin pie. The only thing I changed this time was I used pumpkin pie spice. Instead of all of the other spices. Ron and I between ourselves at a whole pie!!! Most of the time I end up throwing pumpkin pie away. I really had to use a bit of self control and of course being so sore, to not make another one. I love fall.
It feels nice to get things back into shape.( I am glad that round is a shape.) Thank you so much for stopping by,
