Bearded Iris and Perfect Moments

Even Grand Forks occasionally has beautiful weather! It was 80 degrees, only 24% humidity, a little wind, a lot of sunshine, the irises are blooming, birds are singing, the lilacs are fragrant . . .
. . . and it was my day off from work!

After digging out some crazy-multiplying lilly of the valley, I sat in a lounge chair under the lilac bush, drinking ice tea, watching a robin go nuts taking a bath in the bird bath. . .

and reading an historical/romance/spy novel by Michael White (Beautiful Assassin.)

And then I finished off the day by baking some biscotti. Just one of those days filled with perfect moments!
