rainbows + roses

Not to go all Mary Sunshine on you, but we live in a preeetty pastoral area.  So when I go to take pictures, I have a lot of this to choose from:
And oh my goodness.  We had no idea when we moved into this house a little over a month ago how much bloomage would be happening! 
There are about 10 rosebushes in full bloom.  And the iris is just charging out all over the yard!
I gather up long stalks of iris and thorny bunches of roses and our house is quickly adorned.
Which is good since I haven't hung one picture or piece of art in this house.  Of course along with all the pastoral scenery surrounding us, we find a lot of these:
We hear cattle lowing while we play in our yard, which stops the littles dead in their tracks.  Rowan gets wide eyes and says, "scared!"  Yep.  She may be a city girl like her mama.

{Quick message to my regulars: I'll be on a blogging hiatus until next Tuesday!  See you then!}
