Flowers and a Kitchen Update

I am sure many of you are wondering about my kitchen, so I thought I'd give you an update.  Not much has been going on lately.  But the door handles have been installed and the fan is now in place over the stove.    This week the counter top is to be delivered and installed.  The sink and taps will also be added at that time.  Then it will just be a matter of the back splash and some final work and my kitchen will be done!  Ohhhhh!  I can hardly wait!

Our weather has become hot and humid.  But that is much better than the rain we had for the month of May - twice as much as normal - 140mm of the wet stuff!  I bought this beautiful basket of begonias yesterday.  They are a new species, blooming all summer long, and come in salmon and red.  I think I might go back to the garden centre and buy myself a red one! 

And last, but not least, my blue iris has started to bloom.  Isn't it fantastic?

And now I am going to sit outside in the shade and do some crocheting.  I started an afghan last summer, but never got it finished.  Maybe that will happen this year!

Love that iris. The dark shading around the outside with the white on the inner is just gorgeous.

Your begonias and iris are beautiful. I wish I could have found a basket of begonias like that for my back yard.
The kitchen is looking great.

It sounds like your kitchen will be done in another month. Just in time to barbecue outside so the house doesn't heat up. HA HA
