Friday flowers

I'm still around; just. It's been a crazy week at work, and quite busy out of work too. Not many weeks to the end for me now, and a lot of friends and colleagues leave today and tomorrow. Still busy with union stuff, a new front door fitted at home yesterday, a cardiac clinic the day before, that was cancelled on the day, and Jim wakes me around 2:30 a.m. every day. Then when I get up, he has the cheek to go back to sleep!
I'm tired.

Yellow Flag

Maybe this should be a 'white flag'; I feel like surrendering!
Just the one picture today.

Enjoy whatever you do today, and do it well.


  1. oh dear! hope you can get some real rest soon. (i'm sure the departures at work are no fun either...)

  2. Yellow to the Green Flag in spite of - will be a great day.
    Your photos are great.
    We do not give up yet.
    We will continue to persevere journey ...!
    Greetings from Eco ...

  3. There might be only one picture today, but it's a beauty. I'm sorry for the mess things are in for you right now. Hope all works out for the best for you.

  4. Keith, stunning lighting on the Iris. Obviously a time of very mixed emotions. It will be for the best.

  5. Don't give up Keith, all will be alright. The Yellow Flag is a fantastic, mellow yellow.

  6. Lovely Yellow Flag, Keith. Hope you well.

  7. Hi Keith...The yellow Flag Iris is lovely and as for a white flag...don't make me have to come over there and straighting you out!!
    Sorry things are not great at the moment....I guess my note I sent didn't help????
    ♥ my friend and huge hugs!!

  8. Glad you shared, despite your exhausted. Have a good, restful weekend!

  9. Hope things ease off for you soon---im in about the same boat having to get back into working after working at home for 4 years! Its been very hard to fit in the things I love to do around that. I have to make it to 2015---then I'll be free as a bird of paradise!

  10. My dog woke me up this morning, too. WAY before I should have gotten up. Hope your day gets better!

  11. Thanks Theresa. I've got a day off on Sunday, so I'm hoping to get out round my local lake.

    Eko, thank you :-)

    Thanks Linda. Just a couple more months to go.

    Thanks Adrian. I'll be glad when it's all over.

    Thank you Bob. I remember that song :-)

    Thanks Emma. Tired, but getting there ;-)

    Grace, I'll get there eventually. Thanks.

    Thank you Elizabeth. :-)

    Thanks Sondra. Some days it's easier than others. I'm going to take a holiday when it's all over lol

    Thanks Gail. Jim has a habit of waking me every morning, even on a day off.
    A pest, but I still love him lol

  12. Wish I could share some good luck with you. We are headed back to the Tetons (if all goes well) on July 22-24 then home and then on the 26 I get to head back up to that area (50 miles south) for a week with my youngest son and his group of scouts. Remember, If you want to come you have transport, a free guide (me with Sheriff references). Next June? It will cost you Airfare to Salt Lake City and then hotels and some food while here.

  13. A lovely image Keith...
    Yellow is always great to see in our countryside apart from the swaithes of Rape.
    Pets bless em lol.
    I laughed when you said he goes back to sleep after waking you.
    Just back from a few days in the Yorkshire Dales and it really is worth a vist... a welcome getaway for me anyway.
    Take care and keep your chin up.

  14. I'm laughing because I take Boom at night and early in the AM for his big walks, because of the heat. He goes back to sleep at night and I end up standing there, like a fool. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  15. Haven't been by in awhile, and I apologize. I've been scrolling through your gorgeous photos and am so glad I stopped by today. My goodness, each and every one is beautiful, clear, crisp, quality images. They'd all make beautiful cards!! ~karen

  16. hope you get some well deserved rest this weekend ... take the time ... kick back ... all the other stuff will be there tomorrow!

  17. Keith... The "Yellow Flag" means you will be back in full force. Believe it to be true. Great pic. Be strong my friend.

  18. Dale, thanks. A really great offer, that's hard to resist; thank you.

    Thanks Andrew. He's done the same this morning; sleeping now he's woke me up lol
    I did have to get up for work though, so he's forgiven.

    Gary, I'm sure out dogs are smarter than us at times lol

    Thanks Karen, glad you enjoyed them. :-)

    missing moments, thank you. A day off tomorrow, and I'm looking forward to it :-)

    Larry, let's hope so. Thanks :-)
