While we grew tired of the rain, the flowers have been in their glory. Today is our 4th day in a row without rain and it is warm and beautiful outside. I pushed myself away from the computer gasping for fresh air perfumed by all that is in bloom. I thought I would share my walk with you and what is blooming in my garden today as I restore my five senses.
There are still a few Irises in bloom
Roses by the back stoop...filled with daffodils earlier
A Climber waiting for the shed to be painted so the trellis can be hung and the the flowers trained
Soon to be a full fledged Peony
just like this one
Another peony bush full of buds
and the first bloom.
You might notice a love of peonies and roses and the color pink
I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. ~Claude Monet
I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck. ~Emma Goldman
more of the same rose bush
Outside my computer room..I can see them now as I write
A shade garden my mom and I have been working on
The little shed is the same one from a previous post about us painting it...the rain has delayed that project. It will be a pale yellow when done. Soon I hope.
so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty,
so short in life yet long on effect. ~Adabella Radici
