"I love the smell of rain and growing things."
|The dining room garden|
|It looks like the Wild Cherry tree is going to be full of fruit this year.|
|My first Poppy|
|I love the combination of colors. Bachelor Buttons and Poppy|
|There is more color in the big garden everyday.|
|These Columbine are amazing. I wish I could capture the true color. They are a deep navy blue.|
|Garden by the house, Wild Geranium and Coreopsis|
|The one and only Rhoddy is still not blooming very much. It may need to be transplanted to a shadier spot.|
|Slowly, the Irises are opening|
|This Hosta is a monster!|
|Two in one.|
|Mystery Silene. It just showed up in my yard one day!|
|Color! Poppy, catmint, coral bells and coreopsis|
|Coreopsis and Columbine|
|I love the color of the not quite completely opened Bachelor Button.|
|Solomon Seal and a native wildflower whose name I forget!|
The last few weeks, there has been more rain than sunshine. Everything is lush and so,so green. There are so many plants waiting expectantly for sunshine. When I look at the waiting buds, it reminds me of a pregnant woman who is overdue. They look like they are about to burst. And, I want them to! How amazing the gardens will be when the Clematis, Peonies, Campion buds and so many more beauties open up and smile at the sun!
Today, I'm grateful to God for the rain.
What are you grateful for?
