"Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul."
|Peonies are amazing this year. Maybe they heard me whine about how scant the Irises were this year and took pity on me.|
|Peony with Ninebark and Coreopsis in the background.|
|I can never remember what kind of "bell" this is but, it's blooming beautifully. This morning, I was struck by how incredibly pristine they are.|
|Red Hot pokers! I love this stage. I purchased a couple more and hope for more of them rising into the air next year.|
|I have tried so hard to capture the color of Spiderwort on camera. This is as close as I've gotten and it's really good.|
|This little wildflower is called Gold and Green.|
|Primula is slowly passing.|
|Gaillardia is perfection when it first blooms.|
|An opening Wild Geranium|
|The Ninebark is at it's peak. Think it needs a haircut?|
|A lovely miniature Rose my daughter, Allison gave me.|
|Catmint is a heavy bloomer and lasts a long time.|
|The last of the Irises|
|Salvia is opening|
|Although I grow Heuchera mostly for the foliage, I love to see these delicate blooms waving in the breeze.|
Today, I'm grateful for this lovely old neighborhood I live in. The homes are truly unique having been built at different times. I love the shade on the streets from the trees along them and how it's quiet and I can hear the birds sing.
What are you grateful for today?
