And to that end, I went outside to the yard yesterday to see what was blooming. A couple of photos to share with you:
Pretty white peony. Smells divine.
Gorgeous raspberry double peony. Peonies are my favorite flowers. Please remind me to plant more this year.
The little irises are blooming, but a tad on the pitiful side this year. Gotta figure out what to do for them.
Nothing stops Lamb's Ears. So nice to touch.
We used to get a big patch of black-eyed Susan's on top of this rock wall, but the deer decimated them. Last Fall I noticed some baby buddliea's (butterfly bush) growing in that spot, so I left them alone over the winter. Look how big they are already! Need to move them, as they're too tall for this spot. But a nice gift from Mother Nature.
That was a nice stroll in the yard. Then today I picked Grandboy up early from after-school care and took him to Goodberry's for a concrete--flavor of the day was sweet cream and we had hot fudge sauce blended in. For those of you not familiar with Goodberry's, it a frozen custard that is absolutely supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Oh yeah. Life is good!
