Morning in the Garden
The shadows are lengthening
as the sun rises higher in the sky
but still it is morning,
and there is that lovely fresh aura
in the air
Spring is late this year, -
at least the gardens' response to spring.
I look at pictures from earlier years
when the Blaze and Princess roses
were in full bloom...
but I am not impatient.
It will all happen in good time
and I find joy in watching the garden gradually
settle into summer!
Here's what's blooming!!!!
The Iris, of course
Iris and a few pink roses, although they are far behind last year's generous offering....
not so with the buttercups, - they are inclined to be weedish - but bright and heart warming, so they
a few early poppies and the honeysuckle coming into bloom
along with the clematis that lives beside it.
The scarlet peonies along the front fence have been quite gorgeous,
but here, in the back garden, the single white peony starts to bloom
and they are so lovely in the evenings when they spread wide
their petals, and their beautiful golden centre glows.
The Blaze rose got a terrific pruning job this year, and although they are not
the brilliant blaze of glory as in other years
we will look forward to 2021!!!
Lilies - the first of many
and more pink cabbage roses
Everything welcomes the sun and the rain
and blooms merrily
Oh, life would be so dreary without a garden!!
