Dinner was still cooking. The humidity was low tonight, and the mosquitos hadn’t started biting… so I grabbed my camera for a little photo journaling. It’s a beautiful time of year in our back yard! Here’s our new neighbors, the House Finches. They are busy feeding their hatchlings…
The peonies just popped open last weekend. This is a special plant to me because it was my grandmother’s bush. We got a start of it from the family farm about six years ago. It’s amazing how BIG the blossoms can get!
My favorite rose… a Peace rose! It starts out a gentle pale yellow, and gradually, as the buds open, adds deeper and deeper shades of pink to the petals. This one is just about at peak! And the smell! WOW.
