They are such show-offs that I can't help but give them a lot of
time in front of the camera.
They were everywhere!
I savored them, I hoarded them, I photographed them
and then finally when I had my full of them,
I sold some of them.

white peonies in the background are Duchesse de Neumours (very fragrant)
pink peonies Sarah Bernhardt (my favorite pink)
a little deeper pink than Sarah
I love that it has this hint of yellow in the outer petals.
a pink that's blooming now in the garden is this pretty Strawberry foxglove
I love this foxglove, because it is perennial and not biannual.
The biannual don't work out here because I seem to always
pull up the new seedlings when doing my first weeding and
so I never see them again.
I also have an apricot and a yellow variety of the perennial foxglove.
My little grandson made this birdhouse for me as a cub scout project
and I love it! I noticed while taking this photo that it has residents this year.
Last year. no birds--could it have been the paint fumes???,
because Ellis (the carpenter) and Maddie (the carpenter's cousin)
used a whole quart of white paint on it : ) of course most of it was on them
and the ground))
It's my favorite birdhouse in the garden!
a few years ago called John Davis (one of the hardy Canadian roses).
I LOVE this rose!
The perfect pink, and I love it's rambling nature.
It grows along the pole fence between the clothesline and pasture.
in town and when he passed away, a friend who had been care taking his place
asked if I wanted the old gate before everything was torn down.
Of course I did!
I love these old gates.
Thanks to everyone who reads here!
Blogging is such a joy for me and the people I've connected with
are truly a gift!
