Finally! Spring is here!
Since the early 1940s, only one other year has been wetter than this one.
It’s been rain, rain, rain, followed by more rain. And then some more.
[shhhh, this is a secret: I do not mind the rain. I’ve been just fine inside, right in front of my sewing machine.]
But, when the sun comes out and everything is sparkling and clean, it’s impossible to stay inside.
And besides, all these beauties are calling to me.
My Royal Sunset rose is just about ready to bloom.
I can’t wait. It has the best fragrance.
I didn’t even know this one had opened!
The things you find out when you finally go outside.
I confess that I was amazed to find how well the weeds have been doing.
This now liberated iris was about to be swallowed by unruly grass and other uninvited plants.
A pretty rhododendron in full form.
This one wasn’t so sure about my yard. I’m happy to see it doing its best to adjust.
And just wait, the peonies are about to explode.
Except for all the flowers that are also my favorites, peonies are my favorite.
I can’t wait.
