Everything’s Coming Up…Flowers!

My whole yard is in bloom! The peonies were starting when I left on Tuesday…now the bushes are climbing with large flowers.  I failed to get my rosebushes trimmed and now one is making some glorious blossoms.  I don’t really care for the miniature rosebushes because there is no smell even though the flowers are quite nice…but they are also going crazy with blooms…must be all this rain we have had….it’s very windy here today as storms are forecasted for the area.

Blooming Pink Peonies!


…and one opening up…with a couple of critters crawling…


Blooming Peonies…

My white peonies are blooming.  They always start blooming before the pink ones do.  I don’t know why..does anyone out there know why?  I love to go out and cut both colors and bring into the house.  They have a wonderful smell.


Before opening….


…yeah, I know they look pink, but trust me…they will open up white with just a tinge of pink blush.  The pink ones are really PINK when they open.
