As soon as we’ve pulled into the driveway, I’m out of the car to get a first glimpse of what is new in the yard.
This time of year is still springlike in Maine, so first blooms are just visible.
Rarely are any of my tulips still in bloom, but thanks to a late spring arrival, they are still showing off.
The climbing hydrangea appears to be ready for a banner season
and rhododendrons are just beginning to bloom. A day or two of sunshine and they will be a mass of color.
Peonies are still just tight little buds, but it won’t be long until they are in full bloom. That i can never get enough of!
I can never remember the name of this bold beauty that stands tall and lifts its head to the sky. When they are done, I dry a few to use in fall bouquets.
The discovery that always brings a smile is this one that stays hidden
keeping the jack in the pulpit that lives inside a secret.
At the same time I see beauty and the promise of what is to come, I notice all the work that needs to be done in the yard. That’s always the case, but there is plenty of time to get it done.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
