Seasons Change

Welcome!  A big 'thank you' to those of you who visited my last post and left the most encouraging comments.  I really enjoyed writing from my heart, and it pleases me that you all felt touched by it.

I love how the seasons play out in a garden.  Spring brings life to some of my most glorious flowers, like the daffodils, irises, peonies, lilies of the valley, azaleas and more.  

A peony bud, with rain drops inside.

Before the white peony bursts fully, it has the prettiest shade of light pink.


These plum irises have the briefest of days to shine.

Seems like one day each variety has its chance to dazzle, and the next, the blossoms begin to fade.

The lavender perfumes the air near my dining room window.
As Summer approaches and the weather warms, different plants come into their own.   My beloved hydrangeas make their big appearance.

Blue hydrangeas from my favorite bush.

A garden, through its seasons, reminds me of an orchestra, playing one long piece of beautiful music.  Each player contributes to the symphony.

 I love the beautiful music I see and hear in my yard.  I enjoy this progression, letting each plant do its thing.  

Lady's mantle.  I just love the way water beads up on its leaves.

Clematis had its time to bloom weeks ago.  It's done for the season.

Fuzzy lamb's ears.  I love the soft texture and the silvery green foliage.

Thunbergia continues to wind its way up the trellis.

I am so glad you dropped by today.  I hope you've enjoyed my garden photos!

Peace and blessings to you,
