Come take a stroll with me around the yard. I do the posy walk several times a day right now while every moment something new is blooming. My roses have finally given me the privacy I was hoping for in the front court yard.
inside the front court yard
Martha and blue skies... blooming on the back porch
Here she is...Lady Emma Hamilton. Remember all that deciding this spring on which new roses to purchase? This is my first new rose blossom. Wow I am wondering if I am going to love this color or hate it.
first year this peony has bloomed..I am in love
The roses are huge this year. Mild weather and sunshine.
Iceburg is always a moment of refreshment
These things I prize
And hold of dearest worth:
Light of the sapphire skies,
Peace of the silent hills,
Shelter of the forest, comfort of the grass,
Music of birds, murmur of little rills,
Shadows of clouds that swiftly pass,
And, after showers,
The smell of flowers
And of the good brown earth-
And best of all, along the way, friendship and mirth
Henry Van Dyke
