Spring is turning to summer and my garden is in full bloom. I am so pleased with it this year. Some years the weather is volatile and the blooms are ruined, or it doesn't rain at all and things don't bloom. This year, in spite of the pandemic problems, my garden has produced one beauty after another.
Even the chives are beautiful now. We love them in scrambled eggs, or cottage cheese.
The colors of these irises really pop in the sunlight. The blue and white reminds me of Memorial Day, which I observed by watching some readings and prayers online, then we took this photo for a friend.
We joined in a Spread the Flag campaign hosted by a young woman friend who is hosting a drive to get photos of people and flags from every state. You can read more here. Please feel free to join in with your photo.
My peonies did not disappoint. I am amazed at their beauty as I ponder their ephemeral nature.
Thanks for visiting today. It's Friday, and every Friday a bunch of us get together to share poems. Join us! This Poetry Friday is hosted by Mary Lee Hahn at A Year of Reading. You'll find links in the comment section.
