Besides the lovely blooming lilac, a Mother’s Day gift of that we planted outside my kitchen window, our yard boasts several other blooming beauties this week.
These tiny blue lobelias make me think of Mama because she adored this shade of blue and also greatly appreciated any hanging basket cascading with flowers.
Elsewhere in our yard, this sweet bleeding heart continues bloom.
And the rhododendron bush is suddenly blooming, too!
Coming soon are the peonies — another favorite scent. This year I am particularly looking forward to the peonies because last fall a friend split hers and gave me half a dozen new ones to grow in our front flower beds. I can hardly wait to smell them!
