There hasn't been much quilting or any other stitching going on here the last few days. We've been working in the yard, digging dirt and pulling weeds. The flower areas need a lot of work - much more than just one or two days worth. Maybe I should say the weed areas need a few flowers. I've decided to tackle it the same way as my quilting projects, one section at a time. This ole body doesn't bounce back from the bending and pulling as quickly as it used to. No need to overdue, right? Our lilacs and lilies of the valley are about done blooming for the year, but other plants or bushes are ready to take their turn in the spotlight. Here are pictures of what is blooming in our yard (and our neighbors) during the final days of May. We have daisies, irises and snowball bushes.
Sherry, our next door neighbor, loves to work outside and has many, many roses that she enjoys nurturing and growing. A few years ago, she planted a peony tree. Now, I've had peonies growing wherever I have lived since I was a young tot, but they were always bushes. The first year her tree sported one big, pink flower on top. Check it out now! The blooms are huge and so pretty. I had to take pictures.
