Lovely blooms are all over my yard and how I love it. Flowers do warm my heart even if the day may be a hard day. So I pick peonies, take photos of Clematis and Iris. All enjoyable as I also watch my salad and herb garden grow and pumpkin patch increase in leaves each day. The rain has been hitting our area every evening for a bit, maybe 1 inch, or 1/2 inch a day. It means weeding is easier and less watering time. Time to enjoy it all and raise the spirits of anyone who takes the time to look.
