After the rains I walked around the yard, delighting that so many flowers are happy right now. I wanted to share them with you.
These are Rio Samba roses. They start bright yellow, then slowly turn to coral.
Impatiens like the shade of our front porch.
My husband’s clematis.
Wave petunias on the deck.
A new color of iris blooming that I’ve never seen before!
When we first married – almost 50 years ago now – my husband wasn’t into flowers. He didn’t mind them, just didn’t care about them one way or the other and tried to make me happy by taking me to the local nurseries to find things to plant.
Now he actively works at getting our wisteria to grow up a tree, weeds his clematis, notices and remarks on the roses, LOVES the deep purple iris – now his favorite flower.
Flowers are a quality of life thing – and we’re rich in them!
