As you can see I've been playing around with the water color app in PicMonkey but really I have so many pictures of floral abundance to show you I hardly know where to start.
The lavender outside my backdoor is running riot and the bees are crazy for it. You can actually hear them buzzing from the porch. No need to worry about them as I pass by on my way to the hen house they are completely drunk with nectar and only interested in their own affairs.
Just one of the bearded iris glowing in the sun. These only bloom once a year but they put on quite a show while they can.
We have lilacs in pink and purple, wine and white. In the early morning and evening the scent is intoxicating. It makes the stroll to the vegetable garden such a pleasure.
I've forgotten the name of this bush with variegated leaves and tiny pink flowers, it's another bee favorite especially the orchard bees which look like little flies but are actually wonderful beneficial pollinators. I wrote a post about them here (It's Buzzing Around Here).
Just look at this clematis! Can you believe the spectacle? She is the queen of the vegetable garden and she knows it. What a display of perfection!
Each one of these flowers is as large as a dinner plate, no kidding!
I hope your spring is just as glorious.
Until next time,
