We’ve had a busy few days with company. We enjoyed a meal together on Memorial Day. The rest of the week I will be involved with a group garage sale. I didn’t have time to complete the answers to the Hodgepodge questions this week. My usual Thursday, Truth for Today, will not be happening this week. Hope you all have a good end to May and beginning of June. It was fun setting a Memorial day table. I’ll be back next week!
We are in the greening time of the year which also means it is mowing season.
Our red peonies are bursting forth and we’ll have many bouquets to enjoy.
I was sad to see one of our 90 foot trees is dying. You can see the one that looks brown. That tree will be coming down soon.
The buds on our White Peony. I really need to divide this plant up.
Our deep red peonies. We have 5 bushes of these.
Irises grow well here and grow wild and multiply!
We are ready for Memorial Day, Flag Day, The Fourth of July and more!
On Sunday we had some severe thunderstorms with gusts of wind, downpours of rain and hail, too. The noise of thunder and the flashes of lightning kept me awake from 2am on. We had some minor damage but nothing serious. We have never had storms this intense. Exciting to watch. They predict more excitement into Monday. The bonus is that I do not have to water for a few days. I had to mow twice last week things are growing so quickly. All of these photos were taken last Thursday and Saturday.
Happy Victoria Day to our neighbors North of us, O Canada!
