It seems as if everything is blooming so early this year and all at one time. The old fashioned roses on the clothes line pole have intertwined with the trumpet vine. Nestled among the vines is a bluebird house. This rose was given to me by a friend. It is a beautiful deep red velvety rose with that traditional rose scent. I adore these old roses rambling carefree over the property. The biggest problem I have with them is keeping the deer from eating them.
Yellow Yarrow just starting to open.
Catmint lures the bees like no other plant. The buzzing of the bees can be heard long before you even see the plant. It smalls great and is not invasive like many mints.
More Dianthus or Pinks as some call them. Actually in the Carnation family thay all have that great clove smell.
And the first of the peony are opening. It makes me sad to see them open because with all the rain lately I know they will not last long. Just a brief glimpse of their beauty before the rain beats them and they start to look less pristine. Guess I will just have to enjoy that brief time.
What's new blooming in your garden this week?
And for all you Moms out there Happy Mothers Day : )
