I haven't been blogging much lately due to various ongoing house projects consuming me. Hopefully we will have things wrapped up by fall but I do have a long list of tasks to do, mostly involving painting. Very time intensive!
The weather has been cool and wet for the most part. The upside is the plants and flowers are loving it!
Our azaleas which barely had flowers last year are incredibly happy! They are ancient so their shapes are a little funny. I'm afraid trim them too much which could affect their livelihood.
Above is a bit on the red side. The shrub below it hot pink, still waiting for the flowers to fully open!
These purple tulips are experiencing a very long bloom life.
One of them is shy not wanting its picture taken.
We have these stunning red tulips that look fake! It was mentioned to me that these are sometimes referred to as peony tulips which makes complete sense considering how the flower opens and appears when in complete bloom.
The petals are amazing.
Our ancient lilac bush is back like crazy (we considered chopping her down last summer)!
Definitely a keeper now!
I hope you enjoyed some of the color we are seeing around the yard.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful week. ~Val
