 May brought us gifts. . . 
. . . like the iris blooming on the hill,

and the Linden tree, my favorite, all leafed out and glorious against the sky,

 the chives delicious for the eye and the palate,

 and the late blooming lilacs that fill the air with deep scent.

The Daisies are so very fun. He loves me, he loves me not.

There is new growth on the pines and everywhere else.

The Lupines have seeded themselves in the garden. Thank you sweet Birdies!
Everywhere I turn there is something glorious to see.

                             Ain't life grand?
Of course, the vegetable garden isn't fully planted but that's ok. . . .all in good time.  I need to enjoy the journey.

happy day!
