I took a walk around the yard the other day, and found several pretty flowers blooming out there. Before I got sick and not able to do much, I used to love to plant flowers and work in the yard. It has been very hard for me to not be able to plant petunias, salvia, zinnias, shasta daisies, and cosmos this spring. I’m also missing planting an herb garden, something every cook with a little space needs to have. If I could, I would plant basil, dill, thyme, marjoram, oregano, parsley, and garlic. It would be so nice to just walk out the door and cut the freshest herbs for dinner!
The pond is especially pretty right now, with the plants in it coming to life. We were surprised on Saturday with a water lily blossom!
Here is a close up of the same flower:
Out by the driveway, these irises have been blooming for a week or so.
They smell so good, but you have to get up close to get that sweet scent.
This plant is growing by the well head. The flowers close up at night, and open back up each morning. I don’t know what it is. Do you?
One last photo of the unknown plant:
I thought at first that this was a snowball bush, but now I think it is a type of hydrangea. What do you think?
I can’t wait to see what blooms next!
