Our Japanese Snow Bell is in full bloom. The flowers are in
a very soft pink and the tree is covered which is lovely.
Peony blooms are beautiful this year.
All the bushes had a nice set of blooms especially the
yellow one which was the first to open.
These two follow me around the yard because
everyone wants a free meal.
We have 2 couples that didn't have babies this year. There are
three couples that had 3 babies each. The duck pair had
five babies but now there is only three. Rabbits - we've
got rabbits and there are a million of them in our development.
What we need are more fox for population control.
By the way ... the geese think the bird bath on the bench
is their personal water bowl.
The white specks are Baby Breath. It has spread out into
the common area behind our wildflower garden.
Sweet Williams / Baby Breath
We have Sweet Williams in a variety of colors.
Yarrow ... you can't kill that stuff! It's the dominate plant
in the wild flower bed. In between the plants are more
Baby Breath plus we also have Forget-me-nots. These are
tiny blue flowers and I'm going to try and get a picture of
them later today. I had a few Lupine plants growing in
the wild flower bed but they are not doing well. The
Hollyhocks have sent up flower stalks which is exciting.
I signed up for a free summer course from
The info on Erin's course is below.
In our upcoming three-part video series, you’ll learn a simple
step to double the number of blooms your plants produce,
how to cut and care for your flowers for the longest
vase life, and how to make mixed bouquets quickly and efficiently.

I'm getting caught up on my sewing projects and just have
the 4 soft story book panels to make into reading quilts.
These are not due until July so now I can breath!
