bring May flowers”
and I’m so glad they do!
Every year about this time, it feels like the jungle wants to reclaim our large yard.
When we picked out the lot for our house we chose the largest of the three lots available.
(What were we thinking?)
It was a tangle of blackberry vines and other underbrush
with two huge old growth cedar trees in the midst of it all.
Every spring we have a truck load of debris to haul away due to the cedar trees
as well as the neighbor’s huge fir trees which “shed” over into our yard.
We have almost another whole truck load of weeds, ivy and blackberry shoots that spring up.
Last year I planted two rose bushes and four lavender plants, and thankfully they appear to be surviving.
This year I bought the beautiful peony you see in the photos above.
And, with my lack of gardening skills, this proves that I am ever an optimist!
Friday’s comin’ my friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY, FRIDAY and a BLESSED WEEKEND!
