This pass Monday, we had such a strange weather! During the day it was
very nice and sunny. Then by late evening time, it started with strong wind
and pouring rain. At 8:30 PM, we had hail, and right afterward, I saw the sky above.
A beautiful bud all wraps up tightly bathing in the warm sun. This golden yellow is one of my favorites in the garden. Having two trees chopped this spring, the sun has finally be able to reach my garden area and is keeping all the flowers happy.
These are my lily of the valley flowers around my home! They are very pretty, and smell amazing but also invasive. They grow everywhere in double numbers from the year before. I collect them for my purple vase and brought inside the house. They sit on my window sill and when the sun hits it just right, they look just fabulous.
Summer is shy away here in my world. We have very few days of hot weather and then back to rain, windy and cold. The sun can barely come out or stay out for more than a couple of hours. Leaves are filling in on tree branches and grass grows so much that mowing the lawn at least twice a week is required.
On those rare moments when a dash of blue sky and pinkish cloud crossing, obviously it was captured by a crazy woman. I want my summer! I want my hot days!
I posted these flowers on Wandering Thought a few weeks ago, but didn't know their name. One of my visitors suggested that I look up "wallflowers", and sure enough they are wallflowers, which are currently growing in my garden.
I never knew there is such thing as real wallflowers, and these must be from last year Dollar Store Wild Flowers Box purchase. They came up around the tulips and hyacinths time, but last so much longer. They have a very pretty smell, sweet perfume to them, and still blooming.
