Buddy the dog decided that "we" needed a stroll in the garden last evening, so I stuck my iPhone in my pocket and off we went. Our incredibly pink Rhododendron is in bloom, I must tell you that cameras don't seem to like this color.. maybe it's a bit too much for them to believe, that anything could be this amazing.. :-)Can't you just drown in this color?
I took several shots from different angles trying to show you how tall this thing is. The white blooming tree next to it is a Hawthorn. Can you see the lilac beyond?
What a lovely time of day when the sun slants across the long shadows of the early evening. Our 2 story farmhouse seems to disappear in the green of the lawn and trees.
Sun lighting up the front porch of the farmhouse.
Standing in the same spot, I turn and get this image of the big barn dwarfed by all the trees and greenery.
I walked up the front walk to pick some Lily-of-the-Valley at it's peak perfection and looked up at all the new green of the leaves of the weeping birch and pin oak tree.
I came on in the house and filled up the vase my daughter sent to me for Mother's Day and put the fragrant flowers in water and took it into the front entry where the sun was shining in...
If you've never had a bouquet of these lilies to bury your nose in, you need to find some. We have a huge bunch of them in the front entry and I put some by the back deck too and they are thriving there.
Yesterday hubby and I went to Costco to do some shopping and I bought something that I'm embarrassed to tell you about. :-) Maybe tomorrow. :-) It's for our trip to Washington DC. For a good cause. Can you guess what it is? I hope you're having a wonderful week! I'm heading off to the pool in a few minutes! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
