Clematis is blooming!
Lilly of the Valley...
always makes me think of my mom; it was one of her wedding flowers
Iris of yellow and purple are just opening up
Peonies (our early variety) color the landscape
Soapwart is starting it's season
Colorado's state flower,
is popping up all over the place!
and even in double!
and Chives, anyone who grows them knows this one is a love-hate situation.
So beautiful when in bloom, but if you don't cut them off quickly...chives.CHIVES EVERYWHERE! Isn't that just like life...we must manage both our blessings and our burdens, or they will take over.
