The garden is alive, each morning there a brilliant surprise awaits us on our morning walk. This morning the peonies were bursting open releasing there magnificent fragrance with each unfurl of a petal.
We thought the deep pink/reddish ones would open first. Mother Nature had other plans ... and the pale pink and white ones are the leaders.
Garden inhabitants are also out and about ... these little miracles paused long enough to be captured in photo.
Many of our roses are full of promising buds, but it was this rose - MY HERO - that graced us with the first glimpses of rose beauty ... appropriately in time for Father's Day ...as regular readers will recall the rose garden was planted last summer in my father's memory.
