I enjoy photography and find it nearly impossible to pass by beautiful flowers without stopping to take photos. These were taken yesterday at my BFF’s home in Traverse City Michigan where I spent a fabulous extended weekend.
After today’s rain there was a reprieve. I stepped out to capture the beauty of new blossoms, decorated with raindrops that glisten like diamonds.
My dwarf lilac bushes, planted in April of 2021 have burst into bloom for the first time. What a debut!
Even my perennial sage is full of buds which are on the verge of opening…
And my final photo today is a wider shot of the Peony Tree that is breathtaking as it continues to steal the show with its nonstop blooming.
Less than a week ago I was in flip flops…today it’s been snowing all day and I’m back to wearing Uggs.
While there is a chill in the air in Michigan, a combination of rain and sunny days has kept my garden flourishing. A freeze is imminent so I’m getting some photos of the last beautiful blooms …while I can. Enjoy!
Sunshine, blue skies, warming temps and light steady rains are making my garden “pop” back to life, with blooms emerging from under last autumn’s leaves. Here’s a few flowers that brightened my Tuesday.
A week of extremely hot weather including several soaking rainstorms sent my garden into overdrive. Multiple varieties of lilies, my first hydrangea and black-eyed Susan blossoms and every variety of hostas sent up their blooms. This gallery represents a stroll through my garden today.
After seemingly endless rain we’ve had two gorgeous, sunny days and my garden is responding with enthusiasm.
