Peonies, Iris, Swallows.... and more
We're enjoying a lush spring here, thanks to soaking rains in April. Look at our peonies, they just opened up. The colors are almost garish! You'll also see an Iris card I made from my beloved scraps. Our Iris are in full bloom too. And graduation is this weekend....
The garden is sprouting and we planted new trees in our yard: 2 redbuds and 1 cherry. mmmmmm. Dad's tomato plants go in the garden today: Snow's lily bulbs too.
Our barn swallows are back. There is a pair that take up residence on our front porch every spring and stay through the summer. They are already sitting on the nest so we will have chirping babies soon.
