Had a wonderful reunion with my daughters and their spouses in Maine last week. Family, the sea, nature, and relaxation. All good.

In my head, every other thought in the last few years has been prefaced with When I retire… And now it’s finally happening. July 31 will be my last day and one of the many things I look forward to is spending more time in the garden.

I never noticed before that things bloom in specific colors in my garden at one time. Most of the blues and whites have passed, pinks are going and now I have purple flowers.

I would call this a magenta pink bud tree, but that’s a mouthful.

On this morning’s walk, I was delighted by the masses of flowers in neighborhood gardens. Happy Mother’s Day

Dandelions galore, the poplar trees are beginning to leaf out and a lovely sky.

My neighbor’s tulips remind me of peonies. Spring has been exploding around here and yet, I haven’t been taking many photos. House repairs, work, always energetic dog, gardening, decisions to be made, and my pursuit of trying to learn watercolors have taken over, but trust me, I am enjoying every flower and flowering tree I see.
