Spring has been off to a slow start. Not surprising with all the cold and rain. But it seems to have finally arrived in time for Bloom Day. Not near as many plants are in bloom this year, compared to last year, but I’m sure enjoying what is showing off.
Bloom Day – July 2016
Every year at this time I have mixed thoughts about our flowerbeds. I love all the blooms. The flowers are beautiful. But, as a whole, the beds are very unkept and overgrown.
