It's been a BUSY week - Don was in the hospital since Sunday - mysteriously sick and then our great team of doctors (6 in all) worked their magic and figured out the problem. While it is a serious problem it is easily fixed over time and he is now home - sitting across the room from me, reading his kindle (as life should be).
In celebration I thought I'd show you some of the pretty flowers that are blooming right now.
There are thousands of Dogwood trees in Bellingham - some bloomed early and some are just now blooming
Roses along a fence in a small town named Lyman - not far from here - spectacular!
Many find the wild Morning Glories to be a pest - unless you can use them decoratively like along this fence, also in Lyman - very clever.
Poppies are beginning to bloom
More Dogwood trees
And more soft, papery petaled Poppies.
What is this????? I've seen it growing wild along some roads but this was the first time I saw it in a garden - do you know what it is, besides wonderful?
And Foxgloves everywhere - in yards and alongside the roads and covering hillsides - and on my deck in pots.
The legend is that the fairies would come out at night and use the flowers for their gloves at the fancy moonlight balls - and the flowers were called "Wee Folk's Gloves" - and soon became shortened to Foxgloves.
