Checking for Growth

My favorite thing to do in the spring and summer is walk around my yard to see what's new. I do this almost every day. Sometimes twice!

We have had a gentle rain the last few days and it gave my garden a huge boost. Look what I found today -

Some plants are sprouting out of one of the mounds in the garden. Time will tell if this is the zucchini, pumpkins, canteloupe, or squash!

Green beans are looking good!

I planted the peas awhile ago when we had the early warm spell. They are diggin' the cool weather and growing tall.

And one last beautiful peony. I've enjoyed their deep fragrance and elegant beauty in the yard the last few weeks. They remind me of my grandmothers.
