Backyard in Bloom

Four o’clock is referred to as the witching hour at our house. By four in the afternoon our little Z has had it with the day, she: gets hungry, gets thirsty, gets bored, gets antsy, and could really use a nice distraction. So, at four o’clock most days you’ll see us around town running errands, at the park, riding her *bike, or – if we’re especially desperate – just walking around our yard, doing laps around the house, picking up sticks, investigating the grass and other such exciting things. One recent four o’clock hour Z and I were making our way around the yard and I happened to take notice of all sorts of pretty blooms in our yard! I got out my camera and snapped some pics to share with you!

red-rose

Red roses! I didn’t even know we had this plant. I vaguely remember buying a rose plant when we first bought our house almost five years ago, but I thought it died. Apparently not. There were buds everywhere, I can’t wait to have home-grown red roses in our house soon.

 

white-rhododendron

We also have white rhododendron in our side yard!

 

peony-with-ants

Peonies are just my favorite flower. Here is one plant with the magical ants all over it getting the plant ready to bloom.

 

peony-almost-in-bloom

Here is another just about ready to pop.
