WHAT'S BLOOMING NOW ???

Well we missed all the promised rain of last night and the sun is shining this morning.
After chores I took a long walk in the humid morning sunshine,it is already 75 at 10:00 so there goes those nice cool days !!
I noticed the Elderberries are blooming all around the farm so the birds will be happy in a few weeks to have all those little berries to eat.

The butterflies should be happy also as the Butterfly bushes are starting to bloom abundantly.


This wild Rhododendron or Laurel bush that I moved out of the woods into this bed when we first built this house is blooming.


The fields are full of Queen Annes Lace this time of year.

This Crown Vetch is blooming among the poison ivy leaves on the driveway bank.

 And the air around our house smells wonderful as the Mimosa trees are filled with these fragrant feathery blossoms.
I love this time of year !!

After a day filled with laundry,house cleaning, weed pulling, and raking 2 loads of dirt around for a pull out on the driveway I was rewarded with these  fresh vegetables from my garden for supper tonight.

After we ate we helped #2 son bring some of his things up to our basement to store for him until he finds a new house.
It has threatened rain all afternoon but not a drop fell here and the temperature got in the low 80's with high humidity for a really muggy day.

Praying tonight for a some of my cousin's who lost their mother yesterday. She was 83 and had been sick for quite a while so she is much better off today. It is still hard to let go of your mom so they have my prayers tonight as they deal with this loss.
Grateful to God for the blessings of the day and the strength He gives me each day.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, No rain here last night or today either. We never did get much this week---so they were REALLY wrong in their prediction.

Love all of your blooming trees/flowers/bushes... The wild Rhodies are so gorgeous.

Your fresh veggies look delicious.
Hugs,
Betsy

All your greenery looks so lush..
This morning mine finally does too.
We got 2 nice days of rain-- fairly soft so it was able to seep into the ground versus running off like the hard rains were doing.

We sure live in a beautiful state..
Thanks for sharing your area with us.
