While tending the garden today, I was struck by how sweet the pea blossoms are.

snow pea blossoms

Fuchsia and delicate pink.

early alaskan pea blossoms

Demure white.

pea blossoms

White, that upon closer look gives way to the palest of green.


And then, I got carried away. The peonies have popped.

fucshia peony

Pretty in pink.

wild daisys

Wild daisies dancing around the pond.

chive flowers

Honey bees sipping from the chives.


Cheery violas.

white cosmos

Cool cosmos.


And the last of the lupines.

The lilacs have faded, but soon the lavender will lend its soothing scent to the garden.
