Yes, the yard keeps blooming and all sorts of things have been popping up - or finally blooming anyway. The fruits are growing and ripening too - such a wonderful time of year!
After waiting for months (it seemed) our peonies finally bloomed, two big bushes of pink and one of white.
Our kitalpa tree suddenly burst into bloom last weekend. It is a sight to see.
As promised, here is a picture of our rose bush in full bloom.
One of the few flowers we purchased, but we just had to have nasturtiums!
Yet another mystery flower. This is more of a vine and I've found it curling up a fence in the back, and one in the front. Anyone know what it is?
Solomon's Seal. We've just got this one, but there are several false Solomon's Seal around too. I've seen some better ones, as far as all the bell-like flowers hanging off it. Perhaps it will be better next year.
Is this the infamous Bellflower? Or something else entirely? I'm not sure. It's probably another "weed," but I think it's lovely (even though it's growing behind our garage).
And now for the aforementioned fruits. Our raspberries have been growing and I just saw today that some are starting to look like this!
Our cherries have been growing bigger and turning red. Some of them feel like they might be ripe - I'm not sure when to pick them. Most people who come by the house pick one to try - and then pucker up like they've bitten into a lemon. These are definitely sour pie cherries!
With all this greenery come bugs and insects of all kinds, very colorful too. I've seen monarchs flying around many days now, after our milkweeds.
I think there are more chapters still to come!
