April 22 - amazing evening sky - second picture only seconds after first one, and third seconds after that.

The patio gardens
June 11 - the white barn lilacs. Tom's mother gave him this for Father's Day decades ago.
Crabapple. At the top left of the picture you may see a mowing line. We are leaving half the lawn un-mowed this year. Lots of pretty wildflowers are appearing.
June 17 - Iris we transplanted into patio garden in the fall
Baptisia Australis - wild indigo
That beautiful evening light - was a blog header. This was the last picture I took of the gardens of springtime. What a spring it was. Everything bloomed abundantly and lasted a long time. It was cool and wet, with some hot, sunny days.
