Friday Finds May 9

After a smashing trip to Santa Fe I returned home to find several flowers about to open. I held my breathe when we left hoping the peonies wouldn't peak while I was away. Perfect timing!

Four years ago I had planted what I thought was a white peony. It finally had one bud last year that froze to my dismay. But this year it has about a dozen blooms and they are soft pale pink! 

A gerbera that was planted last year was strutting it's stuff.

I finally broke down and bought an agapanthus, it's still in my garage because we've had such nasty windy dirty days. But it's beginning to open.

My Gemini rose has it's first bloom.

To top it off the cardinals are hanging around pretty close. So we'll be getting a feeder or set up another bird bath so I can get some better shots.

The simple things are absolutely the best!
