Lots of rain again last night. This morning’s sunshine glitters on every wet leaf and petal. The air is so clean you could bathe in it. It is the height of the flowering season. Perennial lilies, delphinium, catmint, day lilies, bellflower, yarrow, and roses are all blending their colors in a beautiful mosaic. In their pots the annual petunias, snapdragons, cosmos, and phlox crowd each other for space to show off. Having a big country yard is hard work and it will never be perfect like the little city ones but I will put up with a little grass in the flower beds. It is still paradise out there!
