Every time that I get almost caught up, I fall back behind. (I wrote this on June 6th, 2018 and it is January 1st, 2019.)
I always enjoy walking around and seeing the blooms.
The Japanese peony below only had a couple of blooms this year.
But they were very pretty.
The dogs enjoyed following me around the yard.
I nearly missed this traditional bloom hiding in the shade behind the house.
They are tiny yet perfectly formed.
It is a shame to have these beautiful flowers behind the house.
I was glad to see my trimming didn't totally kill the shrubs
