I think evenings in the spring can be kind of magical. The glowy-ness that happens just as the sun goes down is one of my favorite things about this time of year.
My little old lilac bush is just about ready to burst... I can hardly wait for that incomparable fragrance when it's in bloom. In fact I'm planning a little covert mission to my son's house this week... with a bucket and some pruners. He lives just 10 minutes away, but his lilacs are a few days ahead of mine and I plan to bring some of his home... he has white and a fabulous dark purple color.
Everything is green, green, green as well... against all that green the blue skies never looked better.
My little patch of bleeding hearts is spreading and sprawling...
One of my peonies is almost there... I think by the weekend I'll be enjoying my deep red peonies in full on living color.
The pear, plum, peach, nectarine and cherry trees have all had a terrific flowering this year... the apple trees are just getting there. Who can resist an apple blossom?
And as the sun goes down in the west each night it warms up this side of the house.
That golden glow even creeps inside...
