It’s the season of so many flowers now.
Our peonies are blooming at last and seem to be more abundant this year. The daylilies are blooming away from Lake Michigan, and the plants and leaves are growing strong here in the yard.
Karl and I went for a walk in the neighborhood yesterday. I enjoyed seeing wildflowers and the different ways people garden – from the formal to the more wild. All so lovely.

A favorite haiku I wrote another year.
A few more of my favorite haiku about wildflowers:
loved for years
and now I know your name
how does it stay
so regal on this day?
Queen Anne’s Lace
goldenrod and roses
refreshed by rain
