Woodland Flowers . . .

Found a bunch of this blue in the woods a bit ago. Such a pretty blue . . .
Looks like a small violet but think it is something else.
And oh my . . . the ferns are so beautiful right now!

My ostrich ferns are scrumptious . . .

Helebores, Lenten Rose . . . full, many, bunches, varieties . . .
Makes me feel so thankful when these flowering gems return year after year after year.
It's the little things that give such joy . . .

We have a few Rhoddie's in the yard . . .
Used to be a favorite . . . now . . . not so much.
Not complaining though when a huge corner of the yard is a burst of pink . . .

My youngest grand Jordon is a grad . . .

Memorial Day isn't just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives.
Veterans had the fortune of coming home.
For us, that's a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve.
It's a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.

Hello, Lynne! Your ferns are beautiful. Love all the greenery. Our Rhododendrons have seen their day, I think some of these past winters did a number on them.
Congrats to your grandson! God Bless our soldiers that gave us their lives, they are missed. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

Hi Lynne, your gardens and yard look so lush and green. Rhododendrons are beautiful when in bloom but kind of boring after that. :-/ Especially when they start to die out and have bare limbs. You have a handsome grandson. They grow up so fast! I will be taking a blogging break (maybe permanent - see my post today) for the summer. I can't keep up with it anymore. And I'm tired. I'll try to check in now and then and visit. I appreciate your friendship and comments over the years Lynne. God bless. Hugs. Pam
