Flower power

We’ve had a lot of rain this summer —

And it’s been wonderful discovering the different flowers in the garden.

Raindrops are beautiful kisses

On the petalled lips of tulips,

While bringing out the fragrance

Of the lilacs.

    I love how you said that, Fiona! Stunning photographs! The color you captured is incredible!

    And I can literally smell those lilacs from here 🙂

    Have a beautiful week, my friend!
