I have a dreadful case of Writer’s Blank, complicated by the type-it-in-backspace-it-out syndrome. However, I think I can just about manage a Throwback Thursday Post.
This is discouraging. The above picture is from May 2017. In May 2020, my rhododendron has not a bloom to be seen.
Another flower I have not seen yet this year are my irises. However, since this picture is from June 2017, I do not despair.
We are also waiting for our daisies. I’m seeing a lot of greenery for them, so I live in hope.
Last year I did not get any peonies at all. I think something came along and ate the whole bush. How greedy! However, since I am known to hog down a lot of goodies myself, I suppose I should not criticize.
Here are my forget-me-nots, which look about like this now. I previously said they were only out front this year, having inexplicably moved from the back yard. However, today I noticed that they are also out back. I am delighted to have these flowers spreading out and taking over my lawn. I even dare to hope that they will obviate my need to mow, but that may take a few more years.
It is nice to look back on flowers past. I look forward to more in the future. I hope to visit the Flower Barn in Ilion to purchase some to plant. I will certainly make a blog post about it when I so.
