These flowers are so bright that they seem to glow in the morning light.
My Last on Card for July was my sweet girl; she just got a summer haircut to keep cool. Isn’t she cute?

It’s really spring when this bloom opens up.
This year the bush only has one bloom. This peony was here when we moved in 34 years ago. The maple has grown up and is shading it so the plant has gone leggy. I’m trying to root a cutting to check out a new location. It was blooming the day we brought our son home from the hospital when he was born, 32 years ago.
Peek-a-boo view of the sun setting over Colvos Passage on Puget Sound and the Kitsap Peninsula.
In a world of spring pastel blossoms and the bright red/orange/yellow of many tulips this tiny bright blue flower can be overlook, especially when they are in the shade. The sun hit it just so on our mornign walk to make if catch my eye. I’m not sure what it is.
