Watching the flowers grow

Sorry we were gone for so long, Princess fell off the computer chair, into the computer
desk, knocking teeth loose. Fortunately, they were baby teeth.She is recovering,
but needing a bit more one on one care than normal.
Here are some photos from the last couple of days around the yard.
Many of the roses are flowering, the "pink lemon aid" honeysuckle too.
This Cecil Brunner (sp?)rose is spreading across the fence on one side of the yard,
Farmer Dad was not a fan, dumped it there, and despite him, it is thrivingit fills Princess's windows with cute pinkness!We also have some

flowers from Farmer Dad's childhood home,

Things in pots that were purchased at Lowes last year right before they went into
a dumpster, for about $.35...yes..that cents!

Some old horse radish in the garden is flowering too

I missed the azaleas, but here is one of the rhododendrons

It is the smallest one on our property, and the only one of this color.
What's blooming near you?
