An early-morning rain. By the time the sun came up, there were just a few drops left to show it had happened.

The first bud on my lilies:

The first flower on the raspberry bushes:

The peonies are getting ready to bloom:

My "annuals" are coming back for their third summer:

It was lovely to spend the day in the garden.


  1. I think this is my favourite time of year in the garden. Your pictures do it justice.

  2. Hello Katherine!
    You asked about the sewing machine...well I have yet to use it, I know, I know, I've had it since December! My mom ordered it for me from, it's a brother, either the 10 stitch or the 14 stitch I can't remember which. I'd check, but it's currently at home (I'm up at college). Anyway check them out, both received pretty good reviews and are very affordable.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and to let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
