Abundance.

And the Lord sayeth...”TROUT LILY!!!!!”

And lo, the angels did smile.

The back of our house is insane.

In the foreground, way down low, we have purple...the vinca, aka myrtle.

Just next to them and bit taller, an insane quantity of this frivolity:

Next to that, a hilarity of azalea:

TODAY is THE day for this almost-open look, where the color is the most saturated. Tomorrow this will all be different.

And behind it all looms the rhody, aswarm with bumble bees.

In the meantime, let us not forget the tulips.

Gahhhhh.

And the downward-facing ... lily? dunno. These shots are not upside-down.

What the hell. Can I get an amen?

And just across the gravel path? More of this:

AND I saw ruby-throated hummingbirds at the feeder today. AND I talked to a woman at a local ‘wellness center’ – massage, facials, etc. – and will be their first Reiki practitioner. AND we sold two out of three of our ancient cars – the Golden Buick went off to Michele on the back of some tractor trailer so large, it had to be parked out on the main road cause it couldn’t get up our hill; and the Escape went to this nice guy who handed over a wad of cash. He’ll be back shortly to pick it up.

What a day, what a day. We are blessed.
