Join me in my garden

I sat in my sewing room most of the morning cutting out bears. The fur was just a flyin' until later in the day that is.

I have a window that overlooks my front garden. I love flowers, but I don't have much of a green thumb......I plant things and if they grow it is a miracle because they get no assistance from me. I just let mother nature take over lol. However, I've been watching an iris as it prepared to open , and this morning I noticed one leaf unfold. To my surprise by the afternoon it was in full bloom and so beautiful. This is the first time it has bloomed in 2 years . I put away the bear bits and pieces and grabbed my camera .
As I looked around I decided to photograph some of the other flowers in bloom around my garden . There aren't many but they are so colorful.

My rhododendron is in bad shape really, but a there are few blooms. I really should take better care of this poor bush.

I love the fushia clematis. I also have a purple on in the backyard. I noticed that most of the plants right now are blooming purple or pink....funny that.

Of course there were lots of bees buzzing around collecting pollen. This guy stopped long enough for me to snap his picture :) I love his fuzzy back lol.

Thanks for joining my in the garden. Tomorrow it I'll get back to trimming bear seams and maybe get some sewing done. Who knows. I have a few other things that need to be done first.
