Around this time last year, I remember doing a spring flower post to show off my little foster dog Collette among the azaleas and roses.
Actually, it was a little earlier last year, as its been an unusually cool spring. Last year, there was a blast of color as everything came into bloom all at once.
This year, things have been trickling into flower gradually.
So this is a slightly more mellow post, as is fitting to accompany a much more mellow foster dog.
There is quite the profusion of intense purples and blues.
I was sure I wouldn't have Lady for long, as she is a mellow older non-pittie in a town of hyperactive young pitties. I sure thought she would be adopted at the adoption event we went to last weekend, but it was a rainy day and very few people ended up coming to the event.
All that rain is good for the flowers, but has also cooled things down and slowed the flowering. Which is kind of nice, as we get to enjoy them for longer.
I would not say that I have a very green thumb, as I seem to get distracted easily and I can't focus on the garden long enough to get it thoroughly weeded and looking organized.
But I maintain it enough that it brings me joy to look at it.
OK, you inspired me. Time to go weed for a bit!
