Can you believe it’s already June? Prior to today, I’ve only posted two What’s Blooming Wednesday posts in 2014 I guess you can tell we haven’t been in the yard as much this year.
North Mississippi weather has been rainy a lot the past week. Would you look at these clouds? (You may recognize this picture from Sunday morning’s post.) It all looks farther away in the picture, but it hovered right overhead.
It was an amazing cloud! And the rain wall right there with it. Look. At. That.
The picture above also is a nice shot of the soybeans growing in the fields. Those crop rows can give you a sense of order – a blessing of living in the country.
You can smell the sweetness of the Crepe Myrtle blooms. During the day time, the bumble bees are buzzing around them like crazy!
The entire yard smells just like honey!
Last night at our dinner table, we enjoyed the first hydrangea bloom that formed recently. The early bloom is on the small side, but isn’t it pretty, regardless?
We had a few other blooms on the hydrangea bushes. I love how my bushes grow all different colors, from blues to purples, and pinks. This green bloom hasn’t colored out completely, but I enjoy all the stages of coloring.
I thought this bush died at the end of last year, but it’s showing a little bit of life. (Although Morticia from The Adams Family would love this bush!)
Now I need to decide if it’s worth salvaging the plant. Hmm…how many years will it take to grow back to its original size?
The clematis is blooming nicely. These little flowers are so cheerful.
An elephant ear is peeking out. The ground in front has a nice blanket of Creeping Jenny, and the native fern beside it is blooming for the first time.
A friend shared that fern with me two years ago, so it’s been settling in. Don’t you love getting pass-along plants?
On the south side of the house, I found the Black-eyed Susans blooming. Patches of them are growing everywhere from natural re-seeding.
There were sprigs starting to grow in the yard, too, but HH mowed over them. Those seeds really travel far with the Fall falling. Oh, I just noticed in the bottom right corner of the picture above, the chives are blooming. The sun was setting, so I was in a bit of a hurry taking these pictures last evening.
Speaking of the sun setting, it was beautiful! Now, why didn’t I get a picture of that?
So, what’s blooming in your yard? Let’s talk about it through the comments, and please share what part of the country you’re in. I can hardly wait to hear from you! 🙂
Thank you for visiting! ~ Just a note to remind you to follow me through RSS feed, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, or Hometalk. Also, I’d love it if you shared Curtain Queen Creates with all your sweet friends. Thanks, y’all.
