The Look of Spring

I love this time of year when the weather is warming up and things are starting to bloom and grow! One of my favorites, although short-lived, are the peonies. We have three varieties--this dark pink one being my favorite!

The raspberry bushes are loaded! Hubby ate three yesterday! Can't wait to have enough for Raspberry Lemonade!

Calendula makes a bright spot in the flower bed! 

Yummy figs are coming on; ready to ripen:)

And my lavender plants are doing oh, so well! I would like to plant a couple of other varieties of lavender this year. 

With Spring also comes allergies which aren't so much fun. Yesterday and today I had a bad sinus headache even after taking allergy medicine. Oh well, this too shall pass!

Later, I will be back with a card or two! See you then!
