This the word I would use to describe how I feel right now.  An abundance of good things.  Good people at work.  Good work at work.  Returning customers who make me laugh out loud.  Remember I told you there was never enough of that in my life these days.  And it's time for the peonies to blossom. They are ready to explode in petals and that lovely peony scent.

And because I always want to make you happy--- here is the view I have after working in the vegetable garden and coming up to the back of the house and the "stoop".  Weigelia (two of them which are only blossoming on the garage wall side) but usually have lots of rosy pink flowers.  Pink, again.  Inbetween is a new spirea with tiny white flowers like little dots.  There's a new rhodie between those three sticks (our attempt to keep the deer from eating the buds).  I don't remember what color this rhodie is but that looks suspiciously like a pink flower to the left of the left side sticks but perhaps it's just the flowers on the chives.

Speaking of abundance.  Plant chives once and you will never be without them.  Well, I guess you also need to let them flower so they can seed themselves all over.

At 2:30, the sky was blue, the sun was shining and there wasn't a cloud in sight.  At 3:30 the sky was dark and the rain was pelting down as I tried to drive home.  As soon as I stopped at the first red light, I could see that the storm was nearly over.  No rain on the last part of the trip.  My car is very clean.  And the air is also cleaner.  So much pollen in the air.  Hard to breathe.

I need to start dinner.  Jamie Oliver's mushroom pasta.  I may even have some. Whoop!!!  Living dangerously.  But happy.

It really feels like summer abundance is all around us today, even with the thundershowers. Your yard looks beautiful, and shows all the hard work you've put into it.
