Excited but a Little Sad

We are heading for a "glamping" outing for five days!  This is our first camping adventure this year.  We are meeting up with eight other couples so it should be a lot of fun.  That is my excitement to share!

The sad thing, my flowers are about to "pop".  My most favorite flower of the year is peonias.
They are ready to pop and will probably do so while we are gone!
I also purchased a new perennial this spring - a yellow lupine and that is nearly in full bloom.

 My oriental poppies - if it gets real warm - they will be blooming.
And a surprise visitor from nature.....a Jack in the Pulpit....I think I have a lady slipper also.
I hope Mother Nature is kind to me and slows the blooming process a wee bit~


  1. Barbie . . . A Jack in the Pulpit is a big deal! Where did you find it? I had them in Montague, but never here . . . congrat's!

    I hope you don't have rain on your trip!

  2. Have a great trip...Mother Nature waits for no one, but think of all the wonderful things you'll see on your trip and the memories you'll make! Ask someone to take some photos for you! Happy trails! Love, Penny
