More blooms!  The blue pincushion flower in the cutting garden has one bloom and many buds about to open and the wisteria and azaleas are in full bloom.  

The majority of the dogwoods are at their peak, as graceful and beautiful as ever.  One of my favorites is not even in our yard, but hangs over the fence from the neighbor's side.  But I also love the  dogwood in the front circle. 

The weekend rain washed away much of the yellow film of pine pollen from our deck and cars, and now we await the stringy discards of the chestnut oak tree.  

Unfortunately,  our lawn looks pretty sad.  We think we'll start replacing big areas of it with shrubs, plants, and pinestraw!
