May Showers...

If April showers bring May flowers...what do May showers bring?

Mud...  Frustration...  Worry...

But in the midst of it all...BEAUTY...

I sent Jenna on a mission tonight during milking to take some pictures of what's blooming right now in our flower beds.  These are some of my favorites...

Johnson's Blue Cranesbill Geranium...

I enjoy the many varieties of Iris that we have.  Most of them were given to us by a neighbor years ago, and they've multiplied...

This Geum...not typically my favorite color...has grown on me with it's cheerful face...

I love the water drops on these Coral Bells...

The Lilacs smell wonderful...

So...even though we've been drenched with between five and six inches of rain this's wonderful to find God's beauty in the midst of it all!
