Garden Delights

My mother's clematis is absolutely gorgeous this year.
I don't think I have ever seen it with so many blooms!
And the peonies from my grandmother's home place that I transplanted along our driveway are as fragrant and as beautiful as ever.

I love these old fashioned ones.  They smell so much nicer than the new hybrid ones that I have mixed them with.

And look what has made a nest in the Rhododendrons under our dining room window! 
The cardinals are back after a two year hiatus when a hawk took their nest.  This nest seems to be a little less conspicuous so hopefully we'll have little babies soon!
I love my garden in bloom!

Oh! I just want to come and hang out in the garden. Would that be a problem? Love the peonies! They are so pretty.
