The garden here evolves on a daily basis this time of year. With the mix of sunshine and rain, things are growing so fast (*ahem* like my lawn *ahem*). I find myself wanting to take a little tour every day just to see what's newly blooming, what's about to bloom, what's already fading.

The weather is mercurial. Some days we have squalls and rainstorms sweeping through the otherwise sunny days. Other times it's unrelentingly drizzly, and the flowers bend under the weight of all the water.

My favorite days are when it's a little bit of both, a little but sunny, a little bit rainy. Then the light does amazing things, and the sky does, too. Today was a day like that. A little bit of rain, a little bit of sun, very pretty evening clouds. Just the kind of day to see what's going on in the garden.

The peonies are still taking turns in their Springtime dance.

Spires of foxgloves and catmint are shooting up everywhere.

And the evening clouds answer with a show of their own.

Good night, garden! I wonder what you'll look like tomorrow?

What does your garden look like right now?
