I need to start by wishing Jay a happy birthday, so happy birthday Jay!
I hope your birthday is as amazing as you want it to be!
Here is a collection of pictures I took in my backyard in the middle of May:
The picture of the peony bud is bittersweet. I planted peonies in my yard about 3 years ago. I probably didn’t pick the best spot for them because they have never bloomed. In fact, that peony bud is the first time it has budded. One single bud. I was super excited, but then the bud never bloomed. It kind of just withered on the vine. Maybe next year.
