April Showers Bring May Flowers

April Showers Bring May Flowers

This saying is very true at my house. May is very colorful here. We have the sweetest pink roses blooming right now. The smell is so wonderfully fragrant. I wish I could just bottle it up for later in they year! I am unsure of the variety, they were here when we moved in.
We also have pink, red and white peonies. Red Roses, wild roses, sweet william in a variety of shades.
The mountain laurel is in bloom along with the purple wisteria and Irises.

We have had a few days of rain and the petals started falling off of some of the flowers so I decided to see if I could capture a few in their beauty by drying them. I will take pictures of the flowers on the plants when the rain lets up.

 The most wonderful smelling Rose
white peonies, pink and red roses and sweet williams

Hopefully they will dry nicely. Every time I walk near that spot in the house it smells like a rose garden!
