End of May Blooms

The dark pink rose with the yellow center is a rambler rose that I do not know the name of. It blooms once in late spring. The light pink rose with tons of blooms is a fairy rose. The one large pink bloom is a Peony that grows very tall and falls over when it rains. The rain stains the unopened blooms and turns them an ugly brown. And I had to post my pansies as it is getting in the upper 80's and they will be pulled up soon.
Enjoy nature and enjoy life.

I'm Free!!!!!!

I just finished the last final exam today. I will be resting my poor tired eyes and brain for a while. I must say that I am happy to have one year behing me. I would have never thought that I would be in graduate school.
I have done so many things this year and I look forward to going on vacation at the end of May. I am going to Disneyland!!! Life is good if you look at the good. I enjoyed teaching my first seminar. I pray for more good things to come.
On blogs people try to be controversial, but I just will be me. I am a simple country gal. Oh, yeah, my summer attire is going to be dresses. I usually wear shorts, but I think I will be cooler in the 100 degree summer heat. And I will be taking 3 classes this summer at Seminary.
So heres to being free for a while. I will make the most of it by gardening and sleeping. I think I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome because I sleep alot.
I plan to stop with the sodas. One of my professors said how obesity bothered him because it represented a lack of discipline in the Christian life. Obese people are so hated in America and there are so many of us. What is normal anymore. Things that once shocked people now resides on the coffee table.
To all those graduating from anything any where; join me in a happy shout "I'M FREE!!!!!

Favorite blooms so far in May 2008

I planted a planter with the Asiatic Lilies of deep maroon which I love and wish would last all season. The planter has Dusty Miller, Lantana, a purple haunging vine to fill in while the lilies are not in bloom but cannot yet be cut down. The purple is my first Clematis which has at least four big blooms on it. I planted it about three weeks ago and it is doing well. The white is a frilly Shasta Daisy that I cannot wait to divide next spring. It is a new addition this week. I love the peach roses and try to have at least one in my garden. This one was added last year. And finally my pink Peonies are getting ready to bloom. The bush is tall and the blooms are too huge to stay upright. I have staked it, but I don't know how much that will help. I moved two peonies that I thought had died years ago, but they peeped up this spring and I put them in a better place of pampering. Well, stayed tuned weekly as usuall to see what is going on in my world.
