My pansies love this gray,cold and dreary weather....
...But my peonies don't. One bloom has managed to survive the storms.
My trusty and heady scented lilac
And how happy was I when I spotted my Scotch broom blooming. The scent is heaven!
Observe this dew-drenched rose of Tyrian gardens
A rose today. But you will ask in vain
Tomorrow what it is; and yesterday
It was the dust, the sunshine, and the rains.
