    1. That is so true, Peter! Most of the photos in this post are so out of date, but I've been collecting "promise" memories for several weeks now. For some reason, I'm noticing them even more this year--though, I've always appreciated those moments just before the "big events" of nature. :)

    1. I think you may have found me from the WW link? Isn't that a fun meme? Yes, gardening in a cooler zone is challenging for some of the months. Not so much during the summer, though. :)

    1. Agreed! And I'm a little late with replies, so these things have now "happened." Time to seek out some new items of "promise." ;-)

  10. These photos are all so lovely Beth. The first one reminds me of the tomato flowers which i haven't seen again for quite sometime.

    1. Thanks! Yes, I guess the yellow of the Rudbeckia is similar to the yellow of Tomato flowers. I really enjoy Tomato flowers, too!

    1. Thanks, Hollis! The yellow-orange and purple-blue are pretty together, aren't they? You are welcome--I'm a little late in my response with crazy happenings around here lately. Still plenty of time to enjoy the flowers. ;-)
