This lovely purple flower bush in the backyard leads things off. When I look out my kitchen window in April and see it starting to bloom, I know spring has arrived. I love the yellow buds on the trees in the background too.
No flowers here, just the beauty of nature and my little boy at the edge of the woods in the backyard.
Flowers that bloomed in summer
I love this dogwood tree. When it's in bloom (July), all I can see when I look out my front bedroom window are its pretty white blossoms and verdant green leaves.
This orange flower is all over the place in New England during the summer.
Giant hostas that line the front walk. Here they are before they bloom, when they're still pretty tame:
And here they are after they bloom. They get so huge and droopy, and then they shed their petals all over the place.
Sun-drenched greenery that I can never get enough of.
I really do love these flowers, plants, and trees. Nature puts on such a stunning show every summer. It always reminds me of what a masterful creator and artist God is.
Although summer is my favorite season, I can't deny the intense beauty of fall's red, yellow, and orange foliage. I'm definitely looking forward to that happening in the next few weeks!
