These lilacs have been a labor of love – the labor of moving them around several times to find the right spot to help them grow…for the love of the intoxicating fragrance {don’t you wish this was smell-o-vision?}.

The irises we have at Le Homestead were transplanted 6 years ago with nothing but green foliage year after year. Finally, after expert gardener tips and moving to a new spot – this year they are blooming. This particular specimen bloomed inside as pesky snails chomped its stem.

Snow peas begin their climb. I’ve been crafting rustic garden markers from re-purposed wooden lattice, dowels, acrylic paint and paint markers.
