We are into the full bloom of summer and it is so soft on the eyes. As I was finishing the lawn, I just had to stop to see the colors of the yard shining brightly.

The way up the driveway has the day lilies and iris, a contrast in orange and blue.

Th azaleas are past bloom and we enjoyed the reds, pinks, and the white colors.   The rhododendrons are starting to come out  The pinks are always the first and then the whites will follow.

Our colors will be there for the next few weeks and then the next group of blossoms will take over.

What wonderful photos to capture the beauty of spring in New England. Irises are one of my favorites but we don't see a lot of them here, certainly not the abundance we had back in the Boston area. Glad you took some time to stop and enjoy, and thank you for sharing

Hi Ed, So pretty and now our lilies are in bloom. Our irises are gone and done their thing but the roses just go on and on.

Ed, I know that we are fully heading towards summer, but I must embrace some of those spring "hold-outs" who offer us such vibrant happiness! 

Thank you for the eye candy.
