Rain or Shine


Hello Everyone,
Blessed indeed!! This is yesterday, Easter.  While the girls were hunting eggs I was photographing the progress of the garden in just one week. 
Today is Monday and it's raining and even some hail came down.


Last week the poppies were closed, but today they are open
and the sun is shining on the pansies reflecting a beautiful light shade of violet.


Oh my gosh I have bugs eating my artichokes before I get a chance to have a bite.


I love the 'California Poppy' our state flower.


Nothing beautiful lasts long enough.
This I know for sure.
Thank goodness for DSLR

Thank you so much for visiting My Cozy Corner today.
I love the outdoors and enjoy sharing my garden with you all!
I'm joining

  13. Love the Iris - this is a beautiful color or colors. Poppies are always on my list of flowers to get but somehow I always miss out! Love yours - spectacular photos - and yes, it passes by too fast! Thankful to photographs and to blogging! Great way to journal the garden!
