A walk around the yard with Cohen

A walk with Cohen   reveals great changes in the yard.  The peonies are in full bloom, they look grand and smell absolutely wonderful.  

The sweet smelling honeysuckle blooms give no indication of the problem this vine is.  But, I must admit there is nothing like the aroma of  honeysuckle on the humid summer night air.
This mock orange has the whitest of white blooms.  They seem to be glowing with sun light from within rather   than reflecting it.. 
 These Siberian Iris are in the iris bed at one end of the pool area.

Murphy, being  his ever diligent self,  is following  Cohen as he explores the yard.
Cohen stops for a moment as he hears a Mockingbird singing from the crab apple tree.
This old fashioned  rose bush is one of many around Margaret's property.
Here Margaret takes a short break from her yard work.  She likes to get out early in the morning while it is still cool.  After a few hours weeding and clearing flower beds she is ready for her lunch and a nap.
