More May flowers

It's been a busy weekend between church and writing on the novel.  And today is a beautiful sunshiny day to enjoy the outdoor flowers.  Our Sensation Lilacs are blooming. Yes, I have a bouquet sitting in front of me right now. And we bought 2 Beauty of Moscow lilacs to plant on the south side of the house to give us shade and some privacy from the busy corner near us. 

Here is one of my peony bushes. It's very short stemmed. 

And here is my neighbor's beautiful azalea. I've not seen one in our area before but it's gorgeous.
