School ended this week, so some pictures are of the events, and some are of my flowers :)
Roses have started blooming. These are a very deep red/pink. They are the hardest color for me to photograph. I'm honestly not sure if these are the Morden Roses or the Vancouver ones (I have two rose bushes). But they are loaded with buds.
Rainbow! Finally caught this one one night. The sun was finally setting about 10:30 pm and while it was raining, I could see the entire bow in the sky. Spectacular are God's wonders!
This shot will not do the "real-life being there" justice, but it was the same rainstorm from the front of the yard with the sunset. The golden glow and shine off the wet street was amazing. It was still raining even as I took this shot. I wish I could capture THAT! :)
Last day of school. PLEASE ignore my son's crazy outfit. It was track and field day and his teams' colors were multi-colored, so he went to town. You can't see his red socks too :) This lovely lady was his teacher for two years. She's made such an investment into him as a learner and leader. She has championed him in such wonderful ways. It will be hard not to have her next year, she was just one of those teachers that really "got" my kid :) We're so grateful!
Awards Night! This son has grown so much as a learner the past two years. He set goals for himself last year and this year and has surpassed them on so many levels and I'm so very proud of him. School isn't his favourite thing, he'd much rather be playing sports, and yet he's so bright, and he's learned some great skills academically this year in the Academic Challenge program he was accepted to. It was accelerated learning and really thrived in it.
Asters, with a little marigolds mixed in. Such a pretty mix! And my burgundy iris' in the background are about done!
Siberian Iris. What a beautiful flower. One of my favourites for the spikey tall greenery and the soft blooms. We've had some gorgeous days this week and I've loved watching my yard bloom!
Thanks for sharing my week with me!
