My Guideposts - Week82

One of the secrets of a happy life is continuous small treats.
  —Iris Murdoch

Isn't that almost the exact description of a garden in springtime?!  (Yes'm, it's still spring here even if it is June.)

We're currently in the iris-are-almost-done-blooming, peonies-have-opened and roses-have-just-started phase of springtime. And the one above is reminiscent of a fancy English rose but was labeled simply "Double Pink" when we bought it many years ago.  

I think gardeners must be the happiest people on earth!
