Each fairy breath of summer, as it blows with loveliness, inspires the blushing rose.
Here's what happened in the gardens this past week.
|Crazy Daisy is blooming under the diningroom windows.|
|My bold purchase.....a Larkspur. We'll see if I can grow it in this climate.|
|I purchased this little creeper in May and it's still blooming and growing very well!|
|This Spring, I gave the Lavender a good haircut and all the plants are doing great.|
|Gaillardia is a nice spot of color throughout the big garden.|
|Dahlia's are starting to bloom.|
|Ox-eyes and Shasta Daisies|
Daylilies are coming!
|I think this beautiful Lemon yellow Daylily was a markdown rescue.|
|A deeper yellow Daylily|
|Let's hope the Shasta Daisies fill out by next year!|
There are a good amount of carpenter bees and other pollinators in the garden but, very few butterflies.
|Fluorescent green bug. I don't know what it is but it's pretty.|
|There's a bee nestled in the Evening Primrose.|
|This bird yelled at Idgie and I while we enjoyed the garden the other morning. It gave us "what for" for a good twenty minutes. I looked around for a nest and couldn't see one.|
