I’m dedicating this post to my fabulous and frilly poppies.
After today’s rain there was a reprieve. I stepped out to capture the beauty of new blossoms, decorated with raindrops that glisten like diamonds.
My dwarf lilac bushes, planted in April of 2021 have burst into bloom for the first time. What a debut!
Even my perennial sage is full of buds which are on the verge of opening…
And my final photo today is a wider shot of the Peony Tree that is breathtaking as it continues to steal the show with its nonstop blooming.
Leaves are falling and my garden is still producing beautiful blooms. As I did my daily “garden tour” I was inspired to photograph and share them.
I’ve been obsessed with hydrangeas for years but have had little success other than healthy green plants. In April I hired a professional landscaping company to make the front of my home prettier. Among other lovely plants he brought in three hydrangeas, all of which have been blooming for months, I was thrilled. Success at last!
Always lovely are my turtleheads, flowering garlic chives and annuals that continue to add punches of color…
Life is better when surrounded by the beauty of nature isn’t it?
I’m enjoying my ever changing garden on this sunny summer day. Connecting with nature, this oasis is my therapy in these troubling times. Surrounded by beauty, I’ve created a space where I can feel at peace and be grateful for all I have. And breathe….
Yesterday the flowers in my garden appeared to be in a competition to out bloom each other. Irises, peonies and poppies dominated the flowerbed alongside my driveway.
Sunshine, blue skies, warming temps and light steady rains are making my garden “pop” back to life, with blooms emerging from under last autumn’s leaves. Here’s a few flowers that brightened my Tuesday.
This week my Turtle Heads, Butterfly Bush and Garlic Chives bloomed, the gourds are growing larger and the Hydrangeas continue to add beauty to my oasis.
A week of extremely hot weather including several soaking rainstorms sent my garden into overdrive. Multiple varieties of lilies, my first hydrangea and black-eyed Susan blossoms and every variety of hostas sent up their blooms. This gallery represents a stroll through my garden today.
