I’m dedicating this post to my fabulous and frilly poppies.
I realize I posted two days ago but my garden is blooming all at once and these were too lovely not to share.
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.
Sometimes a stroll through the garden can calm the mind and shift your focus.
Seeing fresh herbs coming out of hibernation is a welcome sight.
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?
