It's a Beautiful Day~I'm in the Garden.....

In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful. ~Abram L. Urban



It's a beautiful day and I'm spending it in the garden. I was out early just as the sun was coming up. Well...actually the sun isn't shining, it's cloudy 54 degrees and a nice breeze, but beautiful. I weeded, deadheaded, and moved a few plants to a better place in the garden.


I still need to get fresh mulch down. I just haven't got around to that yet. So just ignore the muddy path!


everything is so lush and green with all of the rain we have had


My hostas took a beating with the hail (and my car) but everything else came out OK.






My last delphinium to bloom. I will miss them when they are gone!


I love my copper water can! It gets better with age!


OOps!! This isn't in my garden, but I wish it was!

  2. Thanks for stopping by. I am envious of your cool weather and rain. We have been scorching in the southeast. The garden has stopped producing because of the heat and no rain. It finally rained last night. When I heard it, I had to go on the porch and listen to it. Your flowers are beautiful. You are able to grow things that we cannot grow here such as the delphiniums. Come back to visit again.

  8. My gardens are the opposite, not green and lush due to the drought we are experiencing right now. Your gardens are beautiful and I love the path going under the arched trellis'.

  12. STUNNING! Every single photo (even the last one ... which isn't my garden either, but oy ve! What a dream!?!?!?) I came by via Susan's party, but I missed it myself. I took pics of my pergola all dressed up this afternoon (with the 2 hour lull in the rain), and I REALLY hope you'll stop by and take a peak, and let me know what you think of the progress! :)
    xo,

  20. Hopped over from Fishtail Cottage. Love, love, that purple with white delphinium! Mine have just started blooming here in Utah. I have a couple of hugh white ones. My garden is young, but everything sure is bigger this year than last. I'm sure it's because of all the rain we have had. I am now following you.
