My Garden In Summer


Welcome friends! How are you enjoying this fine day? We have finally begun work on our horse barn - I can hear the sound of the skid loader in the pasture...I will need to send someone out to take pictures! Today is my Sarah's birthday and she is going to decorate a little cake later!

Her birthday party is a surprise to her so I won't spill the beans here yet. I will post about that this evening or tomorrow.

Lindsay and I have been taking some photos of the flowers in my garden this week so I wanted to share them with you.


I decided to add a photo or two of our creek...


Here is a close up of a sweet day lily. I bought it years ago because it said it was pink and I thought that would be unusal. The color is more salmon like but pretty.

This is a bloom from my black-eyed susan vine...it is blooming fine just not growing up the arch like I had hoped.

My shasta daisies...they started from two small plants and now are divided and transplanted not only in other areas of my yard, but in many other gardens as well.

Lindsay took this neat shot!

This is a pretty peach color rose, that my mom pulled out of her flower beds and gave to me! I am always a willing recipient of free plants!

This is my climber in my front flower bed...

Interesting shot of the Echinacea - purple coneflower.

This is a great shot also...
I will try to show you other garden areas here at Creekside Cottage sometime this next week.

I hope you have enjoyed your stroll through my gardens...and I didn't even charge admission!

  1. Beautiful Garden pictures, every one! I love Lindsay's shot of the Shasta Daisy. I planted two small plants in my garden this year. I know they like full sun but I had to place them in light shade. I will wait to see if they do okay there before looking for a brighter spot.

    Happy Birthday to Sarah!
    Always a pleasant visit stopping by your place!
    Kindly, ldh

  3. How generous of you to allow us in without a fee. :-)

    I am sure Sarah will enjoy her special day.

    Those coneflowers are awesome. I'll trade you something you want from here for a hunk of those...

  12. Beautiful pictures!

    I didn't share any skid loader pictures because it's so hard to see the people inside. Maybe I'll try to do that another day. Right now I have a lot of things I want to post about.

    Yes, our friendships are very special and we treasure them.
