I love my garden. It makes me happy to grow flowers that I can cut and bring into the house or just share with others.
These are photos from my cottage garden.
My stunning peonies. These are the first peonies that I purchased. I've had these for about 16 years.
They have a glorious scent of old fashioned roses.
So pretty with a light rain falling. I took better photos yesterday and lost them all....don't ask.
These white iris are dainty and elegant. They were given to me by my friends mother, who is now with the Lord. The delightful thing about gardens and gardeners is the generosity of sharing beauty by dividing perennials. It's a joy.
A flower head on my hydrangea. I cannot wait - I look forward to these beauties every year!
I wanted to show you my new pots on the deck.
Euphorbia Diamond Frost, Calliope Dark Red Geranium, and Margarita Sweet Potato vine. In the matching pot, I used Sweet Caroline Sweet Potato vine.
Another cool day here. Tomorrow through the weekend it's going to get hot - upper 80's. Then next week into the mid 70's again. Unusual weather year....I was despairing of the tomatoes if this weather continues, but Tim smiled and said "We'll offset the cost of tomatoes with cheaper energy costs."
What are you up to this week?
