A Walk Through My Garden
Last year's drought really stressed things in my gardens but this spring we've had relatively cool weather and ample amounts of rain. Here's a sample of how my flowers are looking this year.
My Stella D'oro lilies are bold and bright!
The clematis is blooming, as are the hydrangeas!
I had to replace several of my hydrangeas after last summer. I went with the Endless Summer variety. I've had good luck with these in the past.
Guess you can tell I'm partial to my Hydrangeas!!!
As I round the corner of the house, my day lilies take their turn at blooming. They don't want to be out done by everyone else!
This is a minature petunia. Isn't it pretty! See the statue of the children in the background? My teacher friends gave that to me when I retired. It was the perfect gift because I had been a remedial reading teacher for the last 12 years, and if you notice, the children are reading!! It also is a great addition to my 'garden-scape' and something I'll enjoy using in different parts of the yard through the years!
I'm also an herb grower. I really like using them in my recipes. Here are parsley, chervil and mint.
A planter with thyme, tarragon and chives.
Now to put the camera away and get out the garden clippers. I think it's time to bring some of these goodies inside to enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!
