The best of Summer

Hello everyone! Can you believe it’s July already? It seems like time is flying by. I’m truly enjoying the lovely weather we’ve been having.

One of our favorites things to do is to have dinner on the patio. I planted basil in our concrete planter boxes this year, instead of flowers, my herbs love it.

I used some of our homegrown garlic for the pesto…..I think the garlic blooms are so interesting. The pollinators do as well.


The hydrangeas are especially beautiful this summer. I think it’s due to all the rain we’ve been having.
Do you like fresh cut flowers?

Thanks everyone! I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! We are having our fireworks tonight, due to the storms and rain last night.
I’m glad the dogs don’t mind loud noises.

(Hey guys if this post looks a little different, I’m trying to get Blogo to post and update…so basically this post has been an experiment, thanks again for hanging in there.)

Take care and let me know what you’ve been up to.

A Little Flower Therapy

 I'm sorry I've been away for awhile, but I must say I've been trying to create a blog post in Blogo, it's an app that I purchased to use on my macbook, but unfortunately I've never been able to get it to actually publish.

After using Windows Live Writer for several year's, I guess I've been spoiled.

 A friend gave me this Amaryllis last year, but it never bloomed, after dying back over the winter I sat it in the garden and Viola!  It must love RAIN!

I'm switching out the plastic pot soon....just haven't found anything that suits her yet, (she's picky.)

Don't you just love Peonies?   They're right up there with Hydrangeas!

Love fresh cut flowers!

The photo above was taken from a friends's always so lush and lovely.

There you have it folks!  What's blooming in your garden?

Thanks everyone for stopping by,  wishing you and yours a lovely weekend and week! 

See you soon!
