Summer Gardening 2023, Backyard

I'll start out with the only three roses I have.  I'm real pleased with how they've been blooming.

                                    This one is Cherry Parfait, a definite favorite of mine!

Sarah Bernhardt peony was absolutely lovely!  Sure wish they'd last longer!

One of the mixed planters with dahlias, geraniums and supertunias. 

This is a favorite, love all the colors.  The yellow ones were called Cape Daisies, and have grown quite a bit since I took this picture.  I think they are also known as Cape Marguerite Dasies.  I hope to find more next year to plant a bunch!

One of two planters in front of the garage.  Salvia and coleus did well  I've had to pinch back the coleus because if is overrunning the salvia.  The hummers and butterflies love the salvia!

I planted these Angelique begonias in May and it took until the end of July to bloom! 

Some of the blooms are 3" & 4" across!

Campanula Rapido Blue Bellflowers, I love them, such a pretty color.
A good reliable Spirea, Little Princess

Another spirea, Pink Sparkler 
I replaced some hydrangeas with these because I had trouble with frosts ruining my hydrangeas.  These are much more tolerant of our cold weather up here.

A large planter filled with a mix of peachy pinks, coral, lime green and burgundy.  

This planter has been beautiful.  Prettier in person!
My new Gorilla Cart in green I got early this summer.  Always filling it up!
Bright Lights Double Moonglow, Osteospermum

 Burgundy Glow Ajuga has spread nicely carpeting this area of the retaining wall.

This a Red Wine Lofos vine.  I mixed it with a couple of other annuals, but the prettiness of the vine is the eye grabber!

Some pink Bellflower. This is my "pink" garden so I stick pretty much to pink!
A few weeks ago.... I do have one blue delphium for contrast!
This blue plant is from Proven Winners called Blue My Mind, dwarf morning glory.  Looks especially pretty with the backdrop of my Annabelle hygrangeas! 

 Drop me a line and let me know you visited!

4th of July Parading!

Once again I've created a parade for the 4th of July!

I started with the red and white checked vase ahd the blue vase for my baseline of deco items.  Daisies and flags soon followed and I rummaged through my patriotic deco and laid it out from there. 

A lot of these are some pieces I collected from Pier 1 back when they had stores.  

Lady Liberty is one of my favorites!

This was a piece from my sister Donna's who has passed.  She had a lot of red, white and blue and nautical in her collection.

This runner was also from Pier 1.  I've always  thought it was extra cute!

Added some blue hydrangeas to the big vase I got from Ethan Allen years ago when our store was closing.   

Some new MacKenzie Childs pieces and a couple of Bethany Lowe Americana pieces that I've had for a few years!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you a great Holiday!

Happy Easter


Wishing you a Happy Easter.  

I kept my decorating for Easter simple this year.  
The sun was shining in from the living room so I caught a few pictures.

The bunnies and vase are new.  I saw them in a picture and had to hunt them down!

Once again I used the basket of flowers I created several years ago and added a couple of bunnies for fun!

 Wishing you a Happy Easter!
