A Garden Tour

Hello everyone,
     We are enjoying some beautiful sunny days so the garden is coming ahead in leaps and bounds.I can walk around in the morning and again in the evening and it has already changed. I have more then a hundred peonies in the garden and they are rapidly opening up their beautiful fragrant blooms.
   So, today I have a few garden shots to share with you that were taken in the last couple of days.


This is the Nymph peony above and below.It is a single so it doesn't need to be staked.I love the color combo of the Magnificum geraniums and the Lady's Mantle with the peony.Every year I divide my Magnificum geraniums and spread them around the garden.Lady's Mantle often reseeds itself.
Close up of Nymph
The hosta also looks good in the color combo.
Lupins a spirea Thor I think and Wine and Roses weigela.also make a pretty combo.
An early rose.
Walker's Low Nepeta is often mistaken for lavender.
One of the Canadian lilacs-but I forget which one.I love them all!
The Slender Deutzia is blooming in Martha's Garden.
Siberian Iris.
The lilac blooming here is Miss Canada-she blooms prolifically every year.

This is shot from the front veranda looking to the driveway.
The pink Beautybush is starting to bloom.

Well, there is lots more to see but you will have to come back another day!

Thanks for visiting,

Carolyn

What a magnificent oasis Carolyn! I'd never leave. Not only are your gardens breathtaking, I saw another birdhouse I would love plus your shutters against the house look so rustic...
Be back soon. :)

Hello Carolyn
Thanks for that nice walk through your garden. It's so beautiful! At my home the roses are already gone and I have to wait for the second flower. And thank you so much, now I know the name of my peonies which I bought without a label :o).
Have a nice day in your great garden.

Thanks for all those lovely photos. Your garden looks lovely as always.
Seems you are a bit behind us though, all our peonies are over now and the roses has started to take over.
Hope you have a lovely day.

Carolyn your garden is magnificent! It would be worthwhile to make a long trip just to be able to admire. Tomorrow I leave on holiday to Provence and the PC does not take you with me (my husband has forbidden me I wants my attention just for him) so much I will miss your posts.kisses Gilda

Love it all! Wish my Ladys Mantle would get that big! and I can not seem to raise lupines even though I have tried. 100 peonies? heaven on earth...I think I have 8.
All your hard work sure shows its beauty!

Cindy said...

Beautiful, beautiful!!! Spring blossoms are so special. Your Nymph Peony is especially lovely, I noticed one of those in a neighbors garden just recently. I want one of those for next year!
Hugs, Cindy
