A Garden Stroll




Hello Friends
 Come with me for a little stroll around the garden with me today. There is lots of color and the garden  will soon be at it's peak as far as color goes anyway.


 The east side of our house just outside the baywindow.

 I think this side has an English garden look to it with the virginia creeper going rampantly over the house.
 The birdhouse is from Home goods.
 The Jackmani clematis is loaded with blooms.

 Everything has filled in nicely and in spite of the dry spring and summer is still holding up pretty good.


 The tall blue spikes you see here are monkshood.


 Another view of the Jackmani with Annebelle hydrangea.

 The delpenium are still holding up well.
 The Jackmani on the arbor leading to the doorway.
 This clematis is out by the garden cottage.
 This is from our walkway looking toward the barn.
 Down is the Allee garden

Here you can see the hydrangea blooming with the mockorange in the background.

Some lovely roses blooming in our garden.


I hope you enjoyed a little stroll through the garden on this lovely July day.

Enjoy your weekend!

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn, I always love my visits to your blog. It is beautiful in every way, from the blog background itself, to the photography, to your home, your teasets, and of course, your spectacular gardens! The gardens look very lush and colorful. Beautiful!

Hi Carolyn,
I could stroll for days in your garden! Monkshood... that is a new one for me! It's lovely and a good copycat for delphinium! I am glad to catch another peek at your delphinium, I bought a few more today to fill in, mine look kinda sad, one day I am gonna get the hang of them!
Hugs,
Bella

Your garden is stunning, Carolyn, and looks fresh even with our lack of rain. You have a real haven there in Warren Grove!

Blessings,

Your gardens are spectacular and it's wonderful to see a garden that is being watered by rain other than by the constant use of hoses for weeks on end... absolutely gorgeous! Larry

Enjoyed the walk in the gardens immensely. I love all the arbors. I am determined to have one, one day.

They add such a special touch. But know what I love best of all? Your statue of the girl. So, so gorgeous.

If I ever saw one like her I'd snatch it up in a second. Have a peaceful Sunday, Carolyn. Susan

Your garden is the most perfect one I have seen! I wish I could see it in real life sometime, but as I live in Sweeden that is not so easy. I just have to follow photos!

Your gardens are as pretty as any magazine picture. I've come to the conclusion that the colder winter climates have the prettiest summer gardens. The unbearable heat of our summer has made it difficult for the flowers to hold up this year. Your garden is magnificent!!!
