It is a nice day for a garden tour so let's go shall we!
This is my favorite part of the garden right now. It is the Allee garden leading to the pond.
This part of the garden is a new extension last fall. It filled in quickly as we divided heathly sized clumps of perennials from other parts of the garden for the most part. The hollyhocks I started from seed and they have done well considering the dry summer.
We have so many varieties of phlox in the garden that put on a good show in August.
This shrub Clethra not only looks pretty but has a wonderful fragrance too.

Now you might want to go inside and dream for awhile of sunny summer days.
Thank you for taking the tour with me,now we are off the have dinner with friends.
It was a beautiful beach day again yesterday so my husband and I headed to the beach later in the afternoon. After enjoying reading for awhile, listening to the waves coming to shore we went to Richards in Covehead for Fish and Chips as someone told me they had the best on the Island-try them you won't be disappointed!
Andrew took a few creative shots with my camera while we were at the beach. Covehead Lighthouse is in the background.
We watched a beautiful sunset.

After a lovely day at the beach -a stop for icecream and I was "good to go"!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We had a beautiful sunny day here so we went to the beach and watched the sunset, It is supposed to be sunny and hot again tomorrow-such lovely summer weather we are having.
Anyway, I have an assortment of pretty pinks for Pink Saturday.
