Garden Views



                                                                          Hello everyone,
                                                             Our garden got the rain it needed last
                                                            night and we got a break from the
                                                            humidity after a thunderstorm.
                                                                   The garden is at it's most
                                                                   colorful stage right now.
                                                                Lots of daylilies in bloom,
                                                                 Several clematis are blooming.


                                                                    The view through our porch
                                                                     screen door.
                                                                             So pretty!

Your gardens are beautiful. It's certainly been a great summer weather wise hasn't it? I hope the rain misses you on Saturday. Our son's outdoor wedding is Saturday so we are hoping for sunshine too. I've checked 3 weather sites and each one is different! Who do you believe?? Have a lovely weekend and tour. Pam

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so beautiful.... I like flowers in all colors. and your garden is my dream- I love it.
We started last year with the garden. Our plants are still so small and the beds too little structured. I love your garden, it is spacious and it has flowers in all colors and textures. I wish we would have such a beautiful paradise like you
Lovely Greetings from Switzerland

Your garden looks absolutely beautiful Carolyn! Mine is very dry and it even looks as if some plants are already falling asleep. Hope your garden tour with the Japanese ladies was a success!

Happy week
