Bits of Beauty



                                                                         Hello everyone,

                                                              Today I am sharing some bits
                                                              of beauty ~ mainly garden beauty.

                                                              Our roses are doing well this year
                                                             but I am hoping we get some rain
                                                             for them and the rest of the garden
                                                             soon. It has been drier here than
                                                             usual.
                                                             
                                                                     Several clematis are blooming now.


                                                                         Prairie Princess rose is
                                                                        a hearty climber.

                                                                   The delphiniums are also blooming
                                                                   in the background on the left.

                          A pretty bouquet of English Roses
                      and strawberry shortcake.....can't
              get much sweeter than that!



                            The last garden peonies of summer.


                                                                             Delphiniums in background,
                                                                             clematis on arbor and ladies
                                                                             mantle in foreground.
                                                                             The daylilies are starting to bloom
                                                                             now also.


                           Looking through the porch
                        screen door to the garden 
beyond.

                                                                           Our Allee Garden.

                                                                     Clematis and roses on either side
                                                                     of the arbor.
                                                                            An ivy geranium.


                                                    Well, just some little bits of beauty
                                                               for today......hope you enjoyed them.

                                                              Tomorrow, I am off to visit my friend
                                                              Margaret in the morning and then I am
                                                              going to the Garden Tea Party at
                                                              Fanningbank at 2 p.m. ..... a fun
                                                              day out.
                                                                                        Thanks for visiting!

                                                                                                       Carolyn

Hi Carolyn!
I agree with Sandi, your roses are incredible, as is everything you do! XO
I enjoyed every single second of our visit together. Thank you so much for the delightful lunch and garden tour. It's always a pleasure to see you and Andrew and your garden in full bloom - I just missed the clematis by a few days, I'm thinking! Your scones and strawberry shortcake...What a treat! YUMMMMM! We certainly enJOYed fantastic weather during our short visit on the island. Hope to see you again before too, too long. I am loving the photo books in the meantime...
Hugs and love always,
Linda at Beautiful Ideas
