Beauty from the Garden

Our garden is coming into it's own as the roses are starting to bloom along with the lilacs,peonies,iris, honeysuckle,hardy geraniums,lupins , sweet rocket,etc. The fragrance is incredible as you stroll through the garden especially in the early morning and the evening. The birds are singing and there are lots of butterflies fluttering about. It would be hard not to enjoy all the beauty in the June garden.

Today, I am sharing some closeups as I practiced some with my new macro lens.

This is the Agnes rose - I love the soft yellow color of this hardy rose.

Spanish bluebell

I would never know this is Lady's Mantle-macro lens open up a whole new world of beauty.

You might have noticed I love the Agnes rose

The tree peony is still blooming

Today, my husband and I went for a drive to Victoria by the Sea so I will share some photos of that later. I found a treasure for the garden at Reid House Antiques that I am happy to have and that will be tomorrow's post. I hope you can come back again!

It is sunny and warm here now and it is supposed to get hot on the weekend so I am off to enjoy the garden.

Thank you for visiting me,

Dag Carolyn,
Je foto's zijn weer prachtig! Wat een mooie kleuren allemaal. Eigenlijk denk ik dat de roos de mooiste bloem is. Fijn om die allemaal in je tuin te hebben. Onze rozen zijn nog niet zo ver. Zodra ze bloeien ga ik ze ook fotograferen.
Wens je een fijn weekend en lieve groet, Marja

Hi Carolyn,

Beautiful blooms indeed. I have never cared for poppys before but lateley, I´ve seen amazing photos of them from other blogs. I think I´m beginning to seriously like them :)

Have a good day,

Here in Virginia, the roses have finished their spring bloom and they are stewing in the early summer heat and humidity. It is wonderful to relive the flowers through your lovely photos.
