Garden Abundance!

Welcome to our garden once again. the first couple of weeks in August is when our garden has an abundance of color and so we consider it to be at it's peak-so come along with me and see for yourself.

I love roses and clematis together-this is Sexy Rexy and Jackmani

Hydrangea,phlox and daylilies are blooming in abundance now.

I like how hostas give color all season.
We have hundreds of daylilies-the Shasta Daisies are blooming here too.

The hillside is bursting with color.

With 3 days of sunshine coming up(hopefully) I will be out enjoying all the beauty of the August garden.

Today I am joining French Country Cottage for Featured Nest Friday and My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday,

Hope you have a wonderful weekend,

Your gardens are beautiful, with all the heat we've had things look a bit on the sad side our way. The last couple of days have been more fall like, it's amazing how things have started turning around. I always enjoy popping in to see what you post. hugs ~lynne~
