Allee Garden

                                                     Hello everyone,
       It was an overcast morning here with a promise of rain so I wanted to take a few shots of our allee garden before it got wet.
   The Miss Canada lilac on the left is still putting on a good show and the Miss Kim on the right as well ~ both have a lovely fragrance.The Walker's Low Nepeta is just coming into bloom here although in our Chelsea Garden it is in full bloom.The roses at the end are also in full bloom now.
                             The old wheelbarrow got dressed up with wave petunias.
                                    Miss Canada up close and personal.
                                       The Enkianthus shrub is blooming at the north end of the allee. I love the pretty bell shaped flowers and so do the bees.
                                      I have a weekend bouquet or two for you!
                                   A vintage McCoy and hobnail vase with peonies.

  •                           A Sarah Bernhardt peony in an aqua hobnail vase.
                           This is a long weekend here in Canada as Monday is Canada Day. We have a couple of tours from Japan and we are planning a family event for Monday so I hope to be back here on Tuesday.

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends!

Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

BTW- my tea society ladies from a different state came for tea and a fun overnight stay with me and they ALL LOVED your gorgeous book, Carolyn! They each agreed they need one for their own tea tables!

I am always amazed at how your blooming season is so condensed so that you have all the lovely flowers at the same time! Your allee is stunning, Carolyn. Your garden gets more and more magical through your vision and hard work. Thank you so much for sharing it all here.

Happy (Belated) Canada Day!

Hi Carolyn,
I trust your Canada Day event went well. It was a quiet weekend in our household because Hubby was down with a flu bug. He's better now.
Your lilacs are gorgeous and I love the wheel barrow filled with petunias! And of course, your peonies are scrumptious! Thank you for another feast for the eyes, Carolyn. Hope you're having a lovely evening.
