Early Summer Garden Tour


    Hello everyone,
                                                       The sun is shining here today so it
                                                       is a good time to tour the garden.
        The Miss Canada lilac(left) is in
 bloom now and the french 
    lilacs are pretty much passed.

                                                                     It is lupine season on the
                                                                     Island now so you will see
                                                                    them growing wild in the ditches
                                                                    as you drive along the roads.
                                                                    Early morning shot. The Korean
                                                                    lilacs are also in bloom .....they
                                                                    have such a lovely fragrance.

                                                                 Tall breaded Irises

                                                                           Enkianthus ~ Red Bells
                                                                              The bees love this!
                                                                  We planted some lupines around the pond
                                                                  a few years ago so they are establishing nicely.

                                                       The garden is changing daily and soon
                                                                 I will have aprox. 100 peonies in bloom
                                                                so I will be taking lots of photos then!

                                                                               Enjoy your day!

Um bom dia Carolyn. Seu jardim está maravilhoso. Me recordo muito das estradas cheias de tremoços, quando estivemos na ilha. Inesquecível. Fique em paz.

Breathtaking, Carolyn!

100 Peonies! How wonderful!

Your gardens are stunning. All your Lupines remind me of the story of Miss Rumphius!


Michele M./ Finch Rest said...

I need to be there to see this is person, I swear.

Your gardens are AMAZING.

Have you been gettting bus loads of tours, I hope? Hate they'd be missing this beauty - and 100 peonies? OH MY WORD!!!! Can't wait for those pics, to share in this loveliness.

All your hard work pays off again and again, my friend. Just beautiful! ♥

Your garden looks lovely with the lupins around the pond. I'm looking forward to the 100 !! peonies, that must be amazing.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Oh, to have that many peonies! No wonder you can cut armloads for vases in the house. I really like the lupins growing around the pond - do they reseed for you? I'm wondering if I should let mine try to reseed, I've had such a tough time growing them so a blogger from NB sent me some of her wild seeds and one germinated.
Lots of garden tours planned again for this summer Carolyn?
Wishing you a Happy Canada Day celebration.

Your garden is so beautiful. I did a blog post today on Lilacs and Lupins. I live in the Gaspe.
Your boat house is so beautiful reflecting in the pond. I enjoy all your posts. xo

Hello Carolyn,

I adore lupins and post lots of photos of them in these days.
Have a lovely weekend!
