In the Garden

       Hello everyone,

With the beautiful sunny days we
have had lately the garden has burst
into bloom with peonies everywhere.
I am sharing a few of the highlights
in the garden today.
So wander around and enjoy the 
beauty and the amazing fragrance....
watch the birds rushing to and fro
as they feed their young and admire
the butterflies as they flutter from
flower to flower.

Preston lilacs

Early morning

       Love those Miss Canada lilacs.

Roses are blooming.

                 Take a peek in Martha's Garden

                                                                        Have a cup of tea!

                                          The geese come and go from our pond now.

        Thank you for joining me in the garden
for a Sunday afternoon stroll.

Take care,

What a delightful treat to take a stroll through your beautiful gardens, Carolyn. Any of those little hideaway tea spots is just heavenly.

One of these days I am going to see it in real life, I tell ya! ♥

Your burst of color is a bit later than in my neck of the woods in eastern Washington. As I look out toward the gardens this morning, the lilacs have long finished, the peonies are done, and the roses are taking a breather between cycles. Your garden never fails to inspire and encourage. Our heat wave shows no sign of letting up, so just keeping everything alive is the task at hand. You must use a magic potion on that lush lawn! It's all gorgeous!

It totally amazes me that your lilacs, peonies and roses are all blooming at the same time, Carolyn! What a heavenly mix! I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful it all is, and still boggles my mind that you and your hubby manage to keep it so meticulous. :)

I have been a follower of your blog for several years, and every time I view this season in your garden, with the lilacs, peonies and roses in bloom - I am always amazed at the beauty of it all. I would love to be able to stroll your garden and take in all of its beauty - it's all so romantic and filled with charm.

Carolyn, your garden is so luscious! The lilacs are breathtaking! I cannot imagine what it would be like to wander though your garden and nestle in one of your lovely spots for a cup of tea. So very lovely! Thank you for sharing. Have a great day! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
