Garden Tour Day on Sunday

Hello everyone

We have been busy working in
our garden and  it is coming into
it's peak for color.

So  we decided to have an Open Garden
on Sunday afternoon between 2 and 4 p.m
July 25.

I took these photos this afternoon
after giving these beds a good
weeding pruning etc.

The daylillies are in bloom now
along with the beginning of the
the phlox show. along with
many other perennials.

I love day lilies.

Clematis are also in bloom now.
This one is Jackimani Superbra

So if any of you would like to visit
and live nearby  all are welcome
this Sunday afternoon 2 to 4 rain
or shine.

I hope we will have a nice day but
if not bring an umbrella and some
rubber wellies and enjoy!

If you need directions you can email
me at
Please park on the side of the road.

Hope to see you there!

Lazy Summer Days

Hello everyone

I  hope you are enjoying some lazy
summer days. Summer always goes
by so quickly it seems.

I  enjoy lounging around  on a sunny
summer day in my old vintage chaise
with a good book and the scent of the roses
blooming around me.

The cushion for the chaise came from Homesense

Somedays it is my favorite
spot to relax with my book.

Sitting on the dock by the pond watching
the wildlife is also a pleasant passtime.

Or maybe a picnic by the pond?

Sometimes lazing around in the
hammock is the way to go!

How do you like to spend a lazy summer

Enjoy your day!

Pretty Peonies

Hello everyone

I hope you are having a good week.

I have really enjoyed all the beautiful
peonies in the garden this year but
alas, the season is almost over for
another year.

I enjoyed many bouquets of various peonies
but these pink Hawaiian coral peonies are
newer to my garden so an added treat to
my collection.

So far they are not heavy bloomers
but maybe as they mature they will

They are so pretty.....aren't they?

A cottage bouquet

A collage from the cottage with the roses in
bloom in the background.

I will have to share some garden pics soon,
the delphiniums, daylillies,phlox and
hydrangeas are all getting ready to
bloom now.

Thanks for visiting,
