A Morning Walk in The Garden

So glad you could join us! After a relaxing breakfast on our patio today, Hubby grabbed his camera to capture what’s happening in the garden….let’s take a walk, shall we?

The tomatoes are looking great! Each year, we anxiously await the ripening of our fresh produce…it’s hard to wait (yet well worth it) for “farm to table” goodness!

Here’s what started it all today – we noticed that all of a sudden – here is the first bloom of the Day lily this year – what a color!

IMGP2175 (2)Plus, it’s friend, the Gaura, seems happy to float in the air like tiny dancing butterflies. What a pretty sight with a gentle breeze!

IMGP2185 (2)Check out the Butterfly Bush….even planted in a large pot, it’s happy to feed the bees. And they sure are happy it’s here!

IMGP2168 (2)See the hint of color on the hydrangea? Soon, this little beauty and it’s neighbor one pot over will be bursting with pink and blue blooms.

Hope you come back soon! The view changes each and every day.

  1. Lovely garden. I’ve got to get outside & see what’s coming up in mine. I planted some carnations & Sweet Williams the year before last & this should be the year for them to bloom but I haven’t had a chance to look out there. We had 2 beautiful Butterfly Bushes but I guess the winter was just too much for them because they no longer are.

    • Sorry to hear about your butterfly bushes…we lost our gardenias 2 years ago from the ice storm and one long week of sub-teen temps (I know…not cold for you guys, but VERY cold for us here!). Hope something comes up for you soon!
