Daylily and hydrangeas

A flashback to spring squill with their lime centers and the brown debris from winter.
Following her lead, Mother nature that is.

Colour Combos

July always provides an ever changing colour palette in the perennial garden.  I have decided to follow Mother Nature's good advice in choosing colour combinations for a few new baskets. This is the first one to go with creamy petals and soft mauve stems.The next one will be a bit brighter.

Workbench

So glad I could work outside today! I had a few new birds that needed perches so it was nice to work out by the garden and watch the real ones come and go to the bird bath. 

It was hard not to think of heading for a local beach but there will be more sunny days to play hooky.

July Blooms



Summer is busy with so many projects at work and home so there isn't a lot of time to write. There are so many lovely blooms in the garden however, I have to share via photos!
