There is Beauty All Around Us…

I LOVE summertime – and all the gorgeous flowers that grow!

These are some of the latest beauties from my garden…

Have I told you the story of how my Irises took over?

I had my garden all planned out…(this was 9 years ago).

I had shorter perennials planned for the outside of the garden, then the Irises, then on the inside I planted Delphiniums.

Beautiful, beautiful.

The first two years it was GORGEOUS…if I do say so myself.

And then the Irises took over.

They killed off the Delphiniums – literally choked them out!

Buggers.

Oh well.

So…each year I move a few things…

The Delphiniums are now on the other side of our path where those beautiful (darn) Irises can’t get at them!

Here’s a broad shot of the garden area…(I’ll add a photo of the Delphinium side later)

I like to have my garden planned out so that something is always blooming.

Look at these beautiful Lupines…they’re just starting to bloom!

And look what else I found peeking out of my rock wall!!!  I’ve always wanted Ferns!

And just for fun I had to throw in a picture of my Cranberry bush…it’s blooms smell as beautiful as they look!

And just for fun, one more shot of those gorgeous Irises…

I hope you get a chance to get outside and appreciate all the beautiful flowers today!

  1. Lovely! I’ve been trying to get my irises to take over some spots in my yard, and they haven’t gotten the memo. 😉 Yours are lovely!

    • Thank you! It’s all in the dirt…we ordered in good garden dirt when we first made the garden and it’s been amazing! Good luck!
