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.
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!
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!
