More Beauty in the Gardens

As i said in the last garden post, we have had our fair share of rain, and also plenty of sunny, warm days, so the gardens are pretty happy...In some cases, as in the morning glories, TOO happy!

Most of the day lilies are in the front garden. We finally got our new walkway put in and the grass is just growing back around the edges....


These daylilies are so bright and vibrant in color. And the scent is lovely!...

A closer look....

We also have the Asiatic lilies growing back this year.

This day lily grows right on the fence line so i was very surprised it was still with us! This one has a beautiful scent...

We have the hosta in the back shade garden. I had transplanted these after the back yard was graded. After the initial shock, they all came back very well, and some of them are blooming!

More hosta in bloom

This is the same yard where the sunflowers are growing. Here are the heirloom morning glories. My Mother's Grandfather had these growing in his yard many, many years ago. Well, i don't know why i was worried these might not come back this year. They are threatening to take over the whole yard! To the left of the photo, you can see my large wheelbarrow. The fence full of vines dwarfs it!

Here is my old friend Mosie, walking thru his yard. The boys and Zinnia have little pathways worn in the ground. But i am afraid if they stand still long enough i might never find them!

Mozie and Gipetto out for a little stroll.... So as you can see, everything is growing almost too well! (Maybe it's all that fertilizer the dogs leave behind...???)

So glad to be back at the computer so I can visit friends!

Sometimes I look at your blog and it takes me a minute to realize I am not looking at my own (or spaced out, somehow) - Daylillies and hosta!! That is exactly what I just transplanted and put in front of the cabin!

Thank you CM! I feel the same way about you..i could call you brother! And i am unnaturally excited about your cabin in the Adirondacks, as if it were mine! Actually, i have been talking a LOT about buying a cabin on a small lake/pond, right on the water, rehabbing it to suit my husband's special needs and being quite happy....Until then i live vicariously thru you dear friend....:)

Thanks Sara. Since these pictures were taken i managed to weed whack some of the wildness out of the yard. Now they can explore better without getting tangled in the vines!!!
