bloomin’ tuesday

A lot of rain fell last night. There is still water standing in the center of the driveway. DH took this picture this morning from the roof of the house.

lots of rain

The rainfall filled the birdbaths.

The cats like to drink from the birdbath at the kitchen door. Perhaps they like bird-flavored water? 🙂 Zilli looks like she expects lunch to fly in.

why aren't the birds playing in the birdbath?

By the front porch, the hydrangeas are turning pinky purple.

I don’t remember where these lilies came from, but they are a lovely shade of red.


Here are a few daylilies…

I wish the sun had been shining when I took this picture. The catalpa tree is in full bloom and, in the sunlight, it gleams.

Hollyhocks have popped up here and there. They have a way of wandering around the yard. This one showed up in the front birdbath bed this year.


The ‘Paprika’ achillea needs to be divided. A candidate for the plant sale we’ll have in a few weeks, for sure.


With all the rain we had, yard work will be a bit slow for a few days. We’ll probably work on potting things for the plant sale. The damp ground IS good for digging.

Enjoy more garden tours at Jean’s Bloomin’ Tuesdays. Take time for a walk in someone else’s garden. It’s fun to see what others are doing.
