love the garden right now

The flower beds in the front yard are beginning to fill with color again. The daylilies are coming into their own.

The birdbath in the front yard is almost swallowed up by the flowers.

The hydrangeas by the front porch are pink to lavender. Just around the corner of the house, the hydrangeas in front of the addition are blue. Go figure!

We planted the hosta ‘Squash Casserole’ in front of the Japanese maple which sits just to the side of the hydrangea. The hosta will receive more sun in this space and should brighten up quite a bit, turning more yellow. I’m hoping that will be a nice contrast to the maple.

In the back yard, the bird bath bed by the kitchen has a pretty lavender plant coming into bloom. I need to check the lavender plant in the fenced garden to see if it’s blooming, too.

We’re having a plant sale tomorrow. All proceeds from plant sales go to the mission fund at church. We’ll do it again the first of July.

It’s always fun to have visitors in the garden. I’m looking forward to tomorrow. If you’re in the area, stop by! And if you can’t visit our garden, do stop by Jean’s Bloomin’ Tuesday to visit the gardens there!
