gotta love it

The garden is in full bloom. Daylilies everywhere.

Coreopsis, daisies and purple cone flowers are adding to the riot of color.

The elderberries are blooming, too.

The new bed in the middle is waiting for the daylilies we plan to buy when we go nursery hopping to celebrate our 32nd anniversary.

I need to do something about those upstairs windows. Ever since we cut the two trees down in front of the house, the shades have bothered me. I guess they weren’t noticeable while the pines were covering the view.

The weather has been very hot and extremely humid which makes going out into the garden uncomfortable. But when it looks like it does now, I hate to miss it! Online is an easy way to tour the garden. 🙂 You can tour more gardens at Jean’s Bloomin’ Tuesday. Check it out!

    You have a beautiful garden and home. It looks like an English estate. You must have spent many months on your knees planting all those flowers.

    Everything is GORGEOUS Rhonda! Our Daylilies are going crazy right now too! I just went out and planted my Cone Flowers. I am not sure they are really where I want them to be, but it was TOO HOT to fiddle around right now, and they have been waiting to go into the ground since my birthday!!!! I can always move them later.

    I am sorry, but I don’t know the name of the Hostas you asked about. I tried to find a tag planted next to them, but they have all disappeared. They get HUGE though! I would say the leaves are approximately 10 – 12 inches wide. I would like to do some hypertufa castings of them one of these days. (When I actually learn how to do hypertufa!!! LOL)
