the garden tour

my garden, thanks to the last two weeks of non-stop warm, sunny days is doing really well~~and not a slug or snail in sight!!!

lillies!!

clematis!! my most successful addition to the garden

one of mrs halloways roses that i inherited

red hot poker-too sturdy for the snails this year!!!

geraniums-complete with my rubbish in the background

chinese lanterns-the little puffy green lantern will turn orange and red in the fall

petunias-i don't usually like pink flowers much but this combination of purple and pink and the fact they are just so bright and vivid makes them a winner!

i think this is called dianthus? don't like red but can't complain if they are blooming and adding to the texture of the garden!

i know some photographer enthusiasts can take better pics but no photo can replace the total effect of sitting in MY garden on a warm summer evening with jack and cleo rolling around in the grass and the birds chirping.

wish you all could be here with me!

  1. Right on Rose!

    Tracy, they are indeed dianthus – sometimes commonly known as ‘pinks’, and a member of the carnation family – or is it that carnations are part of the dianthus family? Whatever – more than you wanted to know!

    If you get a bunch of them in your garden and humidity levels are just right, they give off the best sort of spicy scent.

    Love those lilies!!
