A Garden Walk
|I love to see bees busily gathering pollen in my garden – I hope they belong to the bee hives
my neighbor has – he produces the best honey
Do you ever wish you could be in several places at once? I have been so busy with other things that I have not been able to visit and to tend my garden. I will have to dedicate certain portions of the day specifically to the care of the garden – the weather is heating up and despite the lovely rain – the ground gets dry quickly.
|the lavender and roses are in bloom|
Despite this – there are some hearty plants thriving in the garden this mid-May. I have so many plans and dreams as to how I wish the garden to be – I can just imagine the line of hydrangeas intermixed with Bridal Wreath Spirea – more perennials and a cutting garden to begin with – I love bringing flowers indoors – but it seems so hard to choose which one – seeming to deprive the garden of its beautiful picture.
|I love the color of the Geranium with the purple Million Bells|
|I am pleased this little rose bush is doing o.k. despite the powdery mildew that has attacked it|
|I love the buttery color of this Daylily|
|I planted these sweet pink Petunias in a pot in the seat of an old rocker –
I hope it spills over with abundance
|in the five front planters the flowers are beginning to fill in.
The annual Hibiscus overwintered well in each planter and should produce blooms soon
|I have noted that in a number of the old home’s gardens in this town that certain plants
are very common – Milk and Wine Lilies or Crinum are among those flowers
|My Brother-in-Law has a stand in the Pee Dee Farmer’s Market in SC – he gave this
perennial Hibiscus to me this past weekend – I need to find it a home
|I love the combination of Daisies, Black-Eye Susans alongside Purple Coneflower – these are
among the list of changes I plan to make in the garden.
|this is one of the last of the sweet mystery roses on this shrub – I hope it will have a
second flush of blooms after it is dead-headed.
|the Oakleaf Hydrangea’s blossoms are already starting to turn colors and to dry out on the bush|
Thank you for sharing this garden walk with me. I am hoping we will have an afternoon Thundershower – we unfortunately at times seem to be in a bubble where the storms fizzle out….I have perpetual hope each afternoon.
I am sharing this post with these Delightsome blog parties:
