BLOOMING SUMMER


Thought I would put some summer in my blog today . I certainly don't presume to be a photographer of any sort..with my little digital camera lol...as quality of closeup will atest too. I do however still enjoy photographing the wonder of the blooms I am fortunate to have in my own yard.


To start, here is the BLOOMING pile of discarded wood in the driveway. We have to bundle it up and haul it to an appropriet dumping ground...unless ofcourse any of you wish to take it to burn? If so, please contact me lol.


All the old deck wood


Here are some perenials in the back yard...

As I did last winter...I thought it would be fun to remember what the front yard looked like only 4 months ago March. Hard to believe...


The branch tips are about 10 feet from the ground.

I love to see the flowers filling out...they will look even better next month lol...the ones among the rocks will fill out even more...this has been a great yr, lot's of heat with short thunder storms, then sun again...We are already eating tomatoes and yellow beans from the garden. I already have small cucumbers . We have lots of zuccini flowers started, so they should start soon, first time planting those. The peas are close to being ready to pic...we actually only plant peas to eat them raw lol...its fun, while in the garden to pick and open the pods lol.


Have you planted a garden this yr, if so hows it doing? Ours isn't very big but its fun to go get stuff for dinner directly from our own garden....so satifying to know u helped create from seed, something on your plate!

I love your flower photos, Moon, and I greatly prefer them to the snow....
LOL

I did not plant a garden and haven't in years. I need to do that, though.

No garden, but have planted stawberries and blueberries in planters outside about 2 years ago. We also have black currants and goose berries bushes, As far a veggie we tried several years ago to plant some corn and tomatoes, they jsut didn;t have enough time to grow....Now I am afraid our garden has overgrown with weeds..Yet another project...I do have flowers and started a rock garden. Which I think I posted some of those on my blog at some point....

Hugs

Lovely to have a midmorning stroll round your garden and its sweet that they have a blanket of snow tucked up around them. It looks unusual to me to see plants blooming under a tree. Usually the roots get in the way. I'd love veg from the garden but no space or talent for it.

Your front garden is beautiful. It's hard to beleive it was under so much snow such a short time ago!

The pics of the flowers are lovely :)

Melody said...

Oh your garden looks absolutely delightful!! Hard to believe that 4 months ago it was covered deep in snow! Wow...
