Every day I end up thinking to myself…. I wish they were here today! I’m talking about the upcoming garden tour and the visitors that will be here that day.
I hope the new wildflower bed will be this bright and cheery the day of the tour.
I wish you could see the hearty geranium, white irises and fairy roses… all blooming at the same time.
This rose is my main landscape rose, “The Fairy” in full bloom, this is the best week of the year for it.
A close up….
Mr. Lincoln is fantastic…. it gets darker in summer blooms and it looks like velvet.
Husker Red Penstemon is so nice scattered around, just a touch of burgundy.
The butterfly garden is really colorful right now.
The butterfly bushes are just ready to bloom, but I have seen many butterflies already this year.
Spirea…. one of my favorite shrubs.
It blooms almost like a perennial, I think this one is Anthony Waterer.
Unknown pink rose, one given to me from an old homestead. My favorite kind. I have four “new” ones given to me that have buds now…. I am excited to see what colors they will be.
The lilies are blooming! My favorites…. I have several new ones ready to bloom soon as well.
I don’t even care for orange and this is beautiful… in this bed I have more bright colors.
I even have one orange rose to match them.
Blanket flower, something I am adding many more of….
This one is called Arizona Sun and it is a dwarf, only 12 inches tall.
But the ‘Countrytime’ Rose steals the show….
Its rich blooms are fantastic…. I think this is my favorite picture so far this year.
They always photograph so well…. you may get tired of me posting them.
Delphiniums are the prettiest shade of blue, I hope this spreads.
The white ones are pretty too….in the new kitchen garden.
The cutting bed is coming along nicely…..cosmos and zinnias.
And the hydrangeas are just starting to turn pink and full….. I am so happy, the frost got this one last year.
So like I said before…..I wish you were here today!
