Weekend Garden Stroll…

Wanted to share with you some stars of the garden this holiday weekend!
Hope you can enjoy some time with your family and friends.  I am pretty sure we will be here at the lake all weekend.  I think we’ll get in and swim!  I’m ready to spend some quality time in my raft floating!
Thanks so much and please consider becoming a follower!
Happy Gardening…Brooke

  1. I love all of the colors in your garden. I have a hard time mixing the warm and cool colors in my garden.

  2. Your gardens are so full and lush. I just planted my first oriental poppy. I hope it does well. Beautiful flowers!

  3. My lilies started opening up this week!! Yours look so beautiful!! Also, do you plant your sunflowers early? Mine usually don't start to bloom till way into June, sometimes even July! Very, very pretty! I LOVE sunflowers!! Thanks for sharing!!

    In His Lo♥e, Ann

  4. How wonderful your gardens are! My daisy's have just started blooming and our wild Lupin along the wood line. Otherwise there is not much blooming in my gardens yet. We have had such weird weather this year. The spring flowers came to soon and then we have had very cold nights until this past week. We will be putting our vege garden in this weekend. We have decided to only put about a quarter of what we usually plant because hubs wants that area to rest this year. I was raised in Indiana , all my family still live there, and so remember the longer growing season you have than we have here in Michigan.

  5. Lovely flowers. I like your combination of the light blue and orange flowers. Very nice. I Love the color of your red poppy. I have one that color....somewhere.

  6. love it all...the video above is wonderful Brooke!!!! I love your gardens. I think I would have crapped my drawers to see that are a braver girl than me!

  11. Great garden. We try to get flowers like yours but they rearely look that good!
    Another hazard here is snakes and we recently did a snake handling course so we could deal with problem reptiles better.
    All the best
