Country Gardens: Mid May On The Butterfly Hill

Welcome back dear friends,
I am sharing more of my cloudy day photos.
It has rained a couple times today.
Keeping the garden wet and the flowers soggy.
If the sun comes back out I will try again.

 But even though it was overcast,
enjoy the lovely spring blooms on the butterfly hill.

Grab a cup of coffee and look around a bit~!


 If this is your first time visiting, this garden overlooks the lake in our backyard.

This area was my last to clean up this year.
I had a mean batch of poison ivy in the butterfly bushes this year.
The bare stems are the five Crepe Myrtles that are just now leafing out.

Come back again soon... I have lots more to share!

  1. Stunning photos! I must say I love cloudy day photos everything looks so much richer. What part of the country are you in?
    Here in Canada spring is just waking up!


  2. Your iris are so beautiful. I love your Butterfly Hill.

  3. Dearest Brooke,
    Looks very lush and green. Poison ivy or poison oak is a pesky thing for having on the property. For having a wonderful garden, there is a lot of work and sweat.

  4. Very pretty, Can you tell me the name of the red iris? That is such a pretty and unusual color.

  5. Beautiful photos of your garden. Would love to find that pale pink iris and that deeper pink iris is stunning. In the Fall I will be on the look out for them.

  6. How beautiful. Such a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing spot to wile away the afternoon. Thank you so much for sharing with Share It One More Time. Cathy

  7. Butterfly Hill is absolutely lovely Brooke! I'm trying my hand at a butterfly garden this year. I'm just praying the bunnies don't destroy it first! :(

  8. So beautiful! Love your gardens! Xo ~julie
