Garden Blogger’s Blooms Day is here and I have actually remembered to post for it.

The heat this year makes me want to be lazy.  I love summer time but the humid temperatures do not make me want to run out there and sweat for hours in the yard, but somehow my garden draws me out.

Everything is so colorful and lush with all the rain and high humidity we have had over the last several weeks.

My hydrangeas are happy, producing giant balls of flowers in all shades of pink, blue and purple.

The clematis has been unusually covered in flowers for quite a bit of time and now the day lilies are showing themselves.

6After 7 summers here in this house, it’s as if the plants are finally settled in and not looking “just planted” anymore.

  Of course I can’t help but want to move things and divide things but mostly all the plants are where I want them, until tomorrow when I decide to change something again or add a new bed.

 Then once again I will delve in.

~It’s a gardener’s prerogative to change her mind.. or is that a woman’s prerogative?  


Either way I am covered.

  1. Hi Teresa, I found you through GBBD, how nice to see all your plants in full bloom! We seem to have many of the same plants in our gardens, loved your daylily, do you know the name for it? Over here in London we have had unusually hot weather and it is set to last for several more weeks, I love it, can’t get enough of it after the cold winter and spring we have had. Have a great week, take care, Helene.

  2. I can’t wait for the day, when my garden doesn’t look “just planted” anymore. I have been gardening for a year and half so everything looks that way….I envy you. Happy GBBD!
