Flower Gardens

Right now, this minute, is the high point of my flower gardens. I have spring flowers, and a few late summer and autumn blooms, but none of them even remotely compare to what happens in the garden in late July and early August.

Someday, I'll post my garden - oh, all of the lovely sticker bushes!
(envy, envy, envy)

I adore hollyhocks - I am so jealous of all your lovely ones.

Great looking garden Tracy.

Susan Carlin said...

Oh! You live in an absolutely beautiful place. All your hard work has paid off in such beauty. Thank you for posting pictures of your garden.

Tracy said...

Sus, sticker bushes have their very own kind of charm:) Anyway if it makes you feel better, I will post pictures of what's going on behind our garage, it's not quite so charming back there!

Thanks Katherine, I love hollyhocks too. They came with the house and I have added more as well.

Thanks Susan! I do love our "spot"!

Wow! What a beautiful place to paint. Do you run a bed and breakfast by any chance?

Ellie said...

onpainting, is this Lisa and/or Bill? I LOVE your blog! I have been reading it ever since I linked to it since I read Peter's post.

No B&B I am afraid, way too much work....

Thanks Ellie.
