MY GARDEN




 Early this spring,
I was looking on line for something interesting and different
to plant in my garden.
I came across this hardy gardenia bush, ordered two and they haven't stopped blooming.







Yarrow




English Lavender...





The other Gardenia.




Lupine



A year ago











It's almost time to "dead head" a lot of things so they can bloom a second time.
Since I took these pictures, I've added some rocks.
Gardens require a little tending, tweaking, feeding and watering.

Have a fun weekend!

Lovely! I bet you enjoy hanging out there. The gardenias and lavender would keep me coming by for a regular sniff. Does lupine have a scent?

Your flowers look lovely! Man I tried Yarrow and it took over my flower bed and creeped into the yard as well, a tough plant to control - looks like you have the secret though! Lupine is among my favorite spring flowers. you have obviously spent time on your flower beds, so immaculate!!
Have a nice weekend!

Your flower garden is just beautiful! I love how much it has filled in. I love gardenias. I have a few by my driveway and they smell so good! I wish they stayed in bloom longer.

Your garden is lovely-I love gardenias!
Wish I could smell one now. My soil is hard clay here-hard to plant things.
Hope your summer's going well.
