The Gardens

  Some years the gardens are just so so, other years they're ok and some years, well some years they are really nice - IMHO.  This is one of the really nice years.  I took some pictures the other day - I hope you enjoy them.

Roses - love them, dislike having to spray them.  I've tried teas, heirlooms, floribundas, trees, minatures and  knockouts - they all get blackspot and the bugs love them.  But the flowers!  LOVE the flowers and the auroma . . .mmmmm.

I love this color! 
Teas

A really old climber that's been moved four times now.


Snap dragons that overwinterd.
And we have perennials, bi-annuals, and things we have no idea where they came from!
Delphinium the third year.  I have to admit, I threw some of these away thinking they were weeds last spring . . . .

That's my front gardens.  I won't show you the back gardens - let's just say they're having a so/so year.  Can anyone say overgrown?

Beautiful garden. Here in Phoenix, Arizona, it just gets too hot for anything to stay green for long. Thank you for letting me stroll along your walkways.

what you call a delphinium, we call foxglove or maybe it's just that I can't see the photo up close enough. Pretty, pretty flowers!

Your gardens are indeed beautiful. We need rain badly here in Missouri or there will be no gardens, flowers or vegetables, if it doesn't rain soon. I just signed in to your blog and i am your 30th follower!! Can't wait to read the news.
