My Garden in Bloom

Even though we haven't had much rain, my garden seems very happy.

The azalea's blooms stretch in front of our new patio wall.

The azalea on the opposite wall with a field of ferns in the background.

A clay chimney pot and some vintage cement urns flank the garden path in the side yard.

Roses climbing past the trellis onto the bricks.

My peonies are so lovely and so short lived.   If you're not paying attention you could totally miss their beauty.

Hibiscus bloom in one of the pots on my front porch.

My arbor framing the path to the back yard.

Peeking through the pergola at a back yard bed.

Climbing hydrangea clinging to a grouping of lattice trellises in varying heights.

Hydrangeas in bloom under a canopy of wild climbing roses.

A chippy iron garden bench next to a vintage weathered cupola.

How does your garden grow?
