Garden Tour

The Master Gardeners had a garden tour this past weekend. The house and grounds are stunning.

I have a place all ready for some Annabelle hydrangeas in the front yard. I won't have quite the scope that is here, but they are pretty impressive where ever they are.
Beautiful statues . . .

Lori would have loved these snaps!


Blue Angel to the left, Lakeside Kaleidoscope in the foreground. On the right is my very first hosta purchase--bought at Wal-Mart years ago. It's been divided many many times, is in all the beds, and it's still growing strong.

Gimme That!

Lilla and G are great companions in the garden. And at 5 am, they think it is their duty to wake me up and get me out there.

We had really good rain all night and more coming over the next couple of days. I can just hear the flowers breathing a sigh of relief.

Paul's Gold

It's in it's glory right now. This one always makes me remember our trip to the Detroit garden show. That was in 1999, when it was named hosta of the year.

Washington Park Geese

G and Lilla were really taken with the geese on this walk.

Jewelry Party

I did the flowers for Tami's party today. We had a great time. Lots of beautiful jewelry and really good food.

Tuesday Vase

The dephiniums are all lying on the ground because I didn't get them staked. But they look pretty good here!

White Flowers

For years this astilbe was a little tiny thing, but it's been beautiful the last couple of seasons. The second shot is of the blooms on Big Daddy hosta.

Pieces of the Whole

When that Blackjack flower fell apart, it was still beautiful.

This makes me want to call the Lily Garden and tell them I'll take every single Blackjack bulb they have.
