More Garden pictures!


Clematis in the side yard along with flags!

Close-up of clematis in the backyard. Every year the birds build a nest here.

Daylilies in front of kitchen window!

This clematis and bunch of flowers are in the back of the house.

This is our canvas gazebo behind our kitchen. We love it except for the fact that it has almost blown away several times this year so far. I like to sit out here in the evenings with a good book and some iced tea.

Your clematis is out too? Oh boy, I am starting to get an inferiority complex as my clematis refuses to bloom, meanwhile everyone elses is in full glorious bloom! Boo hoo!

Yours is absolutely lovely, so are the daylillies.

That is a very nice spot, I wouldn't mind sitting there with a cup of tea either....

It's been a strangely blowy rainy June...what is going on, I wonder...

I've done everything and friends' are growing like crazy and mine look like bean sprouts just breaking the ground!!! This is 2nd year also....... SOB....sob.....sniffle.......sob......
Smoochies,

I have decided that Clematis hate my guts!!!! Every time I plant one it dies!!! I am a wonderful gardener and have a major green thumb, but Clematis hate me with a passion...

Thanks for the welcome back! It is good to be out in my garden again, I need to post pictures of it as soon as my roses open up and bloom...I am counting down the minutes till that happens!!!

XO,
DL

I see you love clematis! Me too :) You have some real beauties, and they do very well for you!
The pink is gorgeous, but that blue with the orange lilies is spectacular. The colors are really lovely together.
I love libraries! My favorite job at school is subbing for our librarian (she has me trained) :) Before I began subbing at school I volunteered at our local library.
Your gazebo looks like a lovely place to relax and read, especially surrounded by all your beautiful flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. It's always nice to 'meet' new blog friends :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love yours. We have one of these too but haven't set it up because of the wind. Last year we set one up and it blew down the next day!! We couldn't believe it.
