Garden Tour

Its been a rather busy month and I'm glad to have this weekend to spend some time relaxing and working in the junk yard.

For some crazy reason, I have gotten up early this weekend, even though I didn't have to go to work. I went out to water the flowers and decided to take a few pictures as well.

I love this ring-eyed day lily.

The hens are really growing well in this old rusty wheelbarrow and the chicks should start hatching soon!

More of the rusty-red and orange lilies.

The yellow lantana wraps all around the yuccas.

I started these zinnias and cosmos from seeds this spring and they are really starting to be pretty and colorful.

I changed the plant in the bicycle basket to this English ivy and like its appearance much better. I love how the ivy cascades over the locker basket.

The red alstromerias are filling in where the early spring bulbs were at.

Hope you enjoyed the tour. I'll try to share more pictures soon. Hope you all are having a great day!


  1. Beautiful! And I am so impressed you actually know the names of you flowers. LOL I only know a handful of names for plants and flowers. They are just the ones I like or the ones I don't. - Barbara

  2. You've got me singing "Pretty, Oh So Pretty!"

    I like it when you have time off; we get see more!


  3. It's all so beautiful! And that daylily is gorgeous! Oh, how I miss all the daylily varieties we used to have! We used to have well over 50. With our small space now, we're down to 8.

  4. I would love to sit in your yard! The flowers are colorful and beautiful! I love your different planters - the wheel barrel and bicycle basket!


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
