{ full bloom }




Our garden is in full bloom! We don't have a big yard at all, and most of our gardens are filled with flowers, with some planted containers and baskets thrown in too. I like to think that I have a bit of a green thumb, but I can't take credit for any of these beauties this year. Jeff has planted, watered, and fed everything. Good thing he's got a green thumb too. He planted all of the sunflowers around his studio from seed and they're amazing. The bees like them too, as you can see.





Here's a little tour of what's blooming these days.










































What's blooming in your gardens?

So pretty! I love Lamb's Ear--it's one of my favorites!
We have planters full of lime green sweet potato vine, petunia's, and hot pink geraniums on the front porch!

Thank you! I love Lamb's Ear, too. It adds such an amazing texture to the garden, doesn't it? Your planters sounds beautiful! I didn't get to pick up any sweet potato vine this year, but it's another one of my favorites!

Oooh pretty! I have lamb's ear, bee balm, a few butterfly bushes, rose of sharon, yarrow and coreopsis all blooming. Love this time of year, but esp love all the butterflies around. We just had our first monarch yesterday.

Heather said...

Oooh, we haven't had any monarchs, just the yellow and white garden variety of butterflies. They're pretty, but not like the monarchs! Your garden sounds beautiful, Shelly.
