Time in the Garden: Lilies and Lavendar


The garden is abuzz and ablaze with with critters and color. I wandered around early this morning and took some pictures to share. The lavendar bushes are quivering with Honey Bee activity and if I had a bee hive I know that I could get some wonderful lavendar honey- might have to consider this!!!
I am busily working on several pieces for an upcoming show at Liberty Town, so I don't have much time for a long wordy blog post. I am surer that many of you will be relieved to spend a few moments looking at my garden without having to read my verbage. The dill is blooming along with the verbena and lilies surrounding my hummingbird stained glass piece.

The daylilies are simply amazing this year and I believe that this will be the last Japanese Iris for this year.



LAst year Becca was upset that we did not have more Blue Hydrangea's, so out came the lime and now we have BLUE, BLUE,BLUE!!!





These beauties are NOT hybiscus or oriental lilies they are daylilies!! Simply glorious pinky-peach!!!


Belinda's Dream is getting ready for her second show of the season.



I do love purple and green together in almost any form!!

The last two pictures are of one of my very favorite daylilies, Joylene Nicole. She has tons of buds per stem, lovely color and pie crust ruffled edges and a wonderful fragrance. What more can one ask for ????
I hope that you can all get outside today and spend some time in a garden- it is truely health food for the soul!!

Your flowers are georgeous and you clearly do not have deer! I love blue hydrangeas and yours are beautiful. Happy flowers...

Lovely phots, Elizabeth. Especially love the hydrangea ... I can't get over how many lovely hydrangea are blooming all over the place this year. I don't remember seeing so many before. Think it's because the winter was so cold, snowy and New England-y?

Your flowers are WONDERFUL!!!! My deer would love all those lilies!! Good thing they can't get to you through the computer screen...

OK..I'm heading to the beach on and off for the next two weeks but after that, maybe we could meet at that bead shop you were talking about??? fingers crossed, xo Susan

Beautiful flowers! And I am coveting that hummingbird stained glass garden ornament!

It is too DARN hot to be outside this week unless it is early in the morning. We are having quite a heat wave.
