Garden Delight

Good evening sweet friends.
I have been seeing many of you 
showing your flowers blooming,
so I thought I would show you our
latest garden we planted this Spring.
Now in full bloom..well almost.
Our front garden has been a work in progress
for two years now.
Next year more will be added,
but for now here is what is blooming.

I bought these pillows at Joann's,
when they had their 50% off sale.

The green shrub in back is a Spice plant.
It already bloomed maroon flowers.

A view of our willow chair with one of
my purple butterfly bushes in back.

Next to the chair is this birdhouse.
This is the first year the wrens have not used it.

Creeping Thyme blooming in between 
the flagstone of our walkway.

Same creeping thyme before blooming,
along with a violet towards the top.

Yellow yarrow,

My limelight hydrangea just starting to bloom.

Red twig dogwood to the right,
chocolate chip ajuga in the middle
and blue fescue grass on the left.

Close up of the ajuga.

Maroon wave petunias with honeysuckle
climbing up the chicken wire.
Next year you probably wont see the wire.
The hummingbirds love this!

Another purple butterfly bush. 
This one is a bit darker.

Look forward to seeing more of your gardens.
Do you have favorite flowering plants of your own?

Garden Delight Blessings To All!


  1. Morning Janice, oh your gardens are so beautiful. Love Butterfly bush but they don't do well here. Always love a good garden tour and you did not disappoint. Blessings Francine.

  2. Love your gardens, Janice! When we got home from vacation last week, ours looked like a dang jungle!! We weeded for three days and then I finally convinced my husband that we needed mulch to at least control the weed population somewhat...Love the butterfly bushes! Have a great week!

  3. Beautiful, Janice! I love the creeping thyme and the butterfly bushes, too!

  4. Such beautiful blooms...and garden hardscapes Janice! I couldn't possibly pick a favorite!! It's been rough trying to get the borders, etc. back after the remodel...still trying...but between a back that decided summer was a good time to give out, and gale-force winds every other day, I'm about ready to give up.... I'll have to enjoy vicariously through yours! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
