On This Side

Unfortunately, with the dry weather, powdery mildew has begun to appear on some of my Bee Balm.

It looks like it will have to be cut back, right before the garden tour this weekend.

I had to take one last picture of this side of the garden.

Tomorrow I will trim it down.

Garden Textures

The garden changes daily now.

Sunflowers, Bee Balm, Cone Flowers, Brown Eyed Susan flowers fill up the empty spaces.

The back drop of corn fields rustle with the wind.

Blue Jays are calling me to fill the bird feeders.

Rolling up my sleeves for a good day.

The Humble Start

This was the little sign I made for my greenhouse when it was completed.

Painted on an old door panel found on the property.

The name hopefully speaks to the garden, it’s surroundings and the gardener as well.

I needed a reminder today.

I’m out finding my happy in the garden.

Dogs Rule

Cousins, critters and fun in the garden this weekend.

Amy Weichert captured this sweet image of Rosie!

Cousins are cool!

Eat Your Vegetables

The kitchen garden is packed full of tasty vegetables this year.

Some may say the beds are a bit over planted (my husband!), but I didn’t want to waste one little bit of space this year.

We snacked on fresh pea pods and green beans yesterday, and our first cucumbers today.

Pesto to make this week with Basil plants growing quickly.

Loads of vitamin D in here!

Garden Goals

The last couple of growing seasons, I have worked on adding daylily’s to the perennial garden.

This year I’m seeing the benefit of that decision.

Tooting my own horn!

More daylily's!

More daylily’s!
