Welcome to my garden!

I took a stroll around the garden this weekend took some cool pictures. I felt very Georgia O'Keiffe-esk on a few closeups!

Everything is blooming right now I love it! I could spend hours just looking at my plants and watering them and caressing them.... Wait - did I go too far!

Anyway - here are some of my favorites...

Hydrangeas:


A hungry honey bee


My creeping sedum jungle...


Sedum buds ready to pop


Day Lilly


Colorful Coleus



A lone chick without a hen!

WOW that is gorgeous. I'm still trying to grow tomatoes... and lawn. It is such a nice change to see this since I've spent the weekend noticing all the cellphone tower trees.
