First time growing jasmine, blossom aroma is intoxicating. Spider plant has babies coming 🙂
The garden is looking admittedly forlorn, but alas, dahlias, heliotrope and rudebekia keep the colour alive.
Beautiful Heliotrope – a beacon for bees, a sensual collage of colour and aroma for the human nose.
All the daylilies are either on the cusp or in full bloom now in the garden, here’s a sample of the beauties that currently grace my central Ontario garden.
A strong showing for the clematis this summer. Makes for a pretty filter when looking skyward.
Just like Old Blue Eyes crooned, it’s been a good year for roses.
For me, nothing in the garden is more beautiful then the peony. Maybe it’s the memory of my mother’s garden in days gone by, but peonies hold a special, central place in my heart, mind and eye when I scan the late spring, early summer garden. Peonies don’t last very long, but the flowers do make for long-lasting indoor bouquets.
It’s been so dry of late, so watering in the evenings has been an ongoing, daily ritual. The early Summer garden is taking shape with the pinks/purples/lavenders/peach hues on fantastic display.
So much beauty lies just at the margins of our highways and bi-ways, what look like simple wildflowers are truly elaborate patches and fields of bustling – and buzzing – life. I stopped a few times along our area roadways to capture the smaller worlds of wonder, going about life at their own beautiful, steady pace.
It may not make the cover of magazines, but my little garden brings me ever so much joy and contentment. I’ve learned over the years that the garden will conform to its own rules and order, and that, indeed,
life finds a way
