Good Night, Garden

After a hectic day Saturday, I was happy to be home in time to see the garden in her prettiest light. I was tired but I know my blogging friends were depending on me...haha! The lawn was so lush and green, too, after HH's first mow. Okay, I am not complaining here but it just seems crazy to me that we had driving rain (and hail!!) last Wednesday, and now...a heatwave! These poor cool weather blooms will not know what to do. Hopefully, they'll hang in there so I can enjoy them a little while longer.

My daffodil border, along the driveway, is at it's peak. Peonies will be in it's place in another month or so. I like how the buds are reaching towards the sunset.
Can you tell I LOVE bleeding hearts?? I made an arrangement last week and these were not ready for the vase...
Cool how this white bleeding heart took on the glow of the sunset.
I swear the buds on this magnolia were tight just a few days ago.


So I was sitting there trying to get that perfect sunset photo (again) when Linus, our neighborhood stray, decided he wanted to say hello!! And I guess he's telling me he's tired too, and ready for bed.
So from my garden, to yours........Good Night!

  2. Great shots! I loved how the daffodils were facing the sunset too..like they were watching it go down! Sometimes I think the neighbors wonder why I'm always taking pictures of my plants....its SO worth it, though!

  3. Lynn, who needs the botanical garden if everyone has a garden as pretty as yours! I love Bleeding Hearts. I think I have not seen a real one before. Many years ago, I saw this flower from a magazine and I thought it is such a beauty. The white ones that you have, are so wonderful! This is a fantastic post, you can take a good rest for this week ;-)

  4. WoW! Lynn your photos are great and the flowers are looking good. So much coming alive now. I have a bleeding heart that didn't come back. Fortunately I have another and a wild one my girlfriend gave me that's doing good. Love the tired kitty picture!!! Linda

  6. Good morning Lynn- that looks very pretty. I love the long daffodil bed. What a stunning border! Mine are all dying back already. Our heat wave started 2 weeks ago, very unseasonal for IDaho.

  8. What great pictures! I love them all. I can see you like bleeding hearts and they look so pretty in a large grouping like that. What a cute picture of the cat.
    It's cool and wet here, wish we would have some heat here.

  10. Your daffodil border and the bleeding hearts are lovely! I just bought 4 bleeding heart plants and put them in...this is the first year I've ever had them and they look beautiful. My peonies already have their buds...so it looks like they'll at least have some flowers later on! Last year only one of them had buds. I'm tired now, too...so, goodnight from Virginia!

  11. Thanks Phoenix! The heatwave this past weekend really made the dicentra take center stage. Hopefully, the won't wilt too soon.

    Hi Marissa, my neighbors have seen me on my belly taking pictures..and I don't care..like you said, it's worth it..lol.

    Stephanie, thanks! Wish I could send you a Bleeding Heart but I don't think you can grow them in Malaysia...bummer! The white ones are new from last year so they are very small compared to the pink ones. I hope they'll bush up next year.

    Linda, too bad you lost one of your dicentra. I've lost a few too to rot as they do not like it too wet. The kitty, Linus, really made me laugh when he did that...as if on cue!

    Thank you, Ms. Cherry! I love your amaryllis collage!

  14. HA Lynn, I laughed about letting your blogging friends down, so true, just a little pressure to perform, and you did so beautifully. Or should I say the flowers did, and the yawning kitty was the perfect ending as the sun sank. I am so impressed with your bleeding hearts! Gorgeous!
