I had the day off today (yea!) so I got to begin my holiday weekend taking a stroll through my garden. The weather today is beautiful and sunny, and I got some great shots I'd like to share.
This is my husband Terry's choice of garden decorations.
His mom used to recite this poem to him when he was little.
in our yard, especially the Butterfly Bushes!
Wild Milkweed has magically appeared in our
yard the past few years. We have let it grow so far
because it's the only plant the monarchs
will lay their eggs on!
Squirrels just LOVE the nuts
from our Ohio Buckeye tree.
They run around with the huge nuts
in their mouths, then happily munch away,
leaving the mess for Terry to clean up!
A lovely corner featuring
Wonder of Staffa, my favorite aster!
All my late summer blooming
Hostas look very regal!
The vivid lavender Physostegia virginiana "Vivid"
and my hardy Chrysanthemums add great color
to my late summer garden.
Some wonderful surprises in my
wildflower garden this year...
Queen Anne's Lace, and a mystery
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my garden today!
