this is where we left off........

....over three months have went by without any blogging. it has been a whirlwind of a summer with several trips to lake michigan and florida. and inbetween the adventures.... lots of's where we left off in the lull after the daffs and early tulips have bloomed.....

then the whites of may appear ......old fashioned white peonies and a slew of wild daisies.....

then we have june, a burst of magenta daylillies and monarda.....

and now into late july.....

it is amazing how the monardas and karl foerster grasses have put on such a show for most of the summer. and now the yellow rudbeckias take over. can't say i have a favorite time in my gardens, i love each moment for what it is. this garden is the one everyone who visits sees lines our driveway. i hope it feels as welcoming to guests as it does to me each time i return home from our travels.


  1. Hey girl, I have missed you! Glad you are back, but also glad that you have had some good times traveling. I love the beautiful flowers that the Lord has made for us to enjoy! Have a good weekend.

  2. Good to see you!
    I'm loving your gardens! Our new yard is a blank slate. Just grass at this point.
    But just this week I've been telling the husband that I want to get some daylilies planted. The beautiful orange ones we had at the old house AND those gorgeous magenta ones just like yours.
    Glad to hear you've had a good summer.
