The latest blooms

Isn't summer wonderful? The warm weather, the sunshine, long days, campfires, open windows... I think my favorite summer thing though, is flowers.
During the summer, there is usually always something blooming in our yard, thanks to Bob's hard work.
Here are some of the blooms we are seeing now.


Buttercups



Dragons blood Sedum



Moon beam Coreopsis



Astilbe



Unknown berries



Painted Daisy


Monarda


Oak leaf Hydrangea


Purple Chive


Don't flowers make you smile?

Yes, flowers do make me smile. We saw some wonderful daffodils in Ireland this spring and the pictures of them are some of my favorites of the whole trip!

Wonderful pictures you took of these marvelous flowers.

Your flowers are so pretty! I love summer too because of being able to grow the beautiful flowers, but the other reason is....no snow! =)
