Fishtail Cottage Garden 6/1/15
So if you saw my post asking for blogger help last week - you will know that the way I learned how to blog using Microsoft Live Writer is no longer compatible with Blogger. So I am doing what most of you suggested and doing a blog post directly onto Blogger! Curious, how do I size my photo's and make collages like I used to so that my post isn't just huge photo's? I like to talk about my landscape with you and tell you what is blooming and give gardening tips tricks that I know...but I feel like the post is so long with just the photo's! If you have any Blogger tips for me, I can't wait to hear!
We are still enjoying the peonies blooming up the front walkway... Its raining today and will continue to do so for the next few days, so I have been bringing most of them inside to enjoy!
Roses continue to make an landscape appearance! The first flush of rose season is the absolute best. I know at one point I counted how many roses I have in the garden, but at this point, I've lost count. I believe these are the last of the roses to open up that I've been waiting to see start sharing their blooms.
I love that this climbing rose has finally made it's way up the trellis of the windmill. So pretty, right?
My most beautiful and fragrant "Alba Plena" peonies opened this weekend too!
Some of my perennials have bloomed this week that I'm excited to share with you! Labeling them in order... Princess Victoria Louise Oriental Poppy, Freesia, White Foxglove, Larkspur, Chinese Pagoda Primrose, Phlomis Russeliana, Jacobs Ladder, Rose Campion, Chives, and my not so favorite Morning Glory (because I never planted and it comes up everywhere!!!)
Cardinal Candy Viburnum and Pink Parasols Spirea shrubs are now blooming! Both make great flower blooms for cutting!
Thanks so much for coming over and seeing this weeks garden post! I appreciate you being patient while I figure out how to blog again! xoxo, tracie
