End of July 2012 Gardens…
It’s amazing to me that we are finally seeing warmer days here in Seattle. I am a little sad because I know that it means the colder (& yes, wet) months are now closer than they were. Yet, very excited to see some blooms that I’ve waited all year long to finally see…
Hydrangeas, Hydrangeas and more Hydrangeas…
Now last week I shared with you the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea in front of Fishtail Cottage’s house…it is still mostly white, but some blooms are beginning to change it’s color to the slightest hint of pink…
Been really busy this week with painting the chicken coop and swapping out my planters (which I will show you next week) to something a little more fitting for the hot sunshine.
Here is a few snapshots of more of the beauty that has appeared this past week. Daylily, Hollyhock, Daylily, Hollyhock, Scabiosa, Mallow and Echo Mango Hot Poker.
We are seeing a lot of hummingbirds, butterflies and little birdies following their parents around the garden.
I know this because I see the sweet scene in the am with my morning coffee on the patio! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting today. Oh, I should mention there are 16 opium (peony, breadseed) poppy seed packets left in my Etsy Store…if you have any interest in purchasing ~ please visit my Etsy Store or click on the photo below to place your order…
I would love to see you link up your gardening posts this week Cottage Garden Party (now posted here)…To see where else I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie
I appreciate you hosting,
your phlox and hydrangeas look beautiful. We are so hot here that the hydrangeas have not been so pretty this year, but the phlox likes the heat.
The only things that have done well for me this summer were my roses and hydrangeas.
I love the pale soft coloring of yours!
hydrangeas. Everyone beautiful in it's own exquisite right!
