One of my favorite parts of summer is my garden. This being the third year we have lived here, it's actually starting to look a little presentable. I have a sweet collection of coral bells in my tiny front yard that are in full, albeit miniscule bloom. My lacecap hydrangea looks a little worse for wear after the epic snowstorms we had this winter, but it still got gorgeous, delicate lavendar blooms:
Glicks greenhouse for their 1/2 price sale and loaded up on plenty of plants to fill in the empty spots in my side garden and backyard. I filled my hanging baskets as well, with some favorite flowers: lantana, sweet potato vine and this other one, whose name I can't remember but it looks like mini petunias:
I also got some annual black eyed susan, which are starting to bloom and are simply amazing:
We've been hit with heat wave after heat wave this spring/summer, so it's easy to forget that it is still June and technically on the 3rd day of summer! I can't wait to see the growth in the garden this year. It's time to get the pool bag ready again and pack lunches for the kids and me-life is so hard in the summer!
