Ode to the Summer Sun

Well, I'm finally back after a very long hiatus where everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. My computer seems to be working for the time being so I'm grateful to finally be blogging again.

School started today much to the chagrin of my 10 year old. Even though it is August, albeit the last day, I can all ready feel fall quickly approaching. It's a little sad really even though I do like fall. So, I figured I would do a little picture review of my garden in rememberance of summer.

My newest water lily. I was so surprised it actually bloomed the first year.

A view of my walkway garden in early summer with the lilies, hostas, and bee balm all in bloom.

My new garden on one side of my archway filled to the brim with nicotania.

And last but not least, my beautiful lavender rose in black and white just because I prefer it better than the color version.

Hope you enjoy the last days of summer. Girl Scout honor I'll be back tomorrow.

You did a great job, as usual, with your garden this year! That water lily is fantastic--do you have a man-made pond or a natural one?

Good to see you back blogging!
