A Very Sunny Day

The sun was so bright this morning, but I couldn't resist taking the camera out and capturing the shimmering garden landscape.I had planted seeds that I brought from NY. The little orange cosmos are just opening up. This strange looking shrub is Mahonia. The birds love its berries.The Porcupine Grass is really coming along now. And this beautiful Rose of Sharon is really showing her stuff. Hope your day was just as Sunny!

Evie, your gardens look wonderful! I can't wait to find out what blooms in late fall and early winter there in Alabama. What surprises you have to look forward to.

How wonderful to be surrounded by such a riot of growth and beauty.

Hi Evie, I love those little orange cosmos. Are they the type that the birds like the seeds of. Glad some of your northern flowers have made it down south! (-:

Your blog is such a beautiful place to visit, Eve. Can't wait to experience the real thing up close and personal!

As I predicted a while ago, its all beginning to look like a real Eve Sweatman garden.

Hay you Sunny Side Up Eve! Good Morning. I love the second pic and you are right Sharon is strutting her her beautiful stuff. I love the white Rose of Sharon, I think it is my favorite. The garden looks great!

Your new gardens look like home already! I like that new shrub - never heard of it - and I truly love cosmos...though I am partial to hot pink!
