Around the Yard Part II

I guess it seems like I just did a flower post...hence the part two...but I've been busy and you know the drill. I've been wanting to do more critter posts but every time I see something great out the window and step outside with the camera...it fogs up because of the humidity!!
Something I have to remember now that I'm down here...must put camera outside in the morning!!!
Anyway the butterfly bushes are blooming!And I've got little "maters" growing...I'm pretty sure these are Danni's maters!
Thanks sweetie!!This years pot!Double Lilies.I really like these guys around the garden. I think they may be a dwarf plumbago.And I couldn't resist this Dahlia again.A brand new Monarda 'Beauty of Cobham' I ordered from Dutch Gardens. I hope they spread like weeds!!!And the Phlox.That bumble bee just had to have his picture taken! Perfect timing little guy!

Eve, you can post flowers anytime! These are really nice, as usual! I like the first shot and the Monarda "Beauty of Cobham" is interesting! Thank you!

so many pretty flowers! The double lilies are my favorites. I need to take photos of my own for this year. That first photos with the orange lilies and the blue is really pretty!

The orange and purple together Eve is just, well, just delicious! I love Eve's Gardens and Property Walks. And I see more miles on the Iron!

Such a lovely garden. No wonder the bumblebee loves it there.
Was he smiling for the camera? I think he was...

All very beautiful. I say take all the flower pics you want. Now is the time of abundance for flowers and they're all so lovely.

Basically that's pink Bee Balm, right? Mine are red but I'd love to mix a little pink in!

Wonderful Lilies!

Great variety there and flower pics are just as nice as critter pics (darn that fog though ;-) I love the dark purple butterfly bloom against the orange color - a wow factor!
This year's pot is lookin' good (love that sweet potato vine)!

Eve said...

Thanks everyone. I love it when you love the flowers! Yes, Sharon that is a pink Bee Balm. I hope the hummingbirds like it. I havent seen them at it...yet...

Eve your flowers are just beautiful! Tomatoes? are those the tomato seeds you received from Dani? Lilies- just spectacular!

The Monarda and Dahlia are GORGEOUS!! I have to mention those to Sean's mum, she would really love those in her garden. You have quite the variety in your yard. I don't know much about flowers so this is always interesting :)

Beautiful flowers Evie and the little green "Tommies" are coming along nicely.
