Let's start here in the shade of the front porch:
|Us - Maggie and Cam! - and the planter|
As you can see, the flowers in the planter are coming along nicely!
Also out front are the Mums. It's WAY too early for them to bloom!
They need to get a calendar!
This is a look at the top of the front gardens, mostly the Hostas, standing down in the Butterfly Garden:
Speaking of the Butterfly Garden ... two of the Butterfly Bushes down there are getting huge! Here is one of them:
And here's a closeup of one of the blooms:
"I know, right?!?"
Out back, our rose bush is in full bloom:
And so are our Stella D'Oro Day Lilies:
Let's make our way over to the Bee Garden, where our Russian Sage plants in there are bathed in purple flowers:
Mom's Coneflowers are bursting all over the place! She has them in the Butterfly Garden, the Friendship Garden, the Wildflower Garden, and elsewhere! Here's one of the PowWow Wild Berry Coneflowers:
|Our favorite coneflower, the PowWow Wild Berry!|
So cool, it almost looks fake!
Well, it does, Cam! Moving right along ...
Here's a closeup of some Butterfly Weed:
Butterflies LOVE those; Mom put 10 more in this Spring!
Our Lavender plants are looking good. Mom thought the pink one was dead, so she is thrilled to see it bloom. Here's a look:
Mom took 87 million more pix out in the garden. If you'd like to see them, please visit our Garden 2016 album on FlickR at this link.
Before we go, today is not only Flower Friday, but it's Flag Day here in the US AND the birthday of the US Army!!!
|"Happy 241st birthday to the US Army!!!"|
"And Happy Flag Day!"
Thanks for letting us share our flowers with you!
