Beaujolais sweet peas in the garden. They finally started to bloom–I planted them months ago.
I have a collection of sun sculptures and decorations throughout the garden. What does a garden need? More sun.
Here’s one hiding in the sweet peas.
This year, I’m trying to incorporate a rainbow of colors in the garden. In the past, I’ve tended toward pink and purple shades. With the assistance of my clever 4 year old, I’ve incorporated more reds, oranges and yellows. The theme for this year: eye popping color.
Hydrangeas make me think of Cape Cod and the many happy summers I spent there as a kid with my family (including sharing a backseat with two large blue hydrangeas that my mom “had to have” for a long car journey). I have two pink hydrangeas in a new section of the garden, where I’m creating a cottage garden to attract bees and other beneficial insects into the rest of the garden.
I can’t get enough roses in the garden. Over the weekend, my 4 year old picked out this beauty at the store and I couldn’t say no. Its bright punch of color stands out in the sea of green sprouts and established plants.
What time is it? Garden time
