Garden Update

DSC_0265The summer growing season is in full swing, but is a little behind the normal schedule. My hydrangea bushes and trees have typically bloomed in full by now, but this year they are blooming a little later. I’ve also noticed that the hydrangea bushes have less blooms than in years past. That’s part of the fun….you never quite know what will happen each season.

That said, things are looking green and lush. Here’s a look!DSC_0274DSC_0267DSC_0271 DSC_0272 DSC_0273 DSC_0275 DSC_0276 DSC_0277And, of course, I always love a pop of pink with the mandavilla that flanks our back door.

What’s blooming where you live?!!



  1. Beautiful garden! Can you share what you have growing between the pacers?
    Thank you

      Hi Joy,

      The plant growing between the pavers is called mazus. It’s a perrential ground cover that has little purple (or white) flowers in early spring and then it’s the green you see in my photos throughout the summer. I absolutely love it!!!

      All the best, Elizabeth

    Thanks for sharing your garden with us. You have achieved perfection! Love all the lush greenery, your choice of plants, pops of pink, and the contrast of your white gates and fences. Everything is so well maintained. I could go on and on! In my part of the world (central Canada near the U.S. border) we’re having a wonderful summer. We’ve been getting a lot more rain than usual, so when you combine that with hot weather, our gardens are looking lush too. This has been the year for peonies, roses, and hydrangeas. My Annabelle has massive blooms thanks to all the rain. I still have lots of work to do in my backyard to get it to look the way I see it in my imagination! Btw, I follow you on Instagram and always love the glimpses of your garden. Keep them coming!

  3. Absolute perfection!!! Enjoy ever minute out there that you can! Sending you big hugs for the weekend!
