Garden Tour Thursday

AYLA:  I'm doing the Garden Tour this week.  Its not that I am competing with Iza (*koff, koff*) but I want my turn doing it, ya know?  So lets tour the yard...
The daylilies are blooming nicely!  We have several differnt colors.  Butter yellow...
Golden...
And this wunnerful of a color I cant really name.  "Orangey-Brick"?  "Rouge"?   "Carnelian"?  Annyway, we LOVE this one!
THe meadow garden has mostly shown Brown-Eyed Susans and Blanket flowers, but some Queen Annes Lace is blooming now.  The insects LOVE that.
And the Hummingbird.Butterfly/Bee bed is showing a few more flowers everday.  I dont know their names, I just admire them.  Pale lavender...
 Powder blue...
Hot burgundy...
And lets back up a bit to see the whole meadow bed on the conveniently-placed stepladder for the high view.  Iffen ya dont like ladders, TBT is along ta lift ya up fer the view.  Iffen ya dont like THAT, yer outta luck.
And back on ground-level (whew), the Astilbes are blooming.  The flowers will get bigger soon, but are pretty good now.
And last but NOT least is our NIP bed.  It is big and getting bigger! 
But really, can there be TOO MUCH NIP?  We dont think so!

Now, lets settle in the shade under the Saucer Magnolia tree.  Iza and Marley have chosen the snacks today.  And it is ...  Poached Turkey Thigh cubes,  soft Salmon treats, and Niptinis!  Good choices (I suspect TBT had something to do with it this time as Iza and Marley think of food as just "food", while TBT and I think in terms of combinations of flavors and textures to be savored.

Well, thanks so much for coming along on MY Garden Tour this week!
