Thursday Garden Tour On Friday

IZA:  I'm doing the garden tour today, cuz we were all focussed on Miss Parker yesserday...

These are the first of the Stargazer Lilies.  I love seein them bloom.  They smell nice, too!
The Trollius are beginning to bloom too.  There will be a lot more of them soon.
This Baptisia is a visitor from Australia!  But I guess it knows when Summer is up here in the North side.  Its a regular flower plant, but it gets big an bushy like a shrub.
I like the Stella D'Oro lilies too.  They bloom a long time!  And they are so bright an cheerful lookin.
These Stachys always look nice.  TBT likes purple colors.  But theses dont last fer long.
The Veronica Speedwell spikes are sort of purplish.  But  sort of blueish too.  At least they last longer, cuz they keep sending up new flower spikes.
We have this one rose bush inna box thats a survivor from an old patch that got pulled out.  The flowers are almost gone by now, so they were drooping.  But they are REALLY bright red!
And last, I wanted ta show ya all that the pansies are still hangin in there.  But its gettin near the HOTS now, so I dont know how much longer we'll be seeing them.
As a special treat today, ya can come up on the deck an look in the glass door ta see the new Grampa.  I sits in the chair there pretending ta watch TV.  But mostly he's nappin.

Thanks fer coming along on the garden tour today.  We should be more back ta normal by next Thursday!

Looks like you've got lots & lots of flowers in your garden. Your pansies are almost over for the season? How sad! Ours are just starting. At least, I hope they're just starting 'cause if they're not... well... we haven't had much of a season of them, at all! purrs

We love gardening posts. Mom is B-I-G into the garden this year. She is always outside messing with something. We all watch her from the screen porch and nap. Your garden is just beautiful.

Your garden is so wonderful every year! We love all the plants that just take care of themselves and "bloom where they are planted."
Scoobys pot of panseies has grown trememdously and they are tall with tons of blooms.
Thanks again for the tour! We love to come & see your flowers!

We loved the Stargazer Lilies. So sad about Parker. And of course we are worried about our Arty. Will visit when we can. Thanks for stopping by our blog and keeping an eye out for Arty.
