A Garden Stroll at Dawn










I love gardens and am joining Mary at The Little Red House for Mosaic Monday,   
and Glenda at Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday/Flaunt Your Flowers
and Hey Harriet for  Shadow Shot Sunday.

Your hydrangeas are lovely. Mine are newly planted and are small but I am enjoying the blooms and they have been much photographed. I also have coral bells and astilbe. Your garden looks to be doing very well. Nancy

Shirley, What lovely garden spots you have. Your flowers are all beautiful. Most of mine are getting scorched in the hot sun and high temps we are having. Hopefully it will cool down soon. Mickie :)

Hey Harriet said...

These are lovely! I hope you have a great week :)

Shirley, what a wonderful stroll in the early morning hours. Love the big rock you have and the shadowy shots, along with your conifers. Dawn is a beautiful time in your garden!

All your flowers are beautiful but I especially love the hydrangea.
Love your water garden too, lovely place to sit and reflect.

I am your newest follower and would love for you to come follow me.
Have a wonderful day!!!

your garden is gorgeous! I was just looking at the clematis post that you did...I so wish mine was that far along...it is so puny this year. I have no idea why it didn't get as big as it usually does...I love the hydrangea and...oh heck...the whole thing is great! thanks for linking in!!! See you next week? I will add you to the linky with this post on Thursday night if you like...and if you make another FF post...you can have two! *)

Shirley said...

Sounds like a plan Glenda! I will likely post another for Friday but just in case the week gets away on me it would be nice to be linked in! I love Flaunt Your Flowers/Fertilizer Friday! Thank you.

PS How is your garden looking now that you've had a chance to clean up after the hail?

Your gardens look so peaceful.

You have some lovely blooms to share for FF. The white Hydrangea is just gorgeous and that Clematis is putting on a fabulous display.

Hi Shirley, Pretty mosaics! Love your clematis and hydrangeas and astilbe. You inquired about planting geraniums around roses to deter Japanese beetles. I don't know the answer; I read on another blog about geraniums deterring/killing Japanese beetles and there is some addl info on the internet too. I plan to try adding lots of geraniums to my garden next year in an attempt to control these nasty pests. I don't like using insecticides if I don't have to...kills the beneficial bugs as well as the bad ones...Time will tell!
