In the late afternoon as the sun begins to sink below the treeline…this is where you’ll find me. I love to spend time each evening walking through the garden. Here is a bridal wreath bush. It’s taller than I am now.
We don’t have any veggies planted yet. Tomatoes, peppers…we’ll plant those real soon, I hope. And we usually just mix it all into our flower gardens. But today, I’d like to show you around, to see what’s blooming. White snapdragons. How I love these. This year, I planted a bunch in planters on our deck, and they are in full bloom.
Spanish lavender. It’s one of my favorites. It grows so well here, and it smells very heavenly :) The sage is still growing well, too. And in the background, you can see dusty miller and another bridal wreath bush.
The pink roses are blooming. Oh their smell is so fragrant. I love roses. I have several white rose bushes also.
Oh the chives…they have the prettiest purple blooms each spring. Chives are one of my favorite herbs, and really thrives in our garden.
And here is dill, standing tall behind the dusty miller. Y’all it smells like a dill pickle ;) It is a pretty, wispy herb…which blooms sweet little yellow flowers.
This is verbena. It spreads like crazy…and this one is a very pale shade of pink.
And last, but not least…the foxgloves. OH wow! They grew 4 feet tall! I finally clipped the stalks of blooms to bring inside to enjoy. Did you know they are poisonous? You will want to research foxgloves before you plant them.
And while I’m walking through the garden, I usually gather clippings of different herbs and plants to make arrangements…like these goblet centerpieces HERE.
It makes my soul happy to walk or work in the garden. I feel God’s presence. I enjoy His creation. The beauty. The aroma. It’s like a little piece of heaven here on Earth.
What’s blooming in your garden? Do you bring fresh flowers inside?
