|The Flower Garden.|
Everyone commented on how beautiful the hydrangeas were this year, and I agree. The colors seemed more vibrant and the blooms more full. Not sure why that was, but there you have it. These were taken when the hydrangeas were actually a bit passed their peak.

The blue ones seemed particularly bright this year.
I have a plefora of daisies. This was taken when they were just starting to bloom.

It’s truly a shame that I missed getting pictures of the roses at their peak this year. Here are some pink roses with purple coneflowers and wine-colored monarda (aka bee balm) in the distance.

When the purple coneflowers are in bloom I know I’ll see goldfinches soon. Hey, I made a rhyme.
The monarda has more than tripled since I planted it a year or two ago. The bees and butterflies love it. I imagine the hummingbird must also, although I have never seen it actually at the monarda.

This is the problem area on the one side of the back yard that I had cleared out. The beds are still a work in progress and the grass is now growing in.

I have a bunch more photos to post, so I promise I won’t wait so long next time! Not that anyone is reading this but me. :o)
