Walk Through My Garden
I had a kind of blah weekend. Nothing much to do and really not feeling like doing much. I finally had the afternoon nap I have been longing for. Cricket liked my company. :)
I got out to my garden and did some weeding and I have been taking pictures. I have my garden sectioned off into different areas, or rooms, depending on the amount of sunlight. I had to learn how to do that the hard way. Actually I'm still learning.
Today's pictures are from the south side of our Old Lady Victorian. The buttery lemon lillies are a rare find for me. They were all by themselves at the nursery where I discovered them a few years ago. They have been blooming and multiplying in blooms every year since. They smell better than any perfume I have found yet. (Well, except for one called Savannah Gardens which has been discontinued :( )
The White Lily is not really scented heavily, but it glows in the moonlight.
Actually the lillies are growing on the South East side.
The Morning Glory's and the Viola's seem to like the full southern exposure with just a little extra watering.
Next Time, I will show you the West side, which is shaded and inhabited with Fairies. ;)
I also have a front yard garden with a Northern exposure and I'm waiting for my late summer bloomers to wake up. I wish I could claim my gardens are weed free, but sadly no. The weeds and the RA are winning, but I continue the battle. Winter's are too long and cold here to not have beautiful plants to look forward to.
The kitties are all well. It's getting pretty warm here again so Billie is getting more brushing than she cares for. Toeshee is way too energetic. Cricket is an angry Queen of All She Surveys. Cody is a sweet and beleaguered chewy toy for Toeshee.
I have not visited anyone in the blogosphere at all this weekend! I think it will take me all week to catch up. My husband has vacation this week. we are sticking pretty close to home, but hope to try to have a little fun by going here and there around town.
Hmm... Blogger, for some reason has misplaced the font selection all of a sudden...
I don't think I did it. :)
I will be by soon to say Hi! Sending HUGS your way!
