My Home Garden Missed Me..........






Arrived home late afternoon yesterday...

Spent 2 days at the cottage with my SIL...

We had rain, thunder,high winds...

But...

Also some sunshine..:o)

Many scrabble games...not sure I won any!

But..one thing I know for sure...

My home garden missed me...

And showed me how much...but welcoming me home with a lot of lovely blooms...

Will share a few with you today...

Enjoy!

Glad to be home...♥️

My Daisies were the happiest to see me...

Wanted to make a small bouquet...but resisted...will enjoy them today as well...

And...a lot more buds to open...

 

I had purchased this Fuschia planter for a steal...$5...and it is perfect! It is flowering profusely, and attracting the Hummers...just as I had wanted♥️...I have yet to capture a shot of one...but I will keep trying!!
White Yarrow just starting to bloom....so exquisite up close...and I like the feathery foliage..

The beginnings of the Purple Coneflowers...love this perennial...I believe I have white in the front garden...will take some pics out there this afternoon...lots happening there....


                                                         *******************

              Hope you are all having a great week...

                 Weather is very pleasant...humidity and rain gone!!

                             Back to the business of enjoying Summer.....

                                   Boyfriend back tonight...YAY!!!

                           Gonna make him one of his favorites...

                                 Roasted skinless panko crusted chicken thighs...

                                       I think some roast Yam slices and a Ceasar Salad...

                                 Sound good???


                     Enjoy the rest of your day...

                              I plan to!!

                                 Cleaning...laundry...grocery shopping...you know, the usual!

                                   Cheers!  :o)

  3. You're getting a good tan though, if the rest of you is the same colour as your feet.

  6. Such variety you have! And all in different states of blossom - lovely. I think daisies, although some may consider them run-of-the-mill, are such a sweet flower. Such a sunny disposition. Even the name makes me smile.

  7. I'm loving this weather without humidity. The gkids were here all day so it was busy, busy, busy. Daisies are my favourite flower and the clump in the front garden is doing amazingly well. Some of the outer stalks are getting floppy so just might cut them off for a nice bunch of blooms inside. Glad you enjoyed your time at the cottage, but I'm sure you are really glad to have the boyfriend back home. Enjoy the weekend.

  8. Hi Linda!
    Don't you just love when your garden welcomes you back with open arms? I know I do. I just posted pictures from my garden too for Garden Tuesday:) I even have the same Daisies as you. Aren't they just darling:) Love the Fuchsia, I never have luck with them, but I do love them. Dinner sounds yummy. What time? Thanks for sharing, Linda...

  10. Oooh...gorgeous daisies! I had to transplant mine this year...they were in a spot under the eaves that didn't allow the rain to get to them and they were always dry and thirsty. I love them.....such bright, happy faces!

  16. Love your peony header photo! They are such a pretty pink. The daisies are sweet too, a favourite of mine. We're in for a beautiful weather weekend here. We have our power but there are still thousands with out until next week. There are thousands of trees, power lines, poles and transformers down. It's really crazy here. Enjoy the weekend. Pam

  17. All the same usuals here too, Linda. Love those daisies, so sunshiney and pretty, also the exotic fuchsias. What fun playing Scrabble in a cosy cottage with the wind and rain outside. A perfect break!

  18. I am a keen gardener and I love daisy's,but unfortunately they don't seem to like my soil and they die off. Shame.
