Cottage Blooms....

     
                                                            White Yarrow

That gorgeous Begonia...still going strong...

                            
                          White Asiatic Lilies...so beautiful at night
                                                         



                                   Oxeye Daisy...I believe...


Somebody want to tell me why my wee zucchinis keep falling off???

Sometimes the flowers haven't even opened??

It is a mystery to me....




                                   Day Lilies were spectacular...


                                      Hydrangeas may be ready this weekend...



                                            Pink Hollyhocks...also have white and Rose..


                      
                   The Native Mullien is practically a small forest on the beach..


I will be picking more Sweet Peas this weekend...


                                       Isn't this a cool green bug???

                    Ever feel like this?? Hahaha!!

We are off to the cottage...

Daughter Lissa and SIL Jeff coming out...the boys are going golfing...

Have a great weekend...

Cheers!  :o)

  3. Sooo nice. my bird feeders are busy as usual, I thought they would ease up once the snow was gone but those little ones are there all day and at dinnertime :) I don't mind, it keeps the cats occupied .(watching from inside...while they are wishing they were outside)

  4. Gorgeous flowers! I've always been fond of sweet peas. An old-fashioned flower these days, but a lovely one. I guess they call them "heritage flowers" now, don't they?

  5. It suddenly occurred to me that I need your advice. My hydrangeas have got leaves that are all burned, what, 20-25%, and I don't know why. I've got two kinds, and the ones with the smaller leaves are burned. It's such a sorry sight :( Any idea what happened to my beautiful plant?

    Yes, I'm still alive. I've been doing a bit of DIY.

  6. Beautiful flowers Linda! The white lilies must almost glow at dusk. That upside down goldfinch is so funny to see. There is a frost advisory in place for north west NB tonight!! Frost! In the middle of July. Crazy. It was so chilly today I wore a jean jacket to town. I have a bouquet of sweet peas on the dining table and they smell heavenly. have a great time at the cottage! xx Pam

  8. That second picture with the delicate pink flower. Just beautiful... I agree..That little critter would have been perfect for my painting of "Little Critter".
    Thought of you when I take care of three apples today. Did I slice them, yes. Did I eat them. Yes...after I covered them with sugar, cinnamon, butter and flour and baked them in a crust. Sure tasted good warm at 3 PM this afternoon... I think we'll call it dinner. haHa

  9. Are they grown from Frankenfood seeds? Sometimes that matters. Hope you get it sorted soon. If not, sooner.

  15. Well how cute is that upside down yellow bird! Another burst of amazing blooms at your Cottage - you must have the best soil, and so many flower plants! The Asian lily is gorgeous - I have never seen them in a garden, only in shops. And sweetpeas, always love them. Carried a bouquet of them when I was my sister's bridesmaid, back in the day.

      My annuals are all in baskets!
