June 10 Garden Tour


Are you ready for some eye candy?

Florally speaking.


Tess D'Urbervilles

Then, have I got a treat for you.


So come join me on a garden walk again. 

The iris and a smattering of clematis reigned supreme for a couple weeks…


but now the roses and foxgloves are taking center stage.

My Warsaw Nike clematis is still showing off and will for most of the summer.  I have to keep tying it higher and higher.  I love this Clematis, it just does not quit.

This is my back stairs.  Now from the other side,


Warsaw is snuggled up to my Grandpa Nute Rose.

There is a story behind that rose, and I have told it before, but I shall tell it again

One day.

In places, the garden is getting way ahead of me…

believe it or not, there is a pathway thru there somewhere, complete with stepping stones.


I promise.


Look close and see if you can find it. 

My Tess rose is nearly covering the arbor on one side.  I have Eden on the other but I am planning on putting another Tess Rose in its place so there is red on both sides of the arbor.  Eden will get a nice new home.

Somewhere, around here.

Canterbury Bells provide a splash of purple in what is now a more pink garden.

Soon the garden with be dominated by yellows and oranges.

Below are my Gaillardias, another tough, drought resistant, never stops blooming performer.


Foxglove, this one leans towards a creamy yellow in color.  The only one like it in my garden.


This is barely a smidge of my floral abundance right now but your eyes would glaze over if I kept going

I am not sure why but the deer are not coming around. 

Last night they were in my neighbors back yard but they did not even glance over here.

I do have some tiny wind chimes hooked to different plants and the deer are startled by them when they chime, they run off lickety split. 

Maybe a new tactic to discourage the deer???

Good bye for now, come again.  I will have more to share…and I love sharing. Smile




  1. Oh Pamela, your garden is just perfect - I love it. I love all the flowers and the gardens that weave in and out. My kind of garden! Thanks so much for sharing and I look forward to another Garden Tour.
