It is "Talk About Tuesday" over on The Lazy Organizer and I'm talking about my garden!
Summer has arrived and my garden...well...it barely is blooming! It has been so rainy and cool here...my Endless Summer Hydrangeas have been poised to bloom for weeks and weeks--and yet I have just ONE bloom on my bushes--and I have five or six bushes!! Finally at the end of this week we'll be getting some nice warm weather and SUNSHINE so hopefully things will start blooming soon!
My first daisy is blooming--I can't wait until the black-eye susans follow suit. I love those flowers!
I'm trying not to spend much money on annuals and instead invest that money into perennials...but I couldn't resist these Wave Petunias.
Balloon flowers are a new addition to my garden this year. I just couldn't resist them and the name is perfect for the bloom. Don't you just want to reach over and pop the flower?!
My planter boxes and porch pots are filled with red geraniums and white alyssum--looks pretty with my blue house!
Here is my one lonely hydrangea bloom--and yet look at all the hydrangea bushes I have! There are two more in this row of bushes that aren't in the picture. Oh well, at least I'll eventually have a lot of blooms--last year I had ZERO blooms from these bushes due to some overzealous pruning the year before. They've come back better than ever this year though, so all that pruning did pay off in the long run.
