Blossoms, Bouquets and Beauty
My garden is in bloom and I am having such fun this summer tending the flowers and enjoying their wonderful smells and beautiful blossoms. Even the fruit trees are doing great which I am thrilled about. Most of them were planted only three years ago and this is the first year we have seen an abundance of fruit.

Grab yourself a glass of ice tea, sit down, relax, and come on a mini tour of my garden with me.

Here are my Hydrangeas going down the west side of the house. The blooms were bursting out and I had already cut off several bouquets for the house when I took this picture.

Here are some vines and flowers that line the fence out by the pool.

I have five different kinds of roses and they are all doing great. The area of our yard where the roses grow smells so GOOD.

More plants that line the flower beds.

I even have hanging baskets this year. I have had this one for almost a month and it is still alive. I am shocked because I usually kill baskets within the first few weeks. I always forgot to water them.

The smell of honeysuckle and Camellia blossoms is everywhere. Take a long whiff. Can you smell them?

I hope you enjoyed my tour. I am off to tend my garden and enjoy summer while it lasts.

How beautiful! I am completely jealous and also quite embarrassed to say that my poor sad flowers just keep givin it up...I'm tired of watering them, and they are tired of me forgetting! Thank you for sharing your lovely blooms!

Hi Julie;

Thanks for the blooming tour ;-)
Your hydrangea's are so beautiful-love the color. We have a blue variety, but it doesn't bloom as prolific as yours, not sure why? (we inherited them with the purchase of our home)

I need to get out and clip back a few things-thanks for sharing (and for stopping by my blog-hope you will come back!)

How, how pretty -- I'm jealous, too. I am lucky to keep two hanging plants by my front door alive! I would LOVE a beautiful garden someday.

Your flowers look gorgeous! We are pretty dry here and mine are starting to show for it. I keep watering them, but it's just not the same as a good ole rain. Enjoy your flowers, they sure are pretty.
