People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~Iris Murdoch, A Fairly Honourable Defeat
Swamped with business today -- DH and DD are gone for a few hours this a.m. so am taking advantage of the peace and quiet and WORKING.
In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy a walk through my gardens.
DD's garden by her swingset was the prettiest one this year -- no deer or voles or chipmunks or bugs dared invade!
She has the prettiest lilies:
And Liatris that the deer didn't eat:
But my garden out front has a few surprises... ageratum:
And my well pump garden is doing nicely:
With bachelor buttons:
And what appears to be two different kinds of echinacea (isn't it odd?):
And nearby we also have hydrangea:
And garden phlox:
So despite the damage done by pests this year, it seems that at least some of my gardens are still hardy enough to make things pretty.
Flowers always make me smile. What about you?
