Summertime is Here

You can tell just by looking at our gardens that it’s Summertime. The lilies, daisies, and coneflowers are all in bloom. Plus the green foliage is abundant!

This double Lily was planted in my garden, by my Mom, 40+ years ago along with the Daisies. I not only inherited some of her beloved flowers but also her love of gardening.

I am thrilled that our gardens are giving us seasonal color. From spring to Fall we can expect blooms!








The gardens bring us welcomed visitors…



However… gardening does bring us surprises. When I planted this Siberian Iris last summer I really had no idea what the bloom would look like.

What a SURPRISE to our eyes…

It is not a spring iris like most but instead a mid summer bloom. The delicate petals were such a delight.

A stroll through the gardens brings both of us and others such joy.

Whimsy may greet you when turning a corner…

Thankful to the Lord above for the beauty that awaits us each day…

The best part of gardening is the ever abundance of summer bouquets…

Thank you for visiting our Summertime Gardens. We enjoyed your visit. Please come back as you never know what surprises may await you.

I am linking up with Pam at Everyday Living as she is hosting a wonderful garden party. Thank you so much Pam for hosting such a wonderful gathering of gardens!

Get outside and see what’s blooming. Enjoy!

Until Next Time ~Nancy

    1. Thank you so much my friend! When I get back from Canada 🇨🇦 I will head over to your place to see your latest!

  1. Oh, how I miss a beautiful garden of flowers. That’s something that just can’t be replicated anywhere in AZ. Although, we’ve received so much rain lately, that the air is every bit as thick and humid as back east. It’s crazy to see standing water in the valley. Enjoy those beautiful flowers!

    1. I don’t think Anthem got any of that rain. Praying for it!

      Thanks for the flower love! You are just going to have to come out here next summer. A girl’s weekend! Planting a seed!!

  2. Beautiful pictures Nancy. Love the flowers and your passion for it. My mom loves growing flowers, tending to them and sending me pictures. Good summery vibes!😊🌻

  3. Nancy, what a gorgeous stroll through your garden. I think it is amazing that you are enjoying the fruits of your mother’s labor forty years ago. That must be such a sweet memory. I have to introduce coneflowers to my garden, I don’t know why I haven’t! The lilies are just stunning, daisies are such a happy flower, and who doesn’t love a little whimsy?! Thank you my friend for sharing at Gardens Galore!
