Tuesday Tidbits #37 A Summer Garden Tour

Welcome to our LakeHouse Gardens here at Tuesday Tidbits!

Our Spring flowers have given way to the Summertime Blooms.

The Black Eyed Susan’s, Daisies and Coneflowers have enjoyed the rain and heat.

Lilies are in full bloom! These Orange Double Lillie’s were planted by my mother 40+ years ago.

And when my red Lillies bloom… they make me smile…

A new flower that I planted in the Spring is just now blooming… Phlox! I’m glad it enjoys where I planted it.

And look at the Lime Lights! They are showing off!

Our gardens make the bees happy…

However, they make the Japanese Beetles happy too. They have devoured my yellow Buttercups. Grrr…! Here they are in happier times…

We not only have flowers growing nicely but Sweet Man’s tomatoes are coming in nicely as well.

Pretty soon we will be having tomato sandwiches!

These Hosta blooms are a deep purple and contrast well with the green foliage in the background.

They are near our back patio…

All these blooms make beautiful summer bouquets!

We just love our gardens here at the LakeHouse… and so do the frogs and bunnies.

Now can we have a drumroll please………………..

My first Zinnias have bloomed!

I planted 6 seed packets… many were eaten early on or later devoured by the dreaded Japanese Beetles. But I will have a few! Hallelujah!

I love Zinnias! I had a container garden of Zinnias in Arizona. You can see them at our Arizona Home.

How are your gardens doing? Are you struggling with Japanese Beetles, more so, this year? What’s blooming in your gardens? I would love to hear. Thanks so much for enjoying another Tuesday Tidbits…

Until Next Time ~Nancy
