Old fashioned roses that grow on an arbor in the garden, not only look beautiful on the dining room table, but they smell heavenly too!
These are one of the many different kinds of hydrangeas I grow and all my bushes were loaded this year.
I especially like this variety early on with a little bit of pink and purple color to the petals along with chartreuse green. They are similar to the limelight hydrangea when it first starts to bloom.
They will turn more white as the season progresses.
This pinkish red variety were gorgeous out in pots in the courtyard area of the garden mixed with the greenery of angel vine, boxwoods and succulents this year and I can't wait to see how these will end up drying.
The blueish purple bush I planted a few years ago in the back yard behind our patio and this is the first year it has had more than just a few blooms.
And these lavender hydrangea blooms you see here are what the first ones I shared in the bathroom turn out looking like by end of Summer.
I bought a few more lavender plants to add to my yard and another butterfly bush as well.
The dried lavender usually ends up in my bathroom because I love the aroma.
Daisies grow abundantly out in our garden area along the fence.
Along with this lovely Queen Anne's Lace.
There are always plenty of flowers potted around my potting shed and in the window boxes.
And also in this area of our basement patio along with hops growing over the pergola.
I'm sad to see the hot Summer days gone and it is much cooler here with rain the next few days, but usually some of September is warm and sunny.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
