We were blessed with almost an inch of rain overnight. Everything looked so refreshed this morning that I took a few pictures to share.
In a previous post back in the spring someone asked me about the iris bed. Well, this is it now with lilies, daisies, coneflowers and some going to seed rose campion. Should be some zinnia's in there ;o(
This is Vera Bigalow....you can figure out why I bought her.....hard to find anything with my name
Look at Susan this morning
don't you just love sunflowers
bees love the coneflowers
Thanks for looking.

Vera,I have been enjoying your beautiful gardens for many years now and still love to see them.
Love your gardens, Vera! And of course you'd want a Vera daylily!! If I found a "Karen" anything, I'd be right on it!! Thanks so much for sharing your pretty place with us!
Very nice, Vera!!! I love the mix of all your flowers together.
oo-ing and ahh-ing here. again. i'm going to have to add these wonderful pictures to my collection from your gardens and put them on as my screensaver slideshow.
I'm ooh-ing and ahh-ing all over again. And I got to see them in person!
Thanks girls.....rampart cottage is definitely my style. I like a full mix of plants and colors with barely any space in between. Besides, formal just wouldn't work out here....ask JanC, she spent last weekend here. She can tell you about wild and wooly for sure.
Hi Karen/NY - thank you....so how's the condo garden coming along? Are your wildflowers doing well?
Bana, you are so kind!
Oh, we're all so envious of that lovely garden, Vera. Southern graciousness at its best, for sure.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Vera Bigalow--how cute, it's really a good looking daylily. Your plants are lovely. So many in bloom and looking so good. I'm sure that the rain helped but it's the work that you do that makes the garden so great!
OMG, your gardens are beautiful. TFS
FFG, Paws & Owie, thank you. Y'all are making me blush!!
Wow you have created a great cottage look! Just love the mix of flowers. It's all perfect & lovely!

thanks again girls. I'll post more pictures later...don't want to be a board hog!!
also, anyone willing to make the trip is welcome to come for a visit. Better use a GPS because I don't think the "holler" is on a road map!
Hi Vera. It's been raining every day around here so I haven't had a chance to see how many flowers are coming up. I'll try to get there by the end of the week(if it doesn't rain again). Thanks for asking.
Soooo Lovely! Think we like the same style of gardening! I have a white lilac & its an Ellen Wilmont!

Great photos of your lovely garden. You got a nice shot of the two fuzzy bumbles on the coneflower
