What's Growing in Your Garden?

Went out the door this morning and noticed I am still getting blooms in my "English" type flower garden. (I have a very small garden, 10ft x 10ft - so I cram lots of flowers in that small space so it does look like the English gardens I have seen in my past travels.)

Even with the unseasonably hot weather, my garden seems to be "weathering" it. I haven't watered the garden this year and have relied on the few rain showers we have had recently to revive the blooms. My favorite is the gardenia - love it's own brand of heady perfume.

And, I only do perennials or those that re-seed themselves - I have no patience to plant each and every spring or fall.

My garden includes a hardy hybiscus, red roses, yellow roses, gardenias, peonies, love-in-the-mist, bluebells, sedum, day lilies, calla lilies, hydrangea, and the mailbox flower (clematis).

What grows in your garden???


  1. Linda, your garden looks gorgeous! I'm currently cleaning mine up from the torrential downpour over the weekend (I live in a low area and the rain just comes down my road like a whitewater rapids). I've been putting squash and such around my cannas and lillies and really liking how it is all turning out.

  2. Thnx, Vicky! I was surprised to see my gardenias re-blooming but I welcome them and the perfume. Linda
