A Day in the Country...
Come for an after dinner walk with me. Don't forget the bug spray though!
Right by the back door is the yellow and blue and white garden. The delphiniums and foxgloves are blooming now:
Nearby, the yarrow and erigeron are at the base of clematis that finished blooming.
By the laundry pole, more yarrow, this time with echinacea.
By the garage, the rainbarrel is decorated:
On the side of the garage, rose Astrid Lindgren is blooming.
By the barn-
Rose John Cabot did not feel like climbing and so is sprawling!
The lilies have just begun opening there.
Rose Abraham Darby grows there along with tons of feverfew.
Up close, Abraham looks like he's got a headset on...or perhaps earmuffs?
Then in the vegetable garden there's an obelisk where clematis Prince Charles and C.Polish Spirit duke it out for supremacy. The asparagus has shot up behind them.
Tomorrow, this brand new clematis may open. I wonder what it will look like!!!!
That's all for now. Off to have a bit of strawberry soup. Have you ever made it? It's really good! I learned to enjoy fruit soups when visiting Hungary many years ago. This recipe has balsamic vinegar in it believe it or not! YUM!
Hope you enjoyed your walk and didn't get sprayed by the sprinkler.
