How does your garden grow

June is usually a good month for my garden. I was out taking some pictures of it this weekend. Below are some poppies and catmint that are blooming near our front sidewalk.

I'm not very good at remembering plant names, and I don't remember the name of these roses, but they are the most fragrant~I love them. They are shrub roses which we have planted along the chicken yard fence.
In this corner I have a white bleeding heart and hostas. I used an old porch column to mount a Welcome sign and birdhouse on. In the foreground by the lamp are violets and to the right more catmint.
A little squirrel statue among the violets and catmint.
I used a deck post from Home Depot and an old enamel basin to make a bird bath. The lilies, which keep multiplying, are blooming behind it.

It was a quiet weekend here just working around the house Saturday~going to the feed store, moving and stacking firewood, and a little housecleaning. Sunday after church and tea at Panera's I worked on the patchwork bag I started some time ago~hope to have pictures soon. Hope your weekend was wonderful.

  3. I love your garden/yard. I have never seen any of those flowers before! I have always wanted to see a real poppy. Do they put you to sleep like on The wizard of Oz? I love the bird bath too.

  4. Oh is your house got wooden slats on the outside. I'd really like that, so stylish. It's not really a style that is built in Wales.

  6. Lovely pictures! I think you have taken them from very nice angles. Your garden seems very idyllic. And your birdbath looks nice too, and good for the little birds. :o)

  7. Beautiful garden. The colour of the poppy combined with the catmint is just lovely. I'm presently trying to tame my sleeping winter garden that did not have a lot of attention over the summer. Wonderful birdbath - do the birds use it a lot?

  8. Me again, I tried to comment on your aprons the other day but blogger wouldn't let me. I'm very interested in the peg apron so please show it if you make it. Hopefully when I get my digital camera I'll have a few completed projects to post
