Garden Gazing

Garden Gazing

Went out in the gardens with the camera last night to take pictures of some of the flowers we have here around Shiloah Cottage before they stop blooming and are gone. I already missed the lilacs, but here are some of my favorites.

This one is a mock orange with “yellow” leaves. Right now it smelling deliciously “flowery” Linda says. It is supposed to smell like an orange blossom, but I have never been near a real orange tree in bloom, so I wouldn’t know. S3010235.JPG S3010236.JPG

I potted up this fern from the woods….I really like it in this pot S3010237.JPG

This flower is very odd…it looks like it made of paper, closes up a night, and the foliage is very sticky. I have no idea what it is, and I don’t even remember planting it. S3010221.JPG

These are heavenly! I love columbines. This variety has been part of the inspiration for a current design I am working on… S3010205.JPG The babies are so grown up. Here is the batch of chicks S3010222.JPG and here are the ducklings! S3010223.JPG This is one of the last full snowballs of the season S3010220.JPG

This is the lavender, actually one of the lavenders…. S3010210.JPG I think this is German or English lavender, I cannot quite remember…

Those are the pictures for tonight. I have a few more to post, but I really want to get into the studio and do a little sewing before bedtime….It was finally SUNNY today and I spent most of the day out in the yard repairing the fence so the chickens and ducks can get out of their pen and live a little on the “wild” side! I am tired, but it was so good to be outside, and not seeing it rain again! I am not a “sun-worshipper” but I was getting really tired of the rain.
