"Bloom where you are planted"

~Mary Engelbreight


It's such a lovely time in the garden right now.  We seem to be getting enough rain that everything is in bloom or rebloom at the same time. Here is my English border...aka the big rambling mess which I love and Dino does not...in the front garden.

 
and this is "Dianna"....my favorite Rose of Sharon ~ pure white and blooming way early this year.  Please ignore my two flag stone pathway...it's a work in progress :)

We also have been blessed many times over with peaches this year.
 
Enough to share with one of our many bunnies, Lydia calls her "Petunia".  She never leaves and will sometimes just lay on her side and nibble away!


Sorry that I've been so quiet.  I miss you all.   Lots of family activities and trips going on over here.  I'll be back to normal in August with lots to share.

Sending big hugs,
Jenn :)

Hi Jenn,

Lovely to see your pretty garden, as mine is bare at this time of the year. Just a few lavenders flowering and that is about it.
The bunny is so cute and I imagine he would be very happy making a meal of your beautiful peaches.
Enjoy your summer trips, with the family. It really is the best time of the year.

Hugs
Carolyn

Dear Jenn ~ Your garden is lovely...and your peach tree...be still my heart! I should be quite like Petunia...lying on my side, nibbling away, and never leaving such a magical place.

Happy day!

Warm hugs,
Judy
