Garden Daily & A Texture Too!


Taken w/ 70-300mm zoom @ 300mm, f/8.0 @ 1/60 sec. Applied Kim’s DreamIt texture and her SonnetSample that I converted to black & white.

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared my garden daily photos so thought I’d combine that with my Texture Tuesday offering above.

Though I must confess I have not taken pictures every day in the garden, I have been out there most days.


Finally got the pond up and running again and the water lilies expressed their gratitude with a few blossoms.


Mister frog’s throat is a bit clogged so not spitting right now. I shall get out there this week to give him a tonsillectomy!


This variety of Foxglove called Digiplexis ‘Flame’ is new to the garden this year. I fell in love with it at a nursery on Vashon Island.


Meet Scherazade! Not as big as a Stargazer, but every bit as stunning.


I’m not really a fan of the blooms on hosts, but looking at them at this angle makes me reconsider.


I keep thinking my Nelly Moser has finished blooming for the season and then she pushes out a few more. My good fortune!


My Lace Cap Hydranga continues its show through the summer.


The Chickadees that were born here on the property have gotten quite comfortable around me. So lovely to have them here.


Have a beautiful week everyone. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Ahhhhh! A lovely stroll through your garden! I love that lily and your Nelly Moser, just lovely. Our garden begins to look pretty ragged this time of year. My two hydrangea suffered in the past hard winter and I only had one bloom, in spite of TLC. But it’s a beauty, so I savor it every day. As ragged as our garden looks, it’s still better than the lack of color that will be in evidence in several months.

    Oh my goodness Carol! You have so much beauty and color all around, and that sweet little chickadee just adds to the sweetness in your special space. I did chuckle at you giving Frog a tonsillectomy! The hosta blooms are stunning. You’ve given them new beauty to me too (I dug all of our out several years ago). What a treat to walk through your garden. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Oh, Carol, what I wouldn’t give to be able to spend a few hours (days?) in your garden, capturing all the beauty! I WILL make that happen someday, you can be sure.

    first visit here and what a lovely one it was, carol! all your flowers are gorgeous. even with care ours seem to be looking a bit haggard this time of year, but i must say that our sunflowers are still glorious -they just happen to be my favorite, too. :). your corn flowers and the editing you’ve done is so pretty! flowers … what would we ever do without the blessing of their beauty!

  12. Since I have just gotten my internet back thanks to the storm taking my router out from all the lighting we had from that powerful storm we had a few days ago I was not able to see your garden. I so love that foxglove just beautiful and I do love the hostas I understand as they are common but I think they have their beauty. Oh and you know how I love the clematis. Wonderful garden shots. Now among the internet living again and few dollars short.
