  1. Hi Nan: Beautiful, beautiful flowers, thanks so much for posting them.

    I should very much like to be included in your book draw. After reading the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, this book sounds like it would be a very interesting read.

  5. Mibsy, that poppy is so amazing; it stops me in my tracks!

    Lisa - June is the time for them. After this, there won't be any purple. It's so amazing to me.

  6. My garden is all purple and white at this time of year and the bees and butterflies just love it. I will be trying to identify some of your plants to add to my collection.

  7. Such pretty flowers. I love them all. My Iris are dying back now. I've got my tiger lillies getting ready to bloom for July.

  8. Thank you, Margaret and Susan!

    Monix, you know what? I'm going to go into the post and note what they are. Thanks for giving me the idea!

    Hip Chick, wasn't there a disease the tiger lilies got a few years back? Did yours get hit?

  9. Gorgeous flowers and photos, Nan!! I love that poppy, but then I always love a splash of red amidst all the other colors.

    I've been busy digging in the dirt today, planting the last of the impatiens. I think I can finally sit back and relax and enjoy my garden. Oh, wait, I still want to plant a couple of roses and a peony bush and... ;) It never ends, does it?

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
