  1. So very lovely. Thanks for always sharing your garden with us. It's hot here (my summer lament). Ha!

  2. Oh, and I thank you, Kay! It was really fun walking around and taking all those photos this morning. Are you swimming in your pool, which I think would be a fine compensation for the heat. :<)

  3. Pretty, pretty, pretty. All your flowers look so fresh and pretty. Your garden must be a wondeful place to be right now.

    Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day for the 1st time. I hope you will show us your blooms again next month.

  4. Thank you, Carol! You are my garden blog queen so your comment means a lot to me. :<) I intend to do this again on July 15.

  5. I've enjoyed visiting your garden on Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Lovely photos.

  6. Nan, What a fun thing to participate in! And, aren't your flowers beautiful? I wish I were strolling through the garden with you, hearing which were your favorites, and whether any came as a "start" from a friend, and that sort of thing. :)

  7. What lovely flowers you've got. I like the Lupins especially because I can't grown them myself (the slugs love them too much). Great pics of lovely blooms. My blooms are up too, if you're interested.

  8. Your lupine flowers are stunning! Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers for GBBD.

  9. Loving your lupines - I haven't had the best of luck with them - too hot & not moist enough I think.

    Your baptista too is wonderful!

  10. What gorgeous flowers! The lupine are especially lovely to me and remind me of one of my favorite children's books, Miss Rumphius.

  11. What a gorgeous photo essay!! I'm inspired. :)
