A Walk In My Garden

My fairy roses are happy, happy!

In spite of all the rain and not much sun.

My cone flowers are making a showing.

My Stella Doro lilies are happy
and some interesting leaves for interest! 

My lavender is starting to go by. I have not had the time to
make any lavender bottles go back to see the how to.

Since my mint is growing wild I made some
mint ice tea. and oh is it gooooood.

Well the camping trip is history and I am happy to say we survived.
and not much rain.

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.

Your flowers are very happy and gorgeous.
That lavender bottle looks pretty simple to do but my lavender is gone. It was getting pretty big in a bed that needed to be dug up and I never replaced it for one reason or another.

Dolly was right about putting up with the rain if we want a rainbow.

I'm glad that you are back from your camping trip safe and sound.
Hugs,
JB

You are surrounded by lots of pretty colors. Those lilies are beautiful.
Glad your camping trip was successful and not much rain. We didn't get any either - guess the weather girl was wrong (again)

Your flowers are so lovely, and I especially like those unusual leaves on that one plant! I just bought a Mojito Mint plant, so my daughter and I can make some mojitos. I'm not a drinker, but I love minty things!

Love love your garden! Your flowers are gorgeous and so healthy looking.
I miss my lavender it did not come back this year.
I read your computer crashed. I am so sorry. Mine is giving me problems and is real slow. Along with issues from Blogger I have not been posting.
Today I am visiting the library so I can catch up with a few friends on line.
Love
Maggie
