WOW! Is all that in your yard???

Ah...summer! It's wonderful to see life in full bloom. Whenever it gets very hot, rather than complain, I remind myself what it's like in January.

Wow, beautiful!
And I was just thinking to myself the other day, what annuals could I plant to make a rainbow garden to amuse my little daughter, and I got stuck on blue...is that salvia annual or perennial?
Your blog is terrific. I also loved the Sandy Hook walk with your old dog. Our old dog would have loved it too (he's a 12 1/2 year old Golden, and more precious than real gold to me)!

I *LOVE* your Rose of Sharon hedge :) Just gorgeous.

And a wonderful rainbow it is! Great photos, Laura.

The salvia is an annual here - think it's salvia guarantica. I love salvias!

Michelle: those bushes started out as pencil-thin sticks! Sometimes I wish they were the *single* rose of sharon variety, but they don't make as nice a hedge.

I like everything. Do you have a pond, or a water feature in your yard?

I love the flower tour, Laura. :)
