Wow, the first day of summer is here. Doesn’t it seem like only yesterday that I was driving you crazy counting down the days until spring through the Polar Vortex. 🙂 You can flash back to that here.
We have had an almost perfect spring. I have hardly had to use my new Flexzilla garden hose or even a watering can!
Summer is coming in with a near perfect day that will hover around 80 and the garden is responding with some super blooms.
In thinking about summer I began to wonder just how many Popsicles are eaten every summer. I didn’t find the answer to that question, but I did find these yummy looking Popsicle recipes…
Find the recipes here. And, if you find out how many Popsicles are eaten each summer, let me know. 🙂
Flowers celebrating …
These are the flowers that are helping me kickoff summer! (Click on any of the pictures to start the gallery feature.)
Stay cool and have a Popsicle or two!

beautiful flowers, esp the roses, my new dawn is growing good how is yours doing? just bought a purple splash and rambler ghislaine de feligonde, pronounced jis LANE de fell a gond, also bought 3 climbing hydrangea, the butterflies magnolia is not doing well it hasn’t grown any leaves except 2 the garden center said to put fertilizer around it and wait a month. my Canadian roses is not doing well, lost a lot of the top branches but a couple but hopfully it will get strong before winter comes. your clematis are beautiful too. thanks for sharing your garden with us regularly.
I lost my New Dawn Climber over the Potting Shed… Looks bare without it. I posted about it a couple of months ago. Others did ok but a lot of die back. Many roses bounced right back, thankfully. I would love some climbing hydrangeas someday. Let me know how they do!! 🌹💚🌹
you lost it totally? I am so sorry for you, I will keep you posted on the climbing hydrangea it takes about 2-3 years before they bloom but I went ahead and got them because the leaves are variegated. very pretty. we thought we lost the butterfly bushes but they are coming back from the roots.
Your garden is looking just lovely. I know the amount of work that goes into keeping it that way. Well done.
Thank you. It is my pleasure but yes work is involved! LOL Glad you stopped by! Enjoy getting to see your garden too! 🌹💚🌹
