How Does Your Garden Grow.....

My back perennial garden is growing with lots of rain this week. I was so lucky yesterday, out in a torrential rain storm with the 3 dogs (on our way to the groomer) with nothing but a sweat jacket for protection. Not one of the finer weather moments I've encountered lately but the rainy weather this week has been making my garden grow.
Colorful threadbare coreopsis......
The roses have been in bloom since earlier this month but the hydrangeas have just started.
Lilies.......
Lilies and more lilies have been blooming thanks to the alternating rain and sun.
How is your garden growing these days?

Lovely flowers! I don't have space for a garden, but I've been thinking of buying a potted orchid for the indoors.

Your garden is beautiful! Right now I only have a couple of flowering plants. I am looking forward to my lilies which are usually mid-summer where I am! ~Val

Gorgeous flowers! My hydrangeas have been blooming since the first week of June but your lilies are ahead of mine ( there are wild daylilies blooming in the ditches around here though. Veggies wise the bunnies are winning a battle w/ me for my lettuce. I am on the 3rd planting and not a leaf for me yet!

Hi Ruth,

Your garden looks great - nothing like a lot of rain to help out.
I love your new Humming bird paintings - I tried to photograph one in my garden but it was moving too fast.
Have a wonderful day.

Hello Ruth,

You have beautiful garden particularly lilies. I like lilies and yours are beautiful indeed.
Here in France we do not have humming birds. I think they need heat and I saw some specimen while travelling in French Indies.

I like very much your blue painting with the humming bird. Very creative.

Thank you very much for your comments on my blog.

I wish you a nice weekend and a peaceful July 4th.
