My grand plans for doing more flower photography this summer went by the wayside. However, I managed to briefly inspire myself long enough to snap some photos of the beautiful flowerbeds along the front of our cottage. According to the file data, I took these photos on my birthday, about 8 weeks ago. Perhaps the tardiness in the image editing and posting is indicative of the current slump in my creative spirit, LOL.
Mother Nature has been overly exuberant in providing rainfall in our area this summer. In fact, we are on a record-breaking pace for yearly precipitation. The daylilies loved it so much that they showed their gratitude with an abundance of blooms. Their annual show is now over, but they were glorious while they lasted!
At our current Grey Havens cottage, we have a mere fraction of flowerbed space of our former place. But we are grateful that our yard work is very manageable. We can spend more time sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch, instead of spending dozens of hours a week tending the garden spaces.
As you can see from the pictures, we like to put out little American flags for special patriotic holidays, like the 4th of July. We love our country, and we’re not shy about proclaiming it!
Marty, you little ruffian! What are you doing sneaking into my photo shoot? That rascally rabbit…
I hope you enjoyed my little garden tour. Better late than never!
