Coming Along Nicely

 

This morning was  heavy rains for the best part of the morning  but now the sun has come out , the winds were blowing  high  but have  slowed down and the humidity is stifling as all the moister is on it’s way back up to the sky as the sun is beaming down  .

All my gardens are coming  along nicely , yup even the weeds are and that is an every second day chore to try and keep my gardens looking nice but heck just one of the things I enjoy doing  , being in my gardens !

I am pleased at how well the front garden has done this year as in the past years for some reason the front was a tuff one to get that just right colour and look I was aiming for !

We have a lot of these butterfly’s this year , they are the Red Admiral and they have been  feasting on my cone flowers , at one point I saw 5 of them all on the same Coneflower plant but I couldn’t get a photo of them all as one has to be very quiet and in walking towards them as they pick up the slightest vibration and POOF !! off they go ! Thanks Miggs lol !

My sweet pea bush is doing great this year lots of tinny little flowers have bloomed on it now , it took at least 3 years for this to happen .

                               So as the title of this post says , Everything is coming along  nicely and we are enjoying

                                                                                every second of it all !.

                                I did a post way back of the dog trailer and boat and trailer we put up for sale , well

Your gardens are looking lovely. My sweet peas are growing and growing but no blooms yet :(

Vee said...

Miggs looks very comfortable. Sometimes it just helps so much to get the old coat removed. So much easier for everything.

Your gardens look delightful! Didn't see any weeds.

DeniseinVA said...

I expect Miggy is thankful for the summer cut. Your photos of your garden and Miggy, the birds and butterflies are gorgeous! Happy day to you :)

TexWisGirl said...

Linda said...

Your garden looks lovely...we had the threat of rain today...had a few drops this morning while I was gardening...then nothing! Miggs Summer cut is cute...she looks comfy! Happy Monday!!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

We could use some of those rains here to cool things down and water the plants, a chore I really dislike on hot days, like we have now. The flower gardens are looking good, Elaine, but as yiu waid weeding is work! Miggs looks great in her summer cut.

Your flowers and gardens are really beautiful! So much colour. I love the white clematis growing up that big old tree. It really shows up there. Enjoy the summer days. Pam
