Garden Tour Finale

This is the final garden on the garden tour.
If you missed the first two gardens you can see them here.
You can see the third garden here.
And the fourth garden here.

Actually, this garden wasn't part of the official garden tour
but I thought it definately should have been.
This garden belongs to my parents.

All of the flowers in the pots my dad grew himself in his greenhouse.

The chokecherry trees are full of berries
and I am dreaming of chokecherry syrup on my pancakes.
I can't wait until they are ripe!

I don't know the name of this plant
but it thrives in the hot sun and blooms forever.

The roses are beautiful.

The bachelor buttons are in full bloom.
Now I wonder why they are called bachelor buttons?

There is a whole row of these gorgeous pansies
along the north wall of the greenhouse.

These beautiful ruffled poppies grow along the end of their garden area.

They are absolutely stunning.

And you can't have a farm without a few kittens.
They posed so nicely for me!

~Finding the amazing in the simple~
Thanks so much for stopping by!
