Whenever we are away I always wonder
how the yard and garden are faring
so one of the first things I do when we get home
is take a tour of the yard and garden.
This is the first flower bed you see when you drive in.
It is my only shade flowerbed
but it is thriving this year.
The daylilies add a wonderful pop of color.
I was concerned how some of my flower pots would do
without their daily watering but they were fine :)
The chili peppers turned from green to red.
The pumpkins and cantaloupe over doubled in size!
And the spaghetti squash is producing lots of squash
and baby watermelons are beginning to appear.
I have been so blessed with a very bountiful garden this year.
The beans are almost done for the season
and the peppers are large and healthy.
We were able to pick our first cucumber
and the corn is filling out.
The strawberries are continuing to produce
and are nice and sweet.
The flowers in the garden are blooming
and bring me such joy with their beauty
while I harvest the vegetables.
The bachelor buttons with their various colors.
Dahlias and stocks.
My forgotten garden is also coming along nicely.
The light blue mushroom almost glows
surrounded by greenery.
I added this little solar light with a blue jay on top.
The blue jay is my daughter's favorite bird.
If you look closely near the back
you can see another solar light with a cardinal on top.
Cardinals are my favorite birds.
I also added a trellis in the corner.
It was wonderful to come home and see
all the beautiful blooms.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
