We Just Keep Bloomin'

I love summer. I love being warm. I love all the beautiful perennials in our yard. I'm a "pretend" gardener. I like to take credit for the beauty all around our home, but I don't do ANYTHING to my flowers, etc. I don't water them. I don't fertilize them. Nada. Thank you Mother Nature! We're talking pure natural selection here folks. Well I do pull a weed or two and I DID plant forget that first part....I'll just take credit. ;-)

These are called Lollipop lilies, in case you're interested. Aren't they gorgeous. They showed up in a little cardboard box in the mail looking like shriveled up weeds. It's been something like four years since I planted these.....first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap! Fourth year.....GO CRAZY! little kitchen garden is coming along lovely. I snuck a tiny spinach leaf...YUMMY!


  1. Beautiful! I'm Loving your hollycocks. I've been meaning to plant some of my own for years! It might just get done this year.

  2. Your hollyhocks are gorgeous!! My hubby is the Gardner in my family, I love to garden but with work full time and as hot as it gets in SC. My lung condition will not allow me to anymore.

  3. Those hollycocks are gorgeous! I planted some last year and they got some sort of disease (rust I think) and did not come back which I am super bummed about. So I will just have to live vicariously through yours!

  4. I love it all. I need to plant hollyhocks someday. THey are so pretty.

    I'm on year 3 of our lillies. They are so pretty!

  5. you don't do anything to your garden? mine would perish and die if i didn't do anything, although i'd much rather have it your way. after working all day, i hate standing out there in the heat and watering!


I kinda love comments, who doesn't? Nice comments. Only. I'm picky that way. ;-)
