I have been out and about on two more fabulous garden tours,so I am sharing.I have just given up on my garden till cooler weather-except for watering of course.
Let's enter the back garden through these lovely gates. This is a shade garden, and the Good Lord knows we need these in a Mississippi summer!Monster fern!Wouldn't this be a nice place to relax? Love this focal point of the large pot with giant bamboo.
Beautiful hosta. I am joining ,  for Cottage Flora Thursday,and Fertilizer Friday at And

Lovely. I could sit on the swing forever. Those gates are fabulous, too, as is the first container planting. Love garden tours!

Sarah said...

Beautiful. I love garden tours!

I bet it is hot and humid there but the plants are hanging in there and look good. Too hot for you to do much gardening?

I am gearing up for my planting season as it will soon start to get cooler here. Fall and Spring are usually in the low 90's and 80's.

Thanks for joining this weeks Bunny Hop Party!

Your garden is very pretty. The gates are so charming. Shade is a good thing these days!

Nice to tour gardens that have others taking care of them. Mine is like yours just watered enough for it to stay alive. If the winds blows too hard on the hill we will have a huge dust storm. Peace

I just love going on garden tours. These photos are wonderful.
I don't have a flower garden anymore. The heat and drought took every one of them.
I enjoyed seeing these so much.

I wish I could go on a garden tour. What fun.

I love the first container. I can't think of the name of that purple plant....something like purple shiled...I have grown it before and really enjoyed it.

I thank you so much for linking in this week. It is an honor to host Friday's Flaunt and meet new friends and visit the regulars (who are like old friends) who share. I am always excited to tour each post and see the different flowers/ projects and garden art that everyone flaunts. It is a pleasure to tour and see all the gorgeous blooms...and I appreciate each and every link and comment! I hope you will link in again soon!
