Must get some Studio work done today...but your welcome to stroll through my yard...

As everything seems to be thriving so well , here are a few more shots of the outside... Hollyhocks are almost ready to bloom... Hot pink!

I love Hostas... they are pretty self-sufficient...

Bittersweet, Lilacs, Rose bushes and False Indigo....We need to get out there and do a little trimming before the Bittersweet completely devours us...

Our day will be rainy today... but that's okay...I need to work down in the studio and accomplish some Jewelry...May your day be a creative one, xoxo~Kathy.


  1. I love your garden shots~ particularly the wheel barrow one:) Have fun in Le Studio ..I like those days~You must show us the hollyhocks when they are in bloom too..I love those .

  2. Peaceful gorgeous respite ... TTFN ~Marydon

  3. Oh what beautiful photos! I love the flowers! What are the purple looking flowers in your last photo? Very pretty!!

  4. Beautiful garden shots! I like your pansy filled wheelbarrow and your white picket fence is so charming!!

    I have hollyhocks that are not as tall as yours and I had to stake them. They were keeling over!! I'm not sure what went wrong...

    I hope you have a wonderful day in your studio creating. It sounds like a fabulous way to spend a rainy day!


  5. Sandra...the tall bush are Lilacs and the shorter flowers on the right are called "False Indigo" They are very short lived but a fantastic blue when flowering, thanks for asking...xoxo~Kathy.

  6. your garden is lovely! Thank you for the stroll! Hope to see your jewelry creations when finished!

    Love, Dana and Daisy

  7. Hi Kathy, I love your garden. Everything is sooo beautiful and just so peaceful looking. What a pleasure....just to look!

    Hugs, Barb

  8. It all looks just beautiful!!


  9. I enjoyed walking through your yard. It is cool and beautiful!

  10. I love the pink and orange flowers together. Such a great combination. Beautiful garden!

  11. Even my tried and true hostas look terrible due to our terrible heat wave in Texas. So sad. I had one that looked a lot like yours: lush! I lost one hollyhock before it ever bloomed. I'm coaxing another one to make it. I love your old wheel barrow. Always wanted one!

  12. Your garden reminds me of the one I had in the Pacific Northwest, just South of Seattle. So nice and GREEN. I had an English style cottage garden.

    I now live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas. Big difference!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me...I am always encouraged by your kind expressions and thoughtful comments....Know that you are loved....xoxo Kathy.
