We had a few especially nice summer days around here, so beautiful that I´d like to bottle them up for January when we´re in the depth of winter misery. Ah well, better not to think of January but enjoy the goodness of July! I do realize that my pictures are very repetitive but here are a few from an evening walk through the garden. My cutting "garden" is above - spot the cat?
My adorable Emma girl enjoying the evening... on top of the pumpkin patch, as you do!
Last autum I planted hydrangeas along the fence to our neighbor. They are of the "Limelight" variety and while they´ll need a few more years to really shine I think they´re so nice already.
White echinacea, my love - and that thistle again! In how many posts in a row can I include a picture of it? We will see!
...and last but not least, a few pictures from the walled garden where the phloxes are so pretty now! We did a little summer movie screening this Saturday (hence all the chairs in the background of the third picture). It was a lovely evening all around. How I love summer.
