As you can see, it's a rainy Saturday here at the lakehouse. This mother wren was not very happy with me walking around the cottage garden while she was collecting food for her babies.
They live in a house hidden in the Porcelain Berry Vine growing on the picket fence.
The New Dawn roses are drinking up all of the rain we have been getting this summer. They are so very fragrant! The garden smells wonderful!!
The Coneflowers are maturing nicely. I have been seeing a lot of butterflies feeding on them.
All of the roses are doing well with the rain we've been having, and just enough heat and sunshine to make them happy.
I love these butterscotch daisies, and so do the big old bumble bees!
This Blaze Rose rambles up the garden shed each year. It's an old plant. One of the first roses I planted here.
I like Loosestrife/Speedwell. It pops up here and there in the flower beds.
I especially like the dark pink Veronica that grows in more compact bunches.
I also grow the Gooseneck Loosestrife in the white color.
It's a nice flower to dry for arrangements.
The husband dug up some roses I had growing on the left of this arbor last year, to put in a drainage line. I was NOT happy, although it needed to be done.
This year I have been working on filling in the spot. I can't dig too deep for plantings.....so it's been a challenge.
Hopefully, it will fill in nicely.
Those huge rocks should grow slowly enough.
If not, there is plenty to do inside, I guess.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
