Enjoying Summer!

I don't think I've enjoyed my gardens more than I have this Summer.
The Winter seemed to last so long here at my cottage at the lake.
Now that things are blooming, I just can't seem to get enough of all of the flowers

I apologize that my posts are all about the gardens here at the Lakehouse.
The growing season here is just so short, I don't seem to have enough time for my favorite hobby.

I know I keep talking about my Secret Garden, and you are probably getting bored with it by now.
Today I took a few shots of the middle of the garden.

The brick path will go right through the middle here, and out the gate.
I'm still waiting for the rest of the Hollyhocks to open.
There are LOTS of buds on the Roses, too.
It's time to water everything.
I hope you are enjoying your Summer as much as I'm enjoying mine.


  1. I feel like I've just taken the most beautiful garden stroll, Debbie! Your gardens are looking just amazing! What's the sweet little pink flower in photo 3 & 4? So cute! Hope you avoid the Japanese beetles up there, girl. They just arrived down here and are devouring everything in site. AGH!!!

  3. I don't think any of us are tiring of your gorgeous Secret Garden Debbie! It looks so beautiful! I'd be out there all day, soaking up all the beauty:)

  4. How are you ever going to leave all of that behind? Is your place still up for sale? Oh, girl- to have to have it perfectly clean all this time would drive me insane!
    We are having a good summer here, too. SO much to do outside, but we are finally getting caught up. Going to be picking bean greens in just a few minutes. ;)
    Enjoy your secret garden...but if you blog about it all the time, is it still a secret???? Bwahahahahaha!
