Well guys, that on and off rain I mentioned has settled here on the coast and we’re getting all day mist with heavier rain falling at times. It’s really lovely and serene. I enjoy rain in the warmer months, it’s so romantic. The gardens turn lush green, and if it’s hot enough, the steam wafts from the streets. This is what it must be like living in Seattle, I’m craving nothing but café mocha and chai. Paisley and I walked in the mist this morning and then I headed out to the garden to snap a few photos.Today I’m sharing a few new garden treasures and plants too. This urn is one of two I picked up with my mom at a yard sale a few weeks ago. Does that tree look familiar? It’s my little Christmas tree, it kinda adds a nice focal point to our patio. Man it’s green out there!
I snipped a few of these white blooms and went for a white on white look in the living room. I’m not sure what these are, but they might be related to hydrangea. (Farmer Brown says it’s oakleaf hydrangea.)
Have you ever had a plant that you plant and it dies? So you plant it again and the rabbits eat it. Then you plant it one more time because you thought the rabbits might still be hungry. This white beauty is Farmer Brown’s garden love, and garden nightmare. It’s a garden phlox – TAKE THREE or maybe FOUR, but who’s counting. If I pick this pretty bloom I would have some serious story telling to do for sure. I guess I could always blame it on the rabbits. Grin.
Miss Paisley spent the afternoon napping on the family room sofa while I was in the garden.This is our side garden and where the mystery plant is growing. We just cleared out the pathway, the ivy had made it all the way across.They’re calling for even more rain tomorrow afternoon so I guess I’ll be sipping lattés and tea. See you soon.
