It is a 90 degree day here and we are ready for the heat.

 

Cedar wax wings, butterflies, bees, hummers, all busy in the garden today.

 

The lilacs are still pushing out their scent.  Rhodos new growth is amazing and hydrangeas are busy developing their flowers.  If the hydrangeas are as good as the lilacs and Rhodos, we will have quite a show.

 

Enjoy your stroll through my garden this July 5th.  LM

That is so beautiful!  I so miss lilacs and peonies.  Grew up in NY and moved to FL many years ago when I married.  

Your gardens remind me of my Grandmothers.  You are blessed!  Enjoy!

What lovely gardens. They . are a lot of work, but I'm sure a labor of love.

@Fltricia , I am from Nova Scotia, so not that far from New York.  I am happy to bring you a good memory.  We are blessed indeed.  LM

Very lush and plush, you have done an amazing job. Maintaining it has to be a lot of work. Beautifully done. Thank you for sharing with us.
