Oriental lilies are beginning to shine.


A few can make the whole garden fragrant.




and coneflowers

are now joined by white phlox that will bloom till frost.

    Thanks, Darla.

    Just heavenly!

    You are so right. There is a lot of beauty in the world if you look for it and encourage it.

  8. Balisha says:

    Wow! Is all I can say. What beauty we have to look at in our world.

    Thanks, Frances,
    All is glorious around here. This morning it is so cool making it a pleasure garden indeed.

    Hi Donna, what a fabulous bed of daylilies! You have really done it right, massing them like that. The orientals are so close to opening here, any day now. Their sweet smell makes a summertime garden, and yours is wonderful, well done! Love that first lily shot too. 🙂

    Thank you, Betsy,
    We have difficulty growing roses here. We are plagued with Japanese bettles. I am enjoying yours.

  12. mothernaturesgarden says:

    I love the Oriental lilies. I think they are my favorite…today at least. I am glad you like.

  13. mothernaturesgarden says:

    Thank you, Gail. The birds come and sit on the spitting frog’s head to get a drink.

  14. Titania says:

    Very stately, elegant Lilies and a great display of Day lilies. You have a wonderful summer garden. The mingling colours are a visual pleasure.

  15. Gail says:

    Donna…you have created a beautiful and charming garden! I loved the water rippling effect with the shot of the pond! gail

  16. mothernaturesgarden says:

    I have pink lilies, Janet, but i prefer the white ones.

  17. mothernaturesgarden says:

    Beauty is a gift. Thanks for the Annabelle suggestion, Dee. I’ll try it and be expectantly waiting for the magic to happen. I never give up.

  18. Janet says:

    LOVE that Casa Blanca!!!!!

  19. MN, your garden is lovely this time of year. Just so you know, ‘Annabelle’ Hydrangea arborenscens is about the only Hydrangea I can grow. I think it’s because it isn’t a macrophylla, but instead, a native of Illinois. If you can find it, I bet it will grow in your garden too. Such beauty is a gift isn’t it?~~Dee

    Hi Donna, Your garden is absolutely gorgeous. Your lilies and daylilies are putting on a show. We have some very similar to yours which I have posted already —and will post more soon.. BUT–we don’t have nearly as many as you do. With not much sun and so many Roses, we don’t have much room left… ha… Anyhow—yours are just fabulous!!!!!

    Hope you are staying COOL this hot weekend.

  21. mothernaturesgarden says:

    I’m glad you think so, Tina.

  22. tina says:

    Most beautiful.

  23. mothernaturesgarden says:

    Thanks, Jan.
    I had to water them today. It was one of our hottest days which I know is a joke to you knowing where you live, because they were looking straggly.

  24. Jan says:

    Oh, all your daylilies are so gorgeous. What a display.

    Always Growing

    I agree, Tatyana. We have to learn about photography to share these glorious garden moments.

  26. Tatyana says:

    Beautiful music and wonderful shots! Blooms on the first two pictures look so real! Of course they ARE real, but you understand what I mean – I feel as I can touch them! I think blogging teaches us photography, too.
