It's June 26 and the first weekend of the Summer.
Sharon wanted to show everyone haw things had turned out
so she took the camera and walked around the garden.


A new addition to the deck
 
   
The Peonies are right on schedule this year
   
 
   
 
   
The hay rake has become the home of the 
tomato plants

The tiger lilies are just about read to bloom
   
 
   
 
   
The stone walkway look so peaceful
   
The side garden is filling in but a lot of the plants have been moved to a better location with more light.
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
The High Bush Blueberries are
going to bear fruit this year
   
 
   
 
   
The weeping willow seems to get bigger every year 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
 
 
 It's hard to believe what a change 
can take place in ten day.
All the flowers are in bloom now.
The following pictures were taken on July 5
 
   
 
   
The tiger lilies are just about ready to bloom
   
The stone walkway is surrounded by flowers
   
The purple and white bell flowers 
seem to growing everywhere
   
Those purple and white bell flowers again
   
 
   
And again
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Pinks are starting to come to life
It's July 19 and almost another three weeks has passed and the garden is doing extremely good. 
It seems all the wet weather followed by the
sun really helped this year.
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
The Rose bush is really showing it's colors
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
Buddy is checking to make sure everything is OK
   
Yep, things are just fine
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
 
 
The Wishing Well garden always looks nice.
 
 
The bear spot under the Honeysuckle
is now a small garden.
 
 
That old wheelbarrow is put to good use
   
The Sedum and Rudbeckia are 
lining the side of the road
   
Look at those tomato plants grow.
I think putting them by the old hay rake helped.
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
Sharon is trying to make the Pallet Woodshed
look a bit nicer by adding a Folly
   
Now to have a look at the back yard and
the Old Windmill
   
The Mallow is going through the roof
   
The grape vines have taken over the trellis this year.
   
 
   
The lighthouse is marking the high bush blue berries
   
   
Looking out back towards the Avon River
   
 Well it's August 6 and the garden is at 
the height of it's summer beauty.
 
   
The Caster Beans are really surprising us this year 
 
 
 
 
 
   
Just look at the size of those leaves.
the flowers will be out any day now.
   
You can see that we are going to have a good crop 
of grapes this year.
   
Sharon has spent a good deal of time on the new front
garden this season and it has paid off.
   
 
   
Everything is just do full and beautiful
including the old wheelbarrow
   
 
   
 
   
If you look closely you will notice Poppies everywhere.
They grow like weeds in our yard but are so nice Sharon
just leave most of them there.
   
 
   
 
   
The Scarlet Runners have taken over the wood shed
   
The climbing roses are finally showing some life.
In a year or so they should cover this side of the shed.
   
 
   
 
   
Those Poppies again
   
The Hollyhocks surprised me this summer
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
Next to the lighthouse is where the blueberries are planted.
We have been picking some in the second season.
   
Sharon added two more blueberry plants this summer.
   
 These are a few pictures taken on August 10
 
 
 
The Cana Lilys have just one bloom so far
but it's a beauty
   
 
   
 
   
The Caster Beans are just about ready to flower
   
 
   
 
   
These Lilies are at the front of the house 
and greet all our visitors
   
 
   
August 20 is here and things still have lots of color
The stately Hollyhock

The caster bean is flowering again
   
It's going to be a good season for the gapes.
 
 
It is now September 3 and things still look good
The well garden turned out quite nice.
This is the first season for it
   
The Caster Beans are really looking good.
Sharon found a new home for them this year
and it suited them fine
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
   
 September 11
 
 
 
 
 
We have had a number find our page while 
searching for Caster Bean Flowers.
