Floral garden pics


The hydrangeas are in full bloom now; and pics here were taken today.  Growing on the southern side of the house, they pick up the morning sunshine through till about 11 a.m.
   
Chrysanthemum and November lily have petered out now with the heat and humidity, but these snapshots taken while they were still holding out.

 
 
lemon thyme, the bees love it

Beautiful Carole. Lemon thyme - my absolute favourite of all of the thymes.
We had another 6 inches of snow yesterday. It is going to be a very long winter this year.

I'm ready to trade you seasons now! It's turned dark and dreary here. Not bitter cold yet, but may get snow this weekend. I still have a few green things that tried to sprout again this Fall when it seemed like our "second spring" was coming. No beauties like this have appeared though!

Love them all but the hydrangea with 2 colors of blooms is so outstanding!
