Wheelie Wednesday - July

Hi everyone!  It's me, Autumn.
Remember the daylilies that Francesca told you about last week?  Mom couldn't remember what color she bought?   This one just opened yesterday and it's a pretty peachy color!
Check out this black-eyed Susan!   The flower is so big I could almost wear it as a hat!
The Cook's purple wisteria is in bloom again with no frost nipping in July and this time the leaves are out so it's not quite so striking.  It still smells good though and the bees love it!
This is our vege garden this year.  Mom didn't want to plant one because with the barn project she knew she wouldn't have the time for veges and flowers both but dad insisted so other than mom dumping grass cuttings around the tomato cages, it's dad's project!
Can you see all of those tall sunflowers?  Every single one of them reseeded itself.  They are monsters already and it's only July 7th!
I need to tell Mitch that there are apples on HIS tree! He's going to be very happy to hear this news!
How we love the color of our butterfly bush!
See you all next Wednesday!

Love, 
Autumn

Everything seems to be growing well. What a surprise when you can't remember what you planted and it comes out.

We love the color of your Butterfly bush too! All of your flowers are very pretty! We THINK we have a sunflower growing in a pot on our deck. Some birdie must have planted there!

Ahhhh...we love the garden. Thanks once again for the tour. Our Flutterby bushes are more blue and less purple, but we likes to watch the flutterbies just the same.

Autumn - you are the most wonderful garden hostess - and today's offerings are sooooo beautiful! We have to apologize for not having visited in so long - Mom gets a post done and then my sis's demands get in the way of visiting once we begin. We thank you for coming over to see us. We've been worried about the effects of the scorched east coast - are you okay? Stay cool M & M...
Big Hugs xoxoxo

What beautiful flowers, Maggie and Mitch! Your parents are terrific gardeners (I'm sure you two help!).
Will look forward to the recipes and pictures of food that will surely follow when the garden is harvested:-)

Your buddy,

P.S. Thanks for passing along the anti-squirrel meeting under the Elm-it will be a nightly event until the world is rid of those glorified rats!

We have never seen a peach daylily - very sweet!!! We bet Mitch will be happy to hear about those apples. Thanks for the garden tour, Autumn. Glad you wore your pretty bonnet to protect you from that hot sun.

Oh Autumn...I bet you needed your sunbonnet out there today dear Girl!! It's horridly hot! Thank you for the lovely tour of your garden. Mumsie has NO idea of the names of things and she soooooo loves learning!!!

And those PURPLE butterfly bushes...simply georgous!

Please take care in this nasty heat and don't let Maggie and Mitch overexert themselves. Scruffy ran around too much tonight...it was still nasty after dinner!

Kisses, kids!

Stardust said...

It's like undoing presents at your garden! Pretty daylily, mom has picked a good one. My eyes bulge at the size of your vegetation area, your family doesn't need the market for greens anymore! And apples? Fantastic!

You must share some tips with me, hopefully next year.. =D

Sherry said...

My butterfly bush is purple, too, though I've seen pink ones. It has a wonderful, delicate scent.

Thor said...
