Flowers in the Summer.

I have had a fun summer of taking pictures.  I spent lots of time outside in the garden watching bees, birds and butterflies. I end up spending more time outside in my garden then I did sewing.  Fall is when I get back to sewing.

I have peonies, lilies, hostas as well as a lot of other perennials.  My garden is mainly perennials with some annuals tucked in for colour.

It has been a hard Summer on the Garden as I need to mulch it as it was dry from lack of rain. I will be getting a couple of yards of mulch delivered soon so I can mulch the gardens.  I will wait as long as I can as the squirrels will remove it all while they are hiding their nuts for the winter.

The bees even liked the freaks in my garden. This cone flower fused two stems together so this is    how the flower turned out. 

So happy to have the Monarchs return this Summer.  I have been waiting to see them for along time. I even have milkweed in my Garden to help them out.  The other fun one I saw in my garden is the Hummingbird Moth at first when I heard it I thought it was a Hummingbird.

So these are a few of all the pictures I took this Garden season, now I have to spend sometime trying to pick 12 of my favourite pictures to use for my 2015 Calendar.

Your summer garden pictures are just LOVELY! We are in Florida and have a fair number of Monarchs, but I cannot, probably from the scorching summers, get the Coneflowers to grow!
I also am just discovering the world of bag-making! Yours are lovely! Such fun to do. I am glad to find this interesting outlet for my sewing bug!
