Summer flowers

Here are a few flowers that are blooming or have recently bloomed

The Coneflowers are Blooming

The Lilies have already bloomed.  I'm not sure what the name of this lily is or where I got it.  But it sure was pretty.

The orange Daylilies are done blooming but here are some pictures while they were blooming

Here is what the front of my house looked like when I moved in 4 years ago.

Here is what it looks like now after adding window boxes.

I added some mini hostas under the window boxes last year but they are pretty sparse yet.  I had never heard of them before last year.

I hope all of your gardens have survived the heat we had last week.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you next time.

Portland, Maine


This was a quick trip I took with my cousin, Connie, to Portland, Maine a few years ago.  I love New England and the East Coast.
