  1. Thank you for the LOVELY pictures of your garden! I will make them stay in my mind’s eye through the day. 🙂

    1. You are welcome. Thank you for sharing my blog world. As I’m writing back to you the next morning, I hope they stayed and I hope they remained lovely. 🙂

    1. They do seem happy. But why wouldn’t they be. This summer we’ve had ample rain, lots of sunshine a very little punishing heat. Happy flowers! Have a great day, Amy. 🙂

    1. Thank you. Yes, we are blessed. We know it and appreciate it. It is my genuine pleasure to share. 🙂

  2. Browsing through your garden photos blesses my brain. I feel refreshed from all the flashes that have removed me from a restful position. Blessings to you, Jim…

    1. Thanks. I’m glad you feel refreshed, though I hope it is OK you were removed from a restful position. Me, I’m always removed from such, happily tending the garden (when not working my job, of course). Blessing to you too. Have a wonderful day. 🙂

    1. Thanks. I like to make people smile, but you already noticed that, I’m sure. I’m glad you liked the limerick – thank you for letting me know. 🙂

    1. Thanks. We go through color phases. Right now purpley-pink and yellow are showing quite dominantly. Along with orange, white and red. 🙂

  3. Gorgeous photos! What are the ones in the second and last photos? I have a clump of them in my yard and I’d like to move them but I’m not sure where to put them (sun or shade) and what time of year is best for transplanting.

    1. They are phlox. I hope to write a post soon about their curious tendency to change colors over the years. They like sun though would tolerate a little shade, I think. They have thrived in the well-drained soil in Mary’s garden. In fact, they tend to the invasive and I pull seedlings every spring. I recommend moving them in the spring. One other thing – they are not deer resistant. I’ve transplanted lots of the seedlings to the ‘west side’ but they can’t ever take hold as they are munched on by the deer. Thanks for reading. Have a great day! 🙂

      1. Thanks! There’s a stables across the road from us so all the neighborhood deer hang out over there – that’s probably why my phlox are not getting munched. Thanks for the transplanting advice – they’re in pretty deep shade right now, so I’ll find them a sunnier home next spring!

    1. Shoot! I should have named the post Pinky-pink and Yellow. Not as catching, though, don’t you think? 🙂 We have milkweed around here. I’m not sure if it is ‘swamp milkweed.’ Have a good day and keep the excellent, informative posts coming. It is nice that some people like you, who actually know a lot, share your information with people like me, who could use to learn a lot. 🙂

    1. Thanks. Taking a deep breath and enjoying anything is good for us. I’m really glad you could do it with these pictures. Have a great day. 🙂

  4. Everything’s truly fascinating – the place itself, flowers, colors, photos… enjoy your world to the fullest! 🙂

    1. Thanks. I didn’t know what to expect when I started blogging but I have found that I can make meaningful connections with people around the world. At least they feel meaningful, even if I don’t know them. So, yes I do try to enjoy my world to the fullest and it is my genuine pleasure to share. Have a great day. 🙂

  5. Hi Jim, What a wonderful riot of colour! Although we are in the depths of winter here, the bushland is glowing with the yellow of early flowering wattles.

    1. Thanks. You must be in the depth of winter as we are at the height of summer. 🙂 I bet the bushland is quite gorgeous. Enjoy your winter. I assume it remains relatively mild, what with the plants you have shown that can keep growing. And enjoy that blooming bushland. 🙂
