The Jackmanii Climatis just popped in the last few days. This is one side of it
where it grows from the ground.
This is the other side of the trellis and the climatis is flopped over the top.
You can just barely see the blossoms forming on the Pee Gee hydrangea bush.
It looks like it will be loaded again this year.
These lilies are as tall as I am - about 5' 2"! Aren't they gorgeous?
I transplanted them to this spot last summer and they seem to like it.
Hosta blooms. There was a bee crawling right up into the blossoms.
Purple Coneflower bud almost ready to burst open.
Hydrangea blossom. This plant was a purchased at Easter in 2009 as a house plant.
I planted it in a garden and it actually grew - lots of leaves - until this year
when this one blossom came. Love it! I hope it survives another year.
There was 3 feet of snow drift on this garden last winter!
It was a beautiful day after a few cool, cloudy and rainy ones.
I went for a walk and when I came home decided to go and get those
raspberries picked. I have to say I've never picked them before!
Just off a wild patch but not at a U-Pick. It was so easy!
The rows were nicely kept with lots of space between.
The view was gorgeous. I could hear birds singing and the neighbour's
rooster crowing - a lot! I need to take my camera there just to take pictures.
When I got home I made this:
Two Medium and 1 small freezer jam with some left over for dessert!
This is the first time I've made raspberry freezer jam, which is hubby's favorite.
It is a long holiday weekend here in New Brunswick and many other provinces.
Monday, August 1, is the New Brunswick Day holiday.
We hope to go to Cornhill Nursery on Sunday afternoon. It's about 1 1/2 hours away
near Moncton. It's a very beautiful spot with many wonderful plants (for sale) and a
lovely lunch room called the Cedar Cafe. I'll be taking my camera :-)
Go to http://www.cornhillnursery.com/ to learn more. According to
the website the roses are still blooming and it's daylily week!
And for all you U 2 fans out there. Moncton is the place to be, or maybe not, on Saturday evening!
Bono is finishing up his 360 tour for an outdoor concert at Magnetic Hill - THE best
outdoor concert site in the Maritimes. We won't be there. :-(
I finally got around to weeding the flower beds yesterday. I've been putting it off for weeks.
I seemed to have so much energy so I just kept going.
I even drove the John Deere around the yard last night! (mowing grass!!)
Thanks so much for all your visits and comments. You are all so kind!
One of you asked if I'd be building the retaining wall around the garden myself.
Hubby will be doing the work and I'll be wearing the white hard hat!
In other words, I'll be
telling instructing him on how I want it done. :-)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, especially my Canadian friends
who will be celebrating a long weekend! Stay safe and have fun!!
I am joining a new party for the first time at Tootsie's
