The late spring garden was so beautiful this year. After letting my garden go to weed when I went back to work full time, I've been painfully renovating it the past few years. It's been such a difficult ordeal, but I think I've finally started to see my hard work pay off as the gardens I've completed looked stunning this year.
This little pond garden is right outside my front door. It's cheerful daisies and sound of water greet guests when they arrive to my home.
I have so much of this iris in my garden. It grows and spreads so fast. It's very difficult to divide as the roots are so hard and thick. But it is a pretty plant as the foliage is always attractive even when it's not in bloom.
This pink peony did so well this year, but unfortunately it was at the expense of a crab apple tree. It's planted right under a tree that appears to be dying so it got plenty of sun instead of shade. In previous years, this peony never even bloomed because it didn't get enough sun.

More peonies. I love the deep burgundy red of this one.
And this white beauty I showed you last week, but it was still in bloom looking prettier than ever so I wanted to share more photos. I cupped my hand around the bloom so you could see how large the flowers are. Isn't it just gorgeous?
My favorite clematis is just starting to open up.
Here is a picture of that same dark peony pictured above as seen with it's companion plants in the garden. I love the white background of the Viburnum bush and Goatsbeard.
The spirea bushes are starting to bloom. This white one is always the first to bloom.
Another angle of the Viburnum bush and Goatsbeard with the garden shed in the distance.
I mentioned last week how beautiful the lilac bushes were this year. The lilac bush next to the shed really did well in comparison to previous years. l loved how it looked right next to the the Viburnum on the left.
Another beautiful peony. The closeup of one of its bloom is shown beneath this photo.
I always love it when my poppies bloom, I only wish they lasted a bit longer in the garden. They only bloom for two or three days and they are done! I love the orange blooms against the pink Marguerite Daisies.

A close up of the Goatsbeard bloom. I couldn't believe how covered in bees this plant was.
I was "blessed" with these two white metal poles cemented in the ground when I bought the property. I turned one into a spot to hang baskets, but I haven't done anything with the second one yet. I should probably have my husband attach a cute bird house to it.

Pretty daisies growing by the pond.

Another view of the upper pond garden. Bachelors Buttons, purple and yellow iris, daisies, and white geranium are all in bloom at once.

This garden was renovated two years ago and is just now starting to fill in nicely.
There is a lot of purple iris in this garden because this plant also grows fairly well in the shade, and it's primarily a shade garden.
And another view of the lilac and viburnum bushes in bloom by the shed.
I look at these pictures and they make me kinda sad because now my garden is in that "lull period". All the spring flowers are done blooming, and we are awaiting the summer flowers to bloom, so it's just mostly green. But when it does happen, it will explode with hot, vibrant colors! I can't wait!
Have A Great Day! Amy
