One plant in the late Summer garden that I can't have enough of is
the oriental lily.
I have many different varieties and am always looking for more.
They can be costly however, so I have to keep myself reined in a bit.
These are the Stargazers.
My favorite is the Casa Blanca.
It is my favorite not only because of it's pure white bloom, but
also for it's fragrance.
These are planted along the walk and the scent follows you all the way to the front door.
Now is the time when the garden phlox bloom.
They have actually been blooming for about two weeks,
but I am just now getting around to posting the pictures.
I can't think of the name of this particular phlox, but I love the color.
This phlox is 'Bright Eyes'.
More of the phlox in the garden beds this season.
My mother gave me the rose below and it is one of my favorites.
It's name is 'Moxie'
The shrub below is 'Ivory Halo' dogwood.
It has a variegated leaf and is the right size to place in a mixed border.
The sweet peas are still keeping the garden full of their wonderful sweet scent.
A gorgeous late blooming daylily.
Amazing color and scent!
Because the garden will not be blooming forever, I am soaking all this beauty
in and enjoying every bloom.
Still, everyday I feel so grateful to have all of this out my door
and never ever take it for granted.
Gardening is such a joy!
