Grace Gardens is...

This blog's purpose is for me to keep a garden journal of sorts. To detail some of the things that I accomplish in the garden and a little of what I do in my home as well. It will also be a place where I will post the photos that I love to take so much. Maybe a place to post my overflowing of pictures that I particularly like or find artistic. Some posts will be wordy...and some may have no conversation at all. Just a post to bring back to mind a lovely day or a meaningful memory. I have disabled the comments on this blog, but feel free to e-mail me for any questions about what you see here. My e-mail address can be found in my profile.

This was July in the garden...

Some of the things that were blooming in July in Grace Gardens.

beebalm, echinacea, and Annabelle Hydrangea 

Eleanor daylily and scabiosa

a pretty clematis whose name escapes me right now

 a few photos of one of the Adelaide Hoodless rose bushes

a little garden statue and Champlaine rose

Henryii Clematis in Ivory Silk japenese lilac

light pink lily and daylilies

Now that July is over and August is here the summer really does seem like it is winding 
down in the mountains here, but there are still many, many more things
that will bloom all the way through October. 
August is one of my favorite times in the garden and I will be back to share more.
Happy August!!!
