I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

Backyard Posies

Linking Up Today with Fertilzer Friday
Be sure and check out all the other great gardeners and walk through their gardens
I love this time of year!  All the flowers are in full radiant bloom. Here are a few pictures of our backyard cutting garden. This is from the porch looking east.

This is from the yard looking more from the front of the garden.  I want to grab the flowers in my hands and just smell them!
This is down at the far end
Here are close up's of some of the flowers

This is a close up of the daisy's with one of my favorite helpers:
Here is the only picture I can find of the whole back yard. The cutting garden is to your left.  It was a swimming day last week.
The word of the past few weeks has been HOT like most of you!  Our forecast is saying we are supposed to cool down into the 80's next week -- we are very ready! 
I am an Idaho Girl - extended 90's are not the norm here! 

Today I am grateful for all these amazing flowers blooming in my very own yard!  Thanks for stopping by!

My goodness you have so many gorgeous blooms there. Your phlox is gorgeous as mine is just starting to bloom a little...i hear you about extended days or weeks of 90 degree weather...we are not used to it either.
