She's back!

I certainly have missed blogging!  All I can say is that sometimes life gets in the way, and some things need to be put on the back burner for a while.  Also, in all honesty, living on a one-acre property and loving gardening as much as I do, it becomes a full-time job tending to my gardens this time of year.  Having a creative mind doesn't help either, as I'm always thinking of new things to incorporate into my gardens.  I've been told that I should focus on one project at a time, but I find that nearly impossible as I am an expert in multi-tasking!!  I've also been told that I should check if there are any support groups out there for Obsessive Gardeners Anonymous :) 

Anyhoo....as I get back into the swing of blogging, I'd like to share some recent photos of my garden blooms (most were taken in mid May).  Until next time.......Happy Gardening!!!

Clematis hybrid 'H F Young'

Tickseed (Coreopsis Grandiflora)

Heuchera and blue fescue grass in foreground

Cornflowers and Coral Bells
(at least I think they are cornflowers -
they mysteriously appeared in my garden
a few years back and are a welcome addition to my garden)

One of my very favorite shrubs, Birch Leaf Spirea

Hosta garden .....

Mollie, my loyal helper
(and expert crusher of newly planted hostas and impatiens)!

and finally, my latest pride and joy.....
...my new potting bench at work!
