Summer is bustin' out all over.

Everything finally seems to blooming and growing and flourishing here in New England.

I took my camera out, walked around the yard and snapped a few photos.

Clematis.

Our yard 2009-1

There are hundred upon hundreds of blooms on this plant.

Every year it gets bigger and bigger. I love it.

This is my mandevilla. It's slowly climbing up this trellis.

Here's one perfect bloom from the mandevilla.

My little succulent garden.

Our yard 2009-4

I love buying nasturtiums before they bloom so it's always a surprise as to what color it's going to be.

This year it's red.

Lambs Ear.

Our yard 2009-6

If you've never felt a lambs ear (the plant not a real lambs ear) you just can't imagine how incredibly soft this plant is.

Even though I love the bursts of color in the yard, I love plants that stay green all season long too.

Ferns are some of my favorites.

Mosses too.

Oh and I can't forget the silver mound.

This is the view down my driveway.
I like things kinda free flowing and wild.

Coleus have always been a favorite of mine.
I love all the different colors that they come. in.

Here's a couple of mushrooms hiding out in the lavender.

This little white chair sits in one of my favorite corners of the yard, nestled among the tiger lilies.

We love decorating the yard for the 4th of July.
We have flags all over.

Little bursts of color creeping between some rocks.

There's a few stone critters hanging out too.

Here is my most favorite flower of all.

My hydragena that John bought for me 3 years ago on Mothers Day. The plant was in bad shape and I thought for sure that it wouldn't make it till the next year, but much to my surprise, it grew and flourished and is now a huge plant filled with dozens upon dozens of beautiful blue blooms.

I adore this plant.

I picked up another one this spring and it's getting ready to produce a bloom. Looks like it's going to be a pink one (yes I know it's the acidity of the soil that changes the color). I'll snap a pic of that when it's ready.
