We had a break in the rain this morning, so I thought I would venture outside. I love how everything looks so verdant and bright after the rains stopped! I was inspired to take some pictures of the yard and garden – the rain will be back soon, so this was my big chance.
Gardenia – I love their smell! They were my grandmother’s favorite.
Hydrangea are my favorites. I love the bursts of color.
Mmmm…fresh basil. Perfect torn up in a watermelon salad – add feta and a drizzle of olive oil for the perfect summer treat.
Tomatoes are coming…just not yet. Marigolds fend off bugs.
Carolina jasmine – smells heavenly when blooming!
Daylilies might be my second favorite, behind hydrangeas. I love the colors.
Now that we’re in the 1929 house, I miss my garden from our old house. I’m working on making the yard and garden here just as beautiful. Stay tuned!
