Lilies, little helpers, and blooms.

My little helper can't even wait to get dressed in the morning before he is out to help me in the garden! He LOVES his Monkey jammies and helping mommy water! He is 19 mo's old now. He does a good job doesn't he?
 The lilies have been in full bloom lately and they are beautiful. They don't last long enough in my opinion! The Achillea looks very nice among the lilies.
 Lilies, dianthus, and moonbeam coreopsis. There are a couple of out of place orange lilies in there that might find a new bed for next year! I love a sea of red!
 With all the pretty colors around my deck, and my deck in the process of being redone, the kids and I are enjoying the back patio so much! It's a great place to just hang out and stick your feet in the kiddie pool!
 Lilies, hostas, and salvia.

Pumpkin Ball Squash

Clematis. Think I could use some more of this along the fence, it looks very nice and is easy to care for.
Bed number 8, Tomatoes, Lettuce, onions, carrots, it is getting full rather fast! The tomato plants look healthy and are blooming and in need of more support!
 I hope everyone is enjoying some blooms somewhere in their garden!


  1. Your lilies are just beautiful! I wish that they would last longer too!

    Boy, you are lucky to have such a good garden helper! It looks like he is doing a great job!

  2. Eli the Gardening Guy....someday he'll be famous!

    Love, love, love those red lilies. Yes, I do wish they would last longer. I take photos of mine every day, so I'll have memories of them long after the blossoms fade.

    The rest of your garden looks great!

  3. Your garden is gorgeous! I am officially jealous ;-)

  4. Thank you! It has taken a few years of trial and error, but I think I am finally getting something I REALLY like!
