Green and just plain beauty

The Green and Blue Mosaic

Summer is here and flowers are at their peak.
Hot and need a lot of water which means, since no rain, much watering going on.  Well worth it however.

The Red Lily

When we moved into this house 13 years ago we started our landscaping with flowers that had a lot of meaning for us.

We planted 4 beautiful firey red Asian lilies in honor of our 4 daughters.
2 Jacob's ladders for our 2 sons.
Lilacs and iris bushes in honor of our mothers.
Different flowers for friends and other family members.
What is still thriving today: 
The lilac bush in honor of HH's mother.
Purple Iris from my mother's yard.
4 beautiful red lilies in honor of our daughters.

The Jacob's ladders did not weather the years so we put out several burning bushes in honor of our sons and wow they are hard to keep in control.

White Clematis

Pink Geranium

Hello Peggy
I like plants that are in the garden to remember someone by and my friendship bed has some given to me from friends. What a gorgeous red daylily.

That green mosaic looks wonderful. So beautiful! You are lucky to have blooms that do survive. My moss roses are the only things that bloom during the summer and I'm so happy to have them. wishing you a great week. Tammy

Those greens in your first mosaic are wonderfully cooling.

The new photo of you and your hubby strolling across the front lawn is so sweet. Love it!

My Jacob's Ladder fern croaked and I miss it terribly. Is that what didn't make it at your place?
