I'm certainly glad you were able to get out and catch the garden in all it's loveliness. Over the years you have created such a pretty and varried set of gardens.

Pom Pom said...

Beautiful! I love the lilies, don't you? I had a sad "batteries died" moment on my Sunday Stroll today. I'll join in next week!

Aisling said...

Mom, I snuck my stroll in between raindrops. Thank you... I have a lot of plans for my gardens, but can enjoy them "as is" too. :)

Pom Pom, I love lilies so much. I still think I need a few more. *grin* Sorry about your batteries. I've been having camera issues myself and had to borrow my husband's today! Thank you for visiting my stroll!

Farmer's Daughter said...

I love those black eyed susans. I planted some seeds this year but they never came up. Oh well, maybe next year!

Aisling said...

Abbie, They grow wild here and I always just leave them where they land in the garden (as long as I recognize the leaves as they emerge.) Hopefully you will get some to come up from seed! They are so pretty!

The Mom said...

How gorgeous! I love all the varieties of flowers you have.

Aisling said...

Heather, Why thank you! It's taken years, but I do have a nice variety. There is, of course, always something new that it would be nice to have, but I'm very laid back about "acquisition" and I allow volunteers to bloom here too, which helps (in this post, the queen anne's lace and black eyed susans planted themselves.) :)

Wow, fabulous photos, wonderful garden!

Everydaywoman said...

Aisling~What an appropriate heading in "watercolors!" The colors are BEAUTIFUL and we've certainly had our share of water lately!

Aisling said...

Mibsy, Thank you! Your friendly comment really warmed my heart this morning!

Ruth,
Thanks! Everything was dripping as I stepped outside, but the color was still beautiful. This week looks less rainy, but still a little rain is forecast. I'd love a day or two of beautiful sunshine before more rain. :)

Margaret Evans Porter said...

Lovely stroll, beautiful lilies, everything so lush and green. It's almost impossible to photograph Queen Anne's lace without some little bug on the flower!

Green Mamma said...

Beautiful photos. I especially enjoyed the "bug" photograph at the beginning. Also, the land around your home seems so quiet and peaceful; I'd love to stroll there, :-)

Once Annabelle and I complete our 30 days, I hope to return to Sunday Stroll. For now, I'll just have to enjoy what all your other gardening ladies (and gents too) are up to.

Aisling said...

Margaret, You're right! Something always seems to be creeping along the Queen Anne's Lace. I thought this little worker was quite elegant!

Jessica, It is pretty peaceful here... very removed from the hustle and bustle in town... though an occcassional dirt bike screams down the road! :)

Thank you both for the nice comments on my photos.

Our Red House said...

Your photos are always so lovely. I love how even the water guns fitted your colour scheme.

Kate

Aisling said...

Kate, Thank you! Yes, isn't that funny about the squirt guns... they fit right in!

Thank you for visiting!
