Summer garden

I just wanted to share some pictures of my summer garden, it's starting to get pretty warm in Texas but the plants are still happy for the most part. I wanted to capture everything while it was still happy and blooming, I'd like to thanks my wonderful photography assistant for taking some of these lovely shots. I love when seeds start growing and sprouting, things you have forgot about greet you as a happy surprise. I love that with each new season, there are particular varieties that shine in their surroundings. I definitely couldn't pick just one as a favorite. What plants and flowers do you enjoy the most?

two different kinds of hydrangeas

Ohh your garden is so colourful! I don't have a garden, but I love gardens with lots of flowers and plenty of space to lie on the grass :)

It is the middle of winter here so those flowers are really lovely to look at. :)

Floral Print Excitement

I'm not much of a girly girl but I am sucker for a floral print. Most of my favorite clothes have some kind of floral or abstract patter...
