Picture Pulling DAZE

OK .. I pulled a little too much colour to brighten my sunrise up .. now its shows my overly tweaking Ms. Hyde coming out .. she is a SCARY picture priss ..
I learned a new photo phrase today "bokeh" (thank you Jen !) now you guys have to look it up too .. wikipedia is wonderful .. who the heck invented that by the way ??
I haven't been awake in the garden for a while .. I have to kick myself SOON ...
Little Lamb is wagging her tail ....
My "pampered" Sumac is glistening with berry horns ...
The lilies are blooming .. poor things .. that horrible beetle from H*** has been vacationing here.

Casa Blanca and Stargazer struggling through the torture the beetles have been doing to them but bravely blooming their best for me .. guilt guilt .. next year I shall be ready to fight !!

Simple combos on the deck makes life a bit easier ....
Amazing new annual .. I have the tag some where ..... really I do !!
Snow ?
You have to love that euphorbia .. Diamond Frost ? .. I had no idea it could be this gorgeous on its own ...


OK .................... I'm ready for bed now .......... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz !!

I love the lily. I planted 15 after Easter and I have three that look like they may bloom again. They are about 10 inches tall and really leafed out. No buds yet, if the dogs dont knock them over, I may have more blooms to come. That little lamb is precious too, I love hydrangeas.... Brooke

Joy, I would love to stroll around your garden, looking at all those beautiful flowers and the very handsome Sumac! And the funny little man in his tree is so sweet...

Hello there Brooke !
I almost cut back my lilies because the damage from that horrible beetle was getting to me .. but in the end I didn't have the heart since they struggled so hard to bloom ..
Wow ! 15 ! I bet they will rebloom and look fantastic : )
Tell the dogs to behave or I'll send my girls over ? haha

Thank you Grace : ) .. I have way too many and it is hard to choose .. numbs the mind ?? LOL

Katarina girl : ) thank you ! Things are slowly moving towards an Autumn garden .. we had great rainfall last night (some wicked storms in the area .. kind of scary) but the garden LOVED the "drink" !! ;-)

Lovely blooms and combos! Hey Joy, I like your snail so much, I'd trade all my slugs for this one!

You just cannot beat that 'Diamond Frost' euphorbia! I bought two tiny plants at a plant sale and they have shined when I thought they'd die. Wowser! I'll be growing it each year from now on. Hope your nap was good.

My lilies are starting to bloom as well and the scent is wonderful. Many other plants in my garden just look worn out after an unusually hot July.

Thanks Tatayana ! I have a period of grace from those rotten beetles .. and I do love my cast iron snal .. wish I could find a buddy for him too ? ;-)

Tina I have to say it has been amazing seeing how beautiful this plant is .. I love having it on its own in a terra cotta planter .. it looks cool and refreshing no matter the temps ? LOL

Hey there Randy ! Thank you : ) .. glad to give you a quick tour for what is going on here ? ;-)
I have to get over to your place and see what you guys are up to !

Hi VW : ) .. the lilies do tend to freshen up the summer garden don't they .. and YES ! that scent is wonderful : )
