You grow such a wide variety of flowers, and they all look so happy in the summer. Very beautiful.

I love summer geraniums!

Beautiful blooms, all of them. I'm always so thrilled to see the first chicory -- they're in abundant bloom along the roadsides here in Nova Scotia and have always been my favourite wildflower. Your garden is lovely.

Goodmorning Ewa,
You have quite an array of flowers about. Judging by the height of the water in your pond, you must have had enough rain. That Hosta flower caught my eye. Blue leaves?
Chicory is my favourite midsummer wildflower. Wish it would like to grow in my garden. I found it with White flowers last year. And you have pelargoniums as well as geraniums.
Thanks for the show.

Wow - lush, colorful, profusion - and that green - Not like our Mediterranean climate here. Like a breath of cool fragrance - thanks!

Ewa said...

Jo, hosta that caught your eye has bluish biiig leaves that have the tendency to keep silver water drops :) beautiful :)

Beautiful July blooms Ewa! Your pond is absolutely gorgeous. I love chicory. I would be thrilled to grow it in our garden.

Tracy said...

Beautiful flowers! Love the pond too - looks so refreshing. Your hydrangeas look great - I love them, but they don't love my yard. I have a few and they never do well.

Lovely showing of blooms. I love the shot of the honeysuckle - it looked like a big ole crinum at first glance.

Gorgeous photos, Ewa! (And I wish that chicory would self-sow in my yard. I think it's the one "weed" that doesn't ever make an appearance here, boo.) I especially like your waterlily, and your "unnamed" red lily.

Sylvana said...

Your pond just brings everything together making it a true garden. So many blooming plants, and so many beautiful blooms! Love it all.
