A bee loud glade...

My flowers are just busting to get out.  Literally, with this sunflower trapped in the greenhouse.

The garden is surrounded by wild flowers.  Among the daisies, you will see wild evening primrose and a Blackeyed Susan.  The sweetcorn is starting to tassel.  If you look way in the back you can see the bee hives by the orchard.

I also planted a bunch of flower seeds from last year.  It seems the cosmos and marigolds liked their new digs.  The bees especially like the cosmos.

 For years I've been trying to hide our well.  It is in the middle of the yard and was just sticking out like a sore thumb.  It is no longer an eyesore.  Can you even see it in there?
The rose bed is the best it has ever been.  It is a favorite spot for my one little hummingbird.

Last, but not least, my favorite visitor is back.  I was even able to get a photo.

The garden is abuzz with both bees and my little hummingbird.   Hope you enjoyed the tour.


  1. Bonnie,
    Your garden continues to show it's beauty! The well cover flowers look great!

  2. I did enjoy the tour. Your gardens are lovely.

  3. I don't dye my hummer nectar, just boil water and add the sugar. Getting a few regulars but they like my prairie back forty better this year. Lovely blooms around your yard.

  4. Just lovely. I think your place is just magnificent!

  5. Oh Bonnie, your garden is just fabulous! Those flowers are just what I needed to see this the sunflower trying literally to break out of the green house! And how lucky you are to have a hummingbird! I think you chose a great way to hide your well. Ours is just sticking out there, like a sore thumb.

  6. We had a hummingbird last year, but I haven't seen it this year :(

  7. Beautiful. . . just beautiful. Maybe I should buy some daisies. They look lovely in your yard. Most of the plants in my flower garden are perennials--and very few are blooming right now. I find it difficult to have flowers blooming at every point during the summer season.
