Those lupine are absolutely beautiful. I've only seen blue lupine. I love the pink. My hydrangeas are pink. Pink hydrangeas and blue lupine. Totally opposite of yours. hmmmm


Ohhh, I so wish I had a Garden like yours!...
You seem to know quite a lot about gardning...
And the RESULTS are sooo beautiful!
Keep up with the good work!

Ooooohhhh--so much loveliness! Those pink lupines are fabulous. Such great ideas you have for your garden. Half the fun is dreaming things up. The house where I grew up my father had planted two snowball bushes--they were so beautiful. The flower head make fun cut flowers. We have a blue hydrangea. It's very spindly because the firt year we moved in I clipped in back in the fall, not knowing they do not like to be pruned. It's starting to come around again, so maybe I didn't kill it after all--LOL! LOVE that squirrel birdbath! Happy Days! :o)


LOL -- I shouldn't laugh at your trials with the deer, but you write about it so well I can't help it. Thanks for the pick-me up, and good luck with your quest to protect those lovely ladies. ***shhh - be vewwy, vewwy quiet -- I think I hear the deer!***

I am feeling ever so much better after having a trip through your garden! I have been doing vast quantities of Vitamin C and B12 and think I am on the mend- in fact in another day I may be myself again(!) Hahahha! Oh, yes! Anyway- the apron is on her way to you and I can't wait for you to get it- I am so sorry it took me so long- I will take some more pictures of your lovely quilt and they will be at Flickr and my Blog- first I need to finish some chores- everything just goes to hellinahandbasket around here when I am sick. I am using that as a theme for my next art apron I think...can't ya see the flames around the hem...(teehee) yes, I am feeling better...


I love lupines. That birdbath is too cute! Yes, protect the poor little flowers (and the butterflies) from those critters.

We have purple lupin in California, and I treasure it. A sure sign of Spring when ever it crops up. I have never seen pink lupin before!


I love lupine, but unforturnately, the dratted snails love it too! I have to work really hard to have it in my garden. Your's is beautiful!
That's one of the prettiest bird/squirrel baths I've ever seen!


I love snowball trees (yes i call them trees!) I dont know of you've seen em before there white or not, but the are the most beautiful shade of pale green, i love them!

You've got such a beautiful garden!

And the photographs just keep getting better :D

Must be wonderful (aside from all the hard work!) to live in a place like that.

All your lovely photos... I feel like I'm visiting Buechart Garden's from the comfort of my monitor!

What a BEAUTIFUL garden!!!


Your garden is so absolutely gorgeous! I've been enjoying all of the pictures. I had to comment on the lupine pictures though. They are so stunning! A favorite flower of mine and in pink! Perfect! :)

I have the same birdbath! But with the original bowl. You guys must have married two birdbaths together. I love the squirrels climbing up mine and what great idea to put the statues up top!
