A Bevy of Blooms for Outdoor Wednesday

The abundance of rain this summer has turned our gardens into jungles. Wonderful for the plants but the weeding is getting away from us.
The coneflowers are smiling at the sky. Thanking the clouds.
The grasses are thriving.
These wild daylillies were transplanted here 16 years ago and are quite happy.
I always called these Tiger Lillies because of Peter Pan.
My pots haven't even wilted from lack of water and inattentive gardening.
Wild roses grow through my hibiscus.
I love Annabelle Hydrangeas. They just bloom like mad here. This is my oldest one. I am planning to divide it in the fall. I think I can create an entire hedge row from this one plant.
All these blooms will fill vases and containers and dry to a soft green by fall.
Whats going on outdoors at your house?

Have a wild Wednesday, P.
Pin It!

I just went to a daylily farm on Sunday. Oh my they have come a long way from the lovely orange ones you and I have.
I wish my hydrangeas would have enough blooms on them to cut some for inside. Sigh.
Keep watering it looks lovely.

Your garden is amazing! Those hydrandeas are breathtaking. I love that color and have not seen it until I started blogging. I can't see the weeds... all I see is a lovely yard!

Happy Outdoor Wednesday...

I am jonesing really bad over the hydrangeas. I just don't have any luck with them. I have planted the "Endless Summer" varieties, but they don't dry worth a hoot! Yours are breathtaking, Pam!!!
