July flew by and I guess I have spent the whole month in the garden and at the cabin.  I did work on some fun stitching projects for Ella and Taylor’s rooms that should be ready to share with you next time.

I have little to show you from my sewing room, but did take snapshots of my yard last week. July is the peak for most of the plants in my garden. Some early blooming plants are lingering and the late summer blooms have arrived. Take a few minutes and “stroll” through my garden with me.

    I have the Tree Farm Throw pattern, and would like to tell friends where they can purchase one. Any suggestions??? Thank you.

      That pattern has long been sold out and out of print. You will have to share your pattern with your friends. Thanks for checking.

    Such a lovely garden! Thank you for sharing. All the different colors of the flowers are like a scrappy patchwork quilt.

      I try to use plants that have a good history of surviving in our climate and it certainly helps to have a lot of natural moisture…and then there is paying a lot of attention to it I guess. It is definitely a labor of love.

    Breathtaking, amazing, awe inspiring. A comforting display of robust plants and flower bed designs. I saw the Penstimon reaching upwards in one of the photos, it’s one of my favorite perennials.
    The fragrance has to be intoxicating.
    Thank you for sharing your garden of Eden with all of us.

    What a wonderful tour! I love your color palette – it makes me feel so lucky that you share your lovely garden. I felt cooler just looking at all the green! We are HOT in Sacramento – 106 and cooking. The hills have all turned golden brown and fire season is in full swing. To look at all your greenery just makes my day!

      Not only do we get a nice amount of rain all summer, our nights are pleasantly cooler so everything gets a little rest from the heat of the day….that definitely helps.

    What a beautiful, lovely, peaceful piece of paradise you have created! I would love to sit in a chair or lie in a hammock with a good book surrounded by the splendor you have created.
    Personally, I confess, I have a black thumb. I don’t know how or why plants come to my home to die. Perhaps the wrong balance of wet or dryness.
    I’m having the surprise of a lifetime watching a sweet potato grow in a glass of water in my windowless kitchen. All I’m doing is keeping the glass full & it’s now sprouting several branches! I feel like a proud Mama.
    Nothing compared to your splendor, however for once a plant is flourishing in my home!

      It is a great feeling when a plant responds, no matter how small.

    Nice photos, Lynette. Lovely garden, a little paradise in the middle of town.

      Thanks Linda….after the 4 bouts with hail early this spring, most things have recovered (except for the hosta) which I did not photograph. Things always start to go down hill in August unless I cut things back around July 4th and then they have a chance to bounce back. This year I hit most things at the right time.
      It is always a challenge, however.
