Garden Peeping ~ Daylily, Hydrangea




Hi~ I snapped a few neighborhood garden pictures this past week. Not the same as Mo and my long rambles but it was nice to go out and see that July is bursting with color and happiness.
Aren't hydrangeas just the best! Look at the blues...








and pinks...






July is daylily season.










My friends who have the tropical garden...before the tropical bulbs kick in, they have giant sunflowers and gorgeous lilies.












Mo often visits.












MY seeds are growing...slowly but my basil is still only 1/2" tall!?



The Weather Bug keeps talking about the ''heat wave here in the Northeast" but the weather here at the beach has been almost uniformly sunny, dry, breezy , and low to mid 70s.






Perfect for my afternoons on the deck.





[update, since you all were nice enough to ask is: Doctors have no clue what is wrong w/ me. "Possibly autoimmune arthritis?" More Rx, painkillers, etc; more tests this week.]

love

lizzy

gone to the beach...................

  2. The expression on Mo's face with the little girl is priceless! I wonder what secrets she's telling him! Hope you're feeling better soon!

  3. It's unanimous, I love the picture with the little girl, too. And all the others, such pretty flowers. I'm glad to see you got out for a bit. Also wish you could send us your weather! It's been really hot here, and now it's raining - maybe all week. Ugh. Although the rain has cooled it off a lot.

    Hang in there, I hope the docs find something that will help you soon!

  4. YES! Hydrangeas are the best! Daylilies used to grow across the street from my childhood home. I was just this week trying to remember their name--thank you.
    The tropical garden seems to be doing just fine. I remember when they were just getting started and you thought it may not work out.

    Yeah, Mo and his little friend...precious.

    For all of the advances the medical field makes, I'm always shocked when they are stumped. Hoping for relief for you soon. Maybe the arthritis guess is at least a start.

    Keep your chin up Lizzy, you're made of strong stuff :)

    1. Daylilies grew in the ditches along the roads where I lived in IL as a child. A wonderful native plant!

      thanks for encouragement, today was a smidge better.

      btw in all my years of chronic illness I don t think Ive ever had a doctor actually know what the problem was. Not even for a cold or when Ihad a tick on my arm,lol. They are so mired in tests and so uncertain.It s a guessing game w/ a lot of CYA at best. [I am not a fan.]..

  5. Sorry the doctors still have no answers ... then again, most of those I've known tend to write essay answers for true/false questions.

    I love that the flowers have such specific seasons ... vinca and lantana seem to be in bloom year round, so I don't know much about how that all works.

    Mo looks to be the ultimate secret keeper! I hope he is able to hold the post for many years to come!
