My Garden

Summer’s Melody

“In summer, the song sings itself.” -William Carlos Williams

My garden has not performed like I have expected this year but when I look back over the beautiful blooms,  I think WOW.  I’ve had some amazing blooms and my garden is so much a part of my life.  I am so happy to be joining Pam at Gardens Galore with a sampling from my garden.



These are the roses I planted this year to climb my Cinderella arbor.  I was not disappointed when I saw the first full bloom.


One of my peonies that bloomed months ago that I transplanted from Mother’s.


I have had this piece of statuary for as long as I can remember. It gives character to my garden.


One of my early blooming pink hydrangeas.


I have five or six of these yellow day lilies planted throughout my garden.  Adds lots of color to my garden.



This was Mother’s little bird feeder.  I love it in the tall grass.





We enjoy the birds and we attract quite a variety.  Two of these feeders in my garden.





We really enjoy this patio which is part of the garden area.  This is an old glider Mother left for me.




This was one of my great surprises when this indigo bunting showed up.


I have enjoyed giving you this little tour and I will enjoy seeing many of your gardens today.

  1. Dianne, your garden is lovely. Your roses are gorgeous and the pink peony is a beauty. Your pieces of statuary are so pretty and they add such charm to a garden. I have the exact feeder like your mom’s. We also enjoy the birds and what a treat to have an Indigo Bunting visit. We will see them in the countryside, upon occasion, here in West Virginia. I think they are glorious. Your patio area is so inviting, I could spend hours with a wonderful book in that spot. I so enjoyed my visit, thank you for sharing the beauty you have created.

    1. Sandra, thank you for your visit and your very kind words. The Indigo Bunting was a thrill. Can you imagine my surprise when I returned with my camera and he was posing!

  2. Dianne, I want to sit down with you on your beautiful cherished glider from your mother! We could talk for a long time I am sure.
    What a DELIGHT to have an indigo bunting visit. I would be “over the moon” if one came to my garden. Birds are so delightful but hard to photograph!
    All your flowers are lovely but I must say the rose on your arbor pulled at my heart strings!
    Your post was a blessing this morning.

  3. Bonnie, I would love the opportunity to sit in either of our gardens and talk for hours. My garden is fading but my sedum is coming along nicely. God has provided us a beautiful world.

  4. Bonnie – I enjoyed my time in your gardens. I especially love the little sitting area you’ve created and would love one just like it in my own garden.

    1. Joanna, thank you for visiting my garden. The glider has given me hours of joy. Going by to visit your posts. Dianne

  5. Dianne, may I join you on the cherished glider and talk gardening? Your roses are beautiful, I am not good with roses at all! I love your statuary pieces, they do add so much character to a garden. The indigo bunting is a great visitor to the garden. We could spend the day talking sweet friend. Thanks for sharing at Gardens Galore!

    1. Thank you for doing this garden party and inviting all of us to participate. Your friendship means so much to me. Yes, we have a lot to talk about!
