My Maine Garden is in Full Bloom

My new sun dial in the front of the garden.

Spirea with hostas in a shady spot.

Japanese maple - grown from a seedling from Mom & Dad's tree, with orange daylilies and black eyed Susan's in the side yard.

Hydrangea 'Annabelle' with yellow evening primrose.
Hydrangea 'Endless Summer' - a great choice for northern gardens. I bought the plant last year, and this year it has about 20 flower clusters. These flowers were in Sarah's wedding bouquet last summer.

Hostas - the deer have not eaten them yet this year.

Goatsbeard - looks good by the edge of the woods.

Rose campion and geranium cranesbill - a new combination in my garden this year.

Red monarda, white hydrangea, yellow stella d' oro daylilies, with a hanging basket of purple petunias.

This beautiful white clematis is growing up a tree.

Yellow evening primrose, daisies, and cranesbill geranium. I love purple and yellow.

Orange daylilies and yellow loosestrife - such a happy combination.

Daylilies, black eyed Susan's, and daisies by the garage door.

Hosta, European Ginger, and Astilbe - a wonderful combination for shade.

We've had so much rain this summer. I haven't liked it, but the perennials have loved it!

So pretty. I like how the bright colors look against the dark woods. That's okay that you can't come to our apartment this time around. I'm sure you'll see it sometime. We should get together and work on our babette blankets sometime!
