Come walk down these beautiful sandstone stepping stones with lovely roses planted on either side.
The Day Lilies are at their spectacular best in all colors. These white ones stood out among the lovely chartreuse green.
This lush vegetable garden is on a hillside with rows of basil, tomatoes, peas and grapes. This gardener even has a trough of special food for the deer so they will be content before they enter her yard.
At another yard, looking down about 15', these hosta leaves are at least 15" across. I have never seen such large beautiful, large leaves!
The lavendar is growing very well in our next garden and gives off a lovely scent as we walk by.
Of course we must check out the container gardens too like this one with its geraniums and (oh, what is the name of this purple flower?--can't remember)
I was trying to get close to this coneflower but I got a little too close. At any rate they are lovely in their beautiful pink dresses.
Can you make out this basket of boxwood with ivy handle holding pink roses inside it. It is about 6' long.
There are two seating areas here among the rocks and shade of the large oak tree. A great place to take a rest and have a view of the rest of the yard which is lovely.
Water is a nice feature in any yard and the trickle heard from this fountain is refreshing as we walk by.
I hope you take advantage of any garden tours in your area. It is a delightful way to spend a summer morning. After I got home I headed right for the nearest garden center as I was inspired to add to my own garden. To view more Outdoor Wednesday click here.
