Tomorrow, I'll have more art to show, but for today I had this little surprise when I downloaded some pictures earlier. I found these images of giant oaks at Wormsloe Plantation, grand houses on the Isle of Hope and Spanish moss from when my friend visited. Every time I see the grandeur of these trees I am awed. And the Spanish moss hanging from the branches lets you know that you are in the South!
And here a few finds from our own, modest garden - it has LOVED the two weeks of record rainfall. There are little mushrooms coming up everywhere and Daniel found this group of tiny ones in our vegetable patch. Aren't they just perfect?
A little sunflower planted by the birds.
Pink yarrow and yellow lantana - we planted them last year and they looked pitiful after the hot summer, but this year, they are strong and beautiful!
Our gorgeous and very prolific hydrangeas.
Fun balloon flowers popping up everywhere.
And the first creeping gardenia blossoms - the most wonderful smelling ground cover!
Unfortunately, our two big gardenia bushes bloomed during the last two rainy weeks, so we cut the last few perfect blossoms to enjoy in the house. The scent is heavenly...
Tomorrow, I will have more art to show you...
