A Garden Party

Kimba at A Soft Place to Land is having a Garden Party. I thought I would participate since we have been working so hard in the yard for the reception.

Here is the shaded part of the yard. It is more in my hubby's machine shed, cattle hauling area. We will be parking the cars in this area. Each year I add a few more hostas with the future plans to be a spot full of hostas of all shades and sizes.



Front of your home, might be using some of the yellow day lilies in the reception flowers.



View from my back door.






the flowers are starting to bloom. I really want the garden phlox to bloom. I keep telling it each time I pass, "bloom, phlox, bloom!" I don't think it is listening. This is the flower we were planning to use quite a bit in all the arrangements, it is so pretty and has a beautiful scent.


Another view - had to brighten it quite a bit.




Hollyhocks and bee balm, then that uncooperative phlox on the right.




View of the backyard, the tent will be to the right of the arbor.

  12. Absolutely beautiful. I see now where your blog got its name. It takes a lot of work to create and maintain a yard like that. Best wishes for a beautiful day for the wedding.l

    Everything is just gorgeous! Where I'm at, NY, things are just really starting to bloom and be filled in like yours.

    What I really want to know is, what is that purple bloomer in the photo as a view from your back door?
