summer lovin'

a few pictures from our yard. . .

this lily looking thing is actually a hosta. we've never seen them bloom this way. they must like LOTS of water cause that's what they got this year and they are lovely.

and this we lovingly call "grandma's plant". neither of us know what it's really called but ken's grandmother gave a cutting from her garden a few years ago. we took it with us in a bucket when we moved at the beginning of spring. we transplanted it here in the indiana sunshine and it has just flourished! If anyone knows anything about this plant (I have pictures of the foliage too) please leave a comment as we want to know if we can split it up.

there's nothing nicer than having plants growing in your garden that friends or loved ones have shared. ken's grandmother has been gone for two years now but somehow, it's as though a bit of her lives on in our garden.

What a lovely thought. It is indeed like you have a piece of Ken's grandma with you always. g

Beautiful plants Miss Melly. I wish you'd send some rain our way -- we're dry as a bone up here!

shared plants from loved ones are THE BEST! Matbe we should do that next spring - right now we have too much going on to be playing in the yard, but I'd love to share in the spring. What do ya think?
love, Robin

My Grandma's clematis is started blooming last week. It smells heavenly. Although I don't have an official confirmaion on what heaven "smells" like. I hope it smells a lot like this.
