  1. Love the lilies and geraniums together! What a great way to tuck in some annuals and provide a stunning contrast of color. The petunias and lupine combo are beautiful as well.

  2. Everything looks so neat, and perfectly well behaved. Much better then the tree I bet.

    Thanks so much for dropping by, and leaving such a nice comment. And thanks for the fave.


  3. How beautiful your garden looks, today. I especially like the overview of your back gardens and would love to stroll around them. Your David Austins are gorgeous! I just planted my first, a Lichfield Angel, and I hope it does as well as yours. Thank you for the tour. Pam

  4. I haven’t seen the White Dome hydrangea before. I really like it and the tiny lilies. You have some great foliage combos too with the hostas and heucheras.
