Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Summer Reruns - 6

This is the last of the summer reruns. By now I am back from three trips: Buffalo to visit daughter and family in their new environs, Oneida Lake vacation with both daughters and families, and a mission trip with church to Lumberton, NC.  Watch for new posts on these trips in the weeks ahead.

From an early post in my blogging life, here is one from July 2010 about the perennial garden at our house.


... is shaped like a compass rose. Here is how each triangle looks at this point in the summer.










Lilies are closer each day to blooming.


I started with three of these geraniums but am down to one.


Phlox is blooming well.

Newest day lily bloom, but not many scapes there for future blooms.


Purple cone flower.

Now the following photos may have appeared in blog but I can't find that one.  I wanted to show what the perennial garden looked like before we sold our house.  These photos date to 2014 or 2015.  I can't recall when I added the stone in the pathways.
