This morning I walked around my yard and snapped a bunch of pictures for bloom day. Then I decided I didn’t really care all that much about the pictures I took. So this afternoon, Judy and I headed over to our friend Eve’s place so we could take pictures of her garden. As you can see, Eve and her husband Dave live out in the country, and I’m ever so slightly envious of their lovely spot. However, I’m not at all envious of the amount of work that goes into keeping up the gardens.
We started out in the rock garden, traveled around the pond to the prairie, and ended up back by the house and the shade garden. I took over a hundred photos and have spent a good hour whittling them down to twenty or so.
Judy actually wrote down the names of many of the flowers as we went, but lazy blogger that I am, I’m going to forgo labeling any of them, since I don’t necessarily remember which flower name matches which photo. However, if you do have questions about any of the blooms, please feel free to ask in the comments, and I will do my best to provide the correct answer.
