Summer Blooms on Lilac Hill

Rose ‘Chicago Peace’

Even though the Lilacs have finished blooming many other plants are bursting with colour! The garden is new with many of the plants brought from my two previous properties. There will eventually be new raised beds built as the ground is very rocky.

The garden has its challenges, deer will try anything so my hostas are on the front porch and I will coat plants in egg and blood meal.

The daisies do well, this one is a shaggy shasta and the other one is ‘Sunnyside Up’

Bees are hard at work on the heleniums and nasturtiums

I have two areas I can grow plants in pots, the sundeck off the kitchen and the covered front porch where I do like to sit with a cup of tea from time to time!
