I watched the Tour de France this weekend. But today, I am taking a tour de GARDEN :) Here is a little spin around parts of my garden.
I love Blue Herons and this large sculpture is by the front door. Framed here by the begonias.
This butterfly sculpture sits among the leaves of a huge grape vine. My dream is to line our driveway with grade vines and now that I am enjoying blueberries, perhaps a few blueberries.
First year planting asters. These are below the leaves of the grapevine.
A rosebush that has not been eaten yet by the deer this year. This one changes colors dramatically throughout a bloom's life.
This is a small wildflower garden that I planted last year. This year it just went even more wild. I am enjoying the changes in colors as one group of flowers fades and another emerges.
The kiwis are still pulling through. I'm hoping that we have a few fruit by the end of the season. Not bad for a rainy climate! The vine is super aggressive and the leaves are refreshingly shady.
A little bit of ruby red in the garden :)

Nice walk with DH and the dawgs. Good read at the coffee shop.
