Garden Hydrangea Echinacea Daisy Views

The gardens are growing and doing well with all the rain we've had. So far I've only needed to water a few times thankfully. Of course usually I don't  need to water until on into July, but with the heat spells we've had between the rain, I had to since the plants were so tender yet. Here's some of the long views of my gardens.


The left side of my yard.


The beginning of this side of the gardens.


The Echinacea and Daisy garden really opening up now. That yellow flower towards the left is my new Coreopsis Sunray blooming already. Just had to have it with that name.


One of my Hydrangea Quickfire has buds opening now. Happy gardening to all of you.

Your beds are so pretty girl! The lilies are blooming so well. I love daisies and echinacea together too and have them tucked into a few beds here. They will put up with Ohio weather. LOL! Too bad I do not live anywhere near Dayton or I would be coming over to bum a ninebark start from you. LOL! Your safe because I have only been there a couple of times. LOL! Once to the VA Hospital and to Patterson.If there is ever any seeds you might want from my plantings just let me know.

Your garden looks beautiful. Your Shasta daisies are doing wonderfully. I have echinecea and black eyed susans on my list for planting. I love how they look with daisies and coreopsis blooming.

Hi Char
Thanks for your visit to my garden and I'm enjoying yours. Can I make a suggestion? The echinacea, coreopsis and daisy garden are flowers that butterflies like, why not call it your butterfly garden?
Purple coneflower is one flower my butterfly garden will never be without, that and butterfly bush.
As things bloom there, I'll do a post on the host and nectar plants I have some time.

Hi Judith. Thanks for stopping by. Actually I do call it that when talking with people. It also has my Butterfly Weed. :) I am just listing what is in there, but I could do both.

Your garden is beautiful! That's nice that it gets some rain. With all the Californian heat, I have to water mine almost every day.
Have a lovely day!
