Six On Saturday in the Garden: My Own!

Good Mornin SOSer’s! This morning I am on a quick walk through in my garden……..just showing what’s blooming right now! It has been hot and hotter here!

First, a ground level view of the lavender……….

Silver Anouk Lavender

Then drifting in the breeze surrounding the entire cottage is the fragrance of the Confederate Jasmine…….the trellis is covered in thick, thick blossoms! I wish I had scratch and smell for you!

Walking to the Woodland Garden, the Oak Leaf Hydrangea are in full bloom!

This plant has bloomed profusely this year……I don’t remember it from last year…..looking through my plants book……it kinda, but not quite, looks like a Purple Glaze Illicium. I do have one in my garden ( I have the tag) but not one plant that looks like the tag photo! But, this plant looks similar to the photo, but much taller and bigger and with beautiful pink, wispy flowers! Of course, it is the plant that everyone is asking me about when they come to the garden!

Illicuim of Some Kind

But, my isn’t it beautiful! A keeper for sure, whatever it is!

    Just lovely, Cady! I’m taken with the Jasmine and especially the Illicium. I’ll have to go check if the variety Of Some Kind might frow in wet Irish conditions!

    That jasmine is stunning in form, though I might find the scent a little overpowering. My hydrangea are gazing in awe- how did you get that big??? 🙂 🙂 Lovely! Have a great weekend, Cady!

  4. Wow Cady, everything is just so beautiful in your garden. The detail in the small little flowers of the Oak leaf Hydrangea is also special 🌸. Thanks, I’ve enjoyed walking with you through your garden.

  7. Your garden looks beautiful. Wishing I’d gone for the creamy yellow jasmine now instead of a white one!

    Such a pretty garden. Mine is undergoing a massive change today. It will be awhile before I can call it pretty.


  10. What a joy to take another walk through a bit of your garden. I love the scent of jasmine, so I could wish for a scent feature as well. 😉
