Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here. Summer is near the end and so is the growing season for the flowers in our yard. We still have a few daylilies blooming.

Some of the hosta still have flowers too.

Another late bloomer in our yard is our non-vining clematis.

The various bees around our yard seem to be working overtime collecting pollen.

This little guy was so loaded down with pollen he could barely take off.

Now those are full saddle bags

Next I want to show you some dragonflies.

Lastly I want to show you one of the many leopard frogs we have in our yard.

There are so many of these frogs in the lawn that when I mow the lawn I have to go very slow around the edge of the grass (where they seem to be the most plentiful) to try not to squash or mow over them. We seem to be having a banner year for leopard frogs in our yard this year. It usually takes me about 2 hours to mow our lawn but since the frogs have appeared it’s taken me about 1/2 hour longer because I’ve had to go much slower. I want to get a bumper sticker for my tractor that says, “I Brake for Frogs”!

I hope you enjoyed this stroll around the garden today.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. The weather has been super hot here most of the summer so it was nice when the weather cooled off long enough for us to get outside to play and let our mom take some flower pictures.

We have lots of perennials and shrubs in bloom right now but we are only going to show you are daylilies today. Let’s get on with the show.

We hope you enjoyed checking out our daylilies that are blooming in our yard right now.

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Dory for her Flower Friday Blog Hop. We are playing catch up this week as we took the past couple of weeks off to be in the Pawlympics.

We showed you many of our daylilies already so here are the rest of them.

It seems that many of the flowers in bloom are yellow. Maybe it is just the color of the hot time of year.

We do have some flowers of other colors in bloom now too.

The final flower in the perennial garden in bloom now is the Joe Pye weed. It is so tall that it almost falls over from the weight of the flowers.

The rugosa rose is on its second bloom and the bumble bees and other bugs are enjoying the pollen.

The last flowers are on another hydrangea.

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Dory for Flower Friday.

FlowerFridayBadge2015

It’s been a long time since I did a Flower Friday post this year but it’s not for lack of flowers. So here are my excuses…the month of June was the wettest on record for our area so it was difficult to find a nice day to take pictures and the flowers faded fast because of the rain…then because of all the rain we were swarmed by mosquitoes in July! I don’t know about you but I don’t like walking around my yard when mosquitoes are buzzing in my ears and trying to fly up my nose, even though they never bite me. The past month has been dryer so the skeeter population has dropped to a tolerable level making it easier to spend time in the yard.

Enough with the excuses. Today I’m going to show you some of the daylilies we have in our yard. (Don’t forget you can always click on an image to see a bigger view)

I hope you enjoyed checking out our daylilies. Next week we will check out the other flowers in the yard.
