The Golden Glow of Summer

Have a wonderful weekend!
~Diane~









































"The grass and flowers looked as though fresh-washed by summer showers, and not a single blade was any color but the brightest green.  The air was soft and balmy, though invigorating; and instead of sunlight there was a golden and rosy glory everywhere; something like the afterglow of a Southern sunset in midsummer."

  2. I LOVE those little purple flowers in the first 2 pics.

    Thanks for your kind words about Tiger Lily. And you're right. They really are a part of the family, especially when you've had them for so long.

    1. I love them also, mainly for their fragrance. They are called heliotrope and are an old fashioned flower. The fragrance of this plant is an intoxicating vanilla-spiced-fruit scent that is most noticeable in the morning and early evening. I believe that the name means "facing the sun". I have them in a container next to a garden bench, so I can enjoy the scent.

  7. Oh Diane, your flowers are spectacular. We are in the middle of a cold winter but glorious when the sun appears. I've lost my blogging mojo - don't know how you do it but I love it when I visit your blog, hoping for inspiration to fall upon me so I can blog once again. I love a perfumed garden. TFS
