  1. Lovely flowers. My Veronica and Pink Mallow are blooming too. Your Eryngium looks great. I wish I could grow some Eryngium but my E. alpinum didn't sprout and my E. leavenworthii are still very small, they are an annual so I hope they will start getting bigger and bloom sometime.

  2. Lovely views over your garden to Lake Michigan. You have so many different blooming flowers, looks great!

  3. Beautiful photographs of your garden! It's a sea of colour!

  4. Very beautiful flowers.I enjoy looking your nice captures.

  5. I love your prairie style gardens and the views are lovely. The evening primrose - gorgeous. Thanks for taking the time to take pics and post them st4raight away!

  6. Hey JC...thanks for your visit to my blog...Hope you will return!!

  8. Beautiful flowers and the views are fantastic.


  9. So beautiful photographs :-)

    Enjoy the summer!

  10. Vielen Dank für den netten Kommentar auf meinem Blog. Ich habe eine Bridge-Kamera von Canon. Da brauche ich kein Objektiv wechseln. So gelingen schnell Bilder für die ich ein Tele brauche.

    Die Blumen sind wunderschön. Die Missouri-Nachtkerze habe ich mir in diesem Jahr gekauft. Ich finde die Früchte so schön.
    Gruß, Anette

  11. I really enjoy the views out over the lake. I need to get over to walk the beach one of these days. My husband and I both enjoy hiking of all sorts--through the woods, on the beach, through a meadow, etc. But we haven't done a beach walk yet this summer. Beautiful views!
