Thought I'd stave off the sticky miserable heat with some garden pictures. The big floppy white beauties to the left are called garden phlox "David." They are almost as tall as I am and hold themselves quite upright without support. Just beautiful. Then the empty space off the deck where St. Francis now resides (we call him Frank) was where the old pond was. It's been filled in and mulched and probably in the fall I'll plant some other things there. I left one big pennisetum clump there. The other photos obviously are of the pond and the lillies blooming and those guys circling like crazy think I am going to feed them.....NOT!!! Little swimming piggly wigglies is what they are! Anyway, if it's hot where you are stay cool and enjoy!

Beautiful photos Mary, I clicked on them to get full effect, and they look like they belong in a garden magazine!

Your pond is wonderful! We have a water fall & a fountain attached by an overflow. We enjoy it so much especially on a hot sticky day. I would love to have some of the tallest grass plant. We presently have water iris that are taking over. Love your pictures! Beautiful relaxing paradise...sharon

I would love to come and sit for a while in your garden. It looks so tranquil in picutres, it must be even more so in person. The phlox is gorgeous! (I'm writing this on my list to research!)
