More images from Linderhof's garden -- from last week's garden tour . . . .the heat of this week has certainly taken a toll on some of the plants.
An arbor at the back of the patio -- sweet smelling pink roses climb over each side.
The brick path from the patio to the potting shed -- lemon balm lines the right side in front of the iron fence.
One of the many pieces of concrete in the garden -- this one holds flowers -- pansies in fall, lettuce in spring, and a combination of fern and caladium this summer.
The faerie garden -- the spikey things on the right are called fairy lilies. A lovely pink bloom.
As you walk up our drive -- two old ladders add interest, a "Southern" iron chair and the boxes (which are usually filled with begonias -- but this year some spilly purple plants) -- and just before the garden -- our frog fountain!
The pond and the backside of the cat!
The window box filling out nicely.
The tulip poplar with favorite pots -- French ones filled with endless summer hydrangea, a great concrete box filled with angel wing begonia and a favorite lion's head pot with pink geraniums. The plant in the clay pot is a fig tree -- tiny -- but perhaps some day Linderhof's gardens will have figs!
The angel wing begonia -- which will probably have to come in this winter -- it is absolutely stunning!
It's always fun to join in Artie's Share a Garden Sunday -- To see more great garden's (including Artie's) -- just head on over to Color Outside the Lines.
Martha, of course I LOVE it when you play along with Share a Garden Sunday! Your gardens are so magnificent - it's always a treat! I'm intrigued by the "lemon balm" tell me more about that.
Soooooooo pretty! I swooned at the arbor! Such a tease though, leaving us wanting more and more!
I again enjoyed seeing more of your beautiful garden...especially delightful are the varied pots with their blooms.
I stand in awe of your garden.It is stunning!
This is so cute! I love the wheelbarrow...and covet your pond :>...thanks for sharing!
What a wonderful tour it must have been! You have so many interesting features. I was so hot here last week also!
What a pleasure it must have been for your guests to enjoy tea and shortbread in your home.
i'd be so busy in your garden...so may vignettes!
I love seeing your beautiful garden.
I like seeing your garden and think the old ladders are a nice addition for interest. I especially like the wheelbarrow. Stay cool. It is 100 at the beach today and needless to say I am sitting on a beach towel here in the A/C sipping a tall ice tea. There is no way I am going outside again today:)
I love your yard! I also have lemon balm, and love the smell it gives off. Your gardens and spots are a thing of beauty, and you are very creative with them.
What a pretty garden, I would love it if we had an arbor like that in our backyard.
I lament that my yard is shady. Shady is nice that it is cool on a hot day, but it limits the selection of flowers. However, your shady garden is so tranquil and restful. I love how the arbor leads you to that bench. I want to go and sit there.
The fairy garden is SO cute! Love the wheelbarrow. :) I enjoyed the tour of your garden! ~~Rhonda
Your home and gardens are so so beautiful. What a source of joy they must be for you.
