Garden photos provide such wonderful inspiration, and are like food for the soul during times when our own gardens are less than lush and colorful. Share your beautiful pics here!

Gorgeous, Lee Anne! I think that is the best marrying of those large flowered Hibiscus with other garden flowers that I've seen! Same with the Rose Campion as well, very nicely done.

I don't actually have a keyboard yet...I'm at school right now....where I have a keyboard... but no pictures!

I'll post some tonight when I get home. Even without the keyboard I can still post a pic.

I love yours by the way!!

Beautiful photo Lee Anne! Is that Hibiscus a tropical or a hardy one?

Lots of honeysuckle blooming in back of the garage. Those daylilies there in the picture are all late blooming ones so they start very end of July and go well into August.

Rita, that space is enchanting! A spot I'd be drawn to, can't wait to see it all in bloom this summer!

Jumper, such wonderful clumps of Iris! That bed is going to bun fun to watch develop through the season too!

So many blooms are opening every day, I just came in from taking a few pics.

This is a polychromatic bed, with mostly pastels.

This garden is at the main entrance everyone uses, at the back of the house. Its a memorial garden for my friend, Jan, who lived and died here, and did some gardening in this area. She loved purples and blues, that's where the color scheme came from.

That is a sweet tribute Neal.
I like all the long views on Cubits. The other site has so many threads of single flowers.
These are some favorites of mine.
