Outdoor Wednesday ~ My Yard June 30th

For the next several weeks I’m in the state of Washington so my Outdoor Wednesday Posts will be from the Western Washington area.

Susan at A Southern DayDreamer is our kind hostess for this weekly event. Click over to her blog to see Outdoor Posts from around the world.


I took a walk around the yard today to see what might be blooming. My hydrangeas are just getting some color.


I was happy to see my Lavender survived the dry weather the Seattle area has been experiencing seeing how my tenants (two of my adult children) don’t consider watering part of their routine upkeep of the house.


The wild rose bush is flourishing and we have a very few pears growing on the Pear tree and a good amount of blueberries plumping up.

I’m still getting my bearings here in the Northwest. I’m not up to my usual bloggy speed. We are replacing my old double oven this week and I’m scrambling to get things in order for our July 4th Barbecue. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods and if you are in the United States enjoy the 4th!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Oh Ellen, it is just so fun to see outdoor shots of your very own yard, since you don’t have one to photograph in Cal. My hydrangeas are now crispy. wow, you have your own blueberries! Yea

  2. Your backyard blooms are all spectacular Ellen! I particularly luv the blue/purplish hydrangeas…they are my favorite. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ellen, Beautiful flowers and berry bushes. Of course I love Hydrangeas since purple is my favorite color.

    Come see me.

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday.

  4. Your mosaics are just lovely. I love hydrangeas so I had a favorite without even thinking. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the weekend. Blessings…Mary

  5. Ellen, gorgeous mosaics! Love how you got the hydrangeas before really blooming. I have a bush that has bloomed and on it’s way out already. Hate to see it go. They are so pretty.

  6. Your yard is giving beautiful blooms for you to enjoy 🙂 I’m sure they must smell lovely too. And what a sweet thought to think that you’ll be able to harvest your own pears and blackberries.

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  7. You reminded me that I must check the blueberries at our favorite picking spot and see if they are ready.

    Have a happy time with your family.

  8. Ellen!

    Looking at your garden pictures makes me hard to believe you aren’t a gardener, as you always claim!! 🙂


    What fun to have a new double oven! I have really liked having a double oven.

  9. Looks like it was a beautiful wedding! we are heading to NFLD for a nephew’s wedding next week. I’ve never been there so it will be new blog fodder 🙂
