Documenting the state of the yard in early July. Starting in the back acreage.
The last of the Clematis vines to bloom. This one is the most delicate of the three. A light purple.
This is the largest of the Clematis’ with the deepest color.
These two photos are the front planters.
I’ll have to take some closeups on some new blooms popping up and hope some bloggers might be able to identify them for me.
Hope things are blooming nicely in your corner of the world.
Our little grandson is blooming nicely, too.
JJ turned 3 months yesterday and he has discovered his thumb. Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to get it into his mouth and he gets very frustrated. He survives the noises his older sister creates and can sleep through those.
The greenhouse is on it’s way to our son and daughter-in-law’s. Now we have a hole in the yard to deal with. I’ll show the before and after photos in a later post.

WOW! What beautiful blooms you have and that sweet little grand-baby is adorable also.
Happy Summer ~ FlowerLady
I’ve tried getting clematis to grow but it just… doesn’t. Yours are stunning! And your grandson is adorable!
I do love your deep purple Clematis. They say that Clematis like their head in the sun and their feet tin the shade!
Ellen, I love your garden! So lovely and peaceful full of gorgeous color! And your darling grandchild is a doll baby!
Beautiful and the little one is darling!
…lots of pretty things!
JJ is darling! And all boy — i am so glad he is doing well. We just met our five-month-old great-grandson for the first time — those same descriptive words work for him as well!! (His siblings are 12 and 10 — a bit of a different dynamic there!) …. such fun. Your garden and yard are beautiful. What a nice summer.
JJ is really growing and getting cuter every day. Your property is a slice of Heaven. So many pretty vistas. The windmill you have is something John has always wanted. Glad the greenhouse has a new home.
This area of your property is lovely . . . so many pretty things to draw the eye! I love the color of the dark purple clematis!
JJ is three months old already?! It seems like he just got here! (Is that how it seems to you too . . . or is it because our spring was so full and I got behind with everyone else’s happenings?)
Hello Ellen, so glad to know JJ is blooming as nicely as your beautiful garden! What sweet grandkids you have.
Ellen – glory, glory, glory! You have inherited a wealth of plants. So much to work with. Your clematis (all of them) are stunning. So glad JJ is thriving – like your garden!
Hello Ellen, your grandson is adorable. Your gardens are looking beautiful. Some of my favorites are the clematis and the daisies. Have a happy day and a great weekend ahead.
Just had to stop by.
Your garden looks lovely and your little grandson is adorable.
All the best Jan

Your yard is so lovely! And that grandbaby is more adorable!
