Flowers

Here are some pictures from the Bag Lady's flower garden (please ignore the weeds....)

Lilies with some Mallows visible behind them:

Blue and Pink Delphiniums:

The Bag Lady's flower garden is not up to standard this year. It was too dry and cold early in the season, and the Bag Lady has been terribly lazy about weeding....

So pretty!
Isn't weeding just the biggest pain in the butt ever ?!?! well maybe after trying to lose weight :)

Miz said...

*whew*
thank goodness here we have NO STANDARDS (and lots of weeds).

messymimi said...

Gorgeous. And since I wouldn't know a weed if it walked up and introduced itself, I didn't mind them one bit.

Hilary said...

Very pretty. I grow a lovely garden of weeds myself.

JavaChick said...

Love your lilies!

I think it has been a bad gardening year all around. We've been getting tons of rain but very little sun. Sad. :(

Leah J. Utas said...

Very pretty. Those delphiniums look like they're guarding the place.

Geosomin said...

The delphinium looks HUGE...

We have vines in our yard and so we tend to ignore the weeds..until the vines lose their leaves in the fall...and then we have a weed farm. I just don't have the time to weed as I should...I'm glad our neighbors are very patient.

They're so vibrant!

I kinda like weeding. There's something satisfying about yanking them out of the ground.

Crabby McSlacker said...

Beautiful!

And weeds? I didn't see any weeds!

the Bag Lady said...

Crazylady - thanks! I despise weeding. And trying to lose weight. (which is probably why I'm the plump lady with the weedy garden!)

Miz - my standards have been slipping of late... at least, as far as the weeds go!

Messymimi - thanks! And I have so many weeds around here, they just might start walking up and introducing themselves to people!

Hilary - I'm sure your yard looks wonderful!

Javachick - it's been pretty much the opposite here - it was dry and cold for much of June, then we had about 5 inches of rain, and it's been hot and dry ever since!
Not a good gardening year.

dfLeah - they do, rather, don't they? Almost like you have to get past them to get to that door! :)

Geo - it's the angle of the photograph - they aren't anywhere near as tall as they usually are.
I have a vine like that, too! It's starting to take over the steps.

Sagan - there is something satisfying about yanking those damned weeds out, isn't there? (It's just that there are so darned many to yank around here!)

Crabby - strategic photography! Really... the foxtail and other grasses, along with the weeds that were included in the birdseed last winter have almost taken over half of the garden. Sigh.

Lil' Nana said...

Wow, you're on a winning streak lately.
I never win anything *pout*

Although I think you have to enter to actually win, right?

Your flowers look amazing. Thanks for the beautiful pictures.

the Bag Lady said...

Lois - thanks for the compliment, and THANKS for the prize!! I'm tickled pink! :)

Lil Nana - I'm actually amazed - I rarely win anything, either, and twice in one week?? Way cool! :)

Scrumpy said...

Well, it certainly looks amazing to me.

POD said...

The Baglady has been busy blogging. Lovely flowers!

the Bag Lady said...

Scrumpy - thanks! Strategic photography. :)

POD - the blogging does tend to interfere with the weeding, especially on really hot days! It's so nice and cool in the house....

Reb said...

Love your lilies Sis and the delphiniums are beautiful...are we supposed to pull weeds?

the Bag Lady said...

Reb - only if they are in the way of a good photo!! :)

Aleta said...

Absolutely lovely! Ahhhh, don't diss the weeds. It's the only thing I can grow. Hehe

the Bag Lady said...

Aleta - thanks! I seem to have a really green thumb when it comes to weeds, too! :)
