Oh, the Glory of Summer

Bright and breathtaking blooms are part of the allure of beloved summer.



While having lunch in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, one day this summer, the flowers outside a restaurant made eating lunch optional.



They were so incredibly colorful and lush that we were in no rush to get inside.


We had to stop and take photos for you.  

One of the scrapbooks I keep includes photos and magazine cut-outs, as well as stories, about gardening.


For sure, photos of the flowers in this post are going to go into the scrapbook.


Whoever designed and planted these flowers deserves a medal. 


They bring such joy to every passerby.

DO YOU PLANT SEVERAL DIFFERENT COLORED BLOOMS IN ONE AREA, SUCH AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS?

Susan, have you ever considered submitting YOUR floral photos to a magazine? The ones in your yard are gorgeous, too.

Wow, that is a nice bed of flowers for a restaurant. I can see why you took your time going in, lots to look at. That white and red flower is so unique - it looks like a red star. When I had my little garden, I used to plant roses, and a few purple flowers, and my front yard had yellow lilies. I never mixed them up. But this bed of flowers looks really attractive.

So colorful! I love those blooms and will be sorry when winter comes and they're gone again until next year. Have a lovely weekend, XOXO

Beautiful...that is probably what I miss most when fall rolls in...the summer colors. But I love the fall colors best. You asked what state I was in ...I am right outside Nashville TN.
