Summer Garden

One of the delights about being in Maine for the summer are the flowers. I don't have a lot of them at the cabin but I do have containers that I place around a tree next to the cabin. I can see them from the porch.



By the end of the summer, this little area should be quite full of flowers. I will get some more this week. I like zinnias and snapdragons for cutting and the rest I like for looking.




I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. Be sure to stop in and see all the beautiful pink posts.



Happy Pink Saturday!

Snapdragons are one of my favorite cutting flower. Sorry to say I don't have room to grow them in my small yard. I too do a lot of container flower growing on my deck. Beautiful photos!!

Pretty flowers and they must thrive in the cooler temperatures. It's so hot here we are watering our flowers twice daily. Have a wonderful weekend!

I wish we only had container gardening here, are garden is over-run with marestail and the sooner we clear it it is back again!! Your flowers are very pretty and I can imagine sitting by the lake, cup of Yorkshire tea and relaxing......zzzzz

Have a great weekend in and around the cabin and with family and friends. Love Jackie.x

Cozying up the cottage making it a summer home to enjoy. That's fun I know. Pace yourself... I'm sure that there's much to do.

BEautiful pink flowers. WE are just getting warm enough for a few flowers to come out. Peonies haven't opened yet and I can hardly wait.
Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Ooooh, I would love to be in a cabin in Maine for the summer! I'm hoping for a week in Bass Harbor. Your flowers are so pretty. I hope your summer there is wonderful. Hugs, Terri

Lovely! I hope to eventually get to Maine on a visit to our son and his wife who live in Mass. Our daughter-in-law went to college at Bates. How lovely to have a cabin in the woods for the summer!

Best,
Bonnie

Suggestion - I hate spam too, but I like to make it easy for people to comment. You can ask blogger to moderate only comments left on older posts - this way your posts can be commented on freely, but you can trap spammers on old posts in moderation, where you can dump them. That's what I do, and it keeps the spam off my older posts. Go to the dashboard/settings/ comments/moderation setting and choose "only on posts older than (pick a number)". Good luck!
