Gratuitous Friday photos

It’s been another hot, dry week but the gardens are as beautiful as ever. Proof is in the pictures and I just couldn’t resist doing a tiny Garden Bloggers Bloom Day preview since I always miss it when it falls on a weekend. Click on for a larger view or hover over for identification. And don’t forget to check out our Pinterest pages for a different sort of look at (almost) all of the plants in the different gardens.

Have a fabulous weekend – I look forward to seeing everyone else’s blooms on the actual day. (Thanks to Carol of May Dreams Gardens for always hosting bloom day.)
