Those Spring Flingers that visited my garden at the end of May saw a very immature planting of annuals and perennials since I had to establish a new bed , due to the loss of some of my major shrubs.

With the coolest and rainiest Spring/Summer in about a hundred years the garden is lush with new growth.

So far I'm pleased with my new plantings and will continue to add to them. The collage above shows what's blooming in Sweet Garden Chicago.

Visit Carol at Maydreamsgardens to see what's blooming in gardens across the USA.


  1. Your collage is lovely, and shows off your garden beautifully. You have a nice variety blooming in July, and it looks very nice.

  2. I feel like we're just stuck in Spring. When does summer start round these parts??? Where is this global warming thing going on?

    Usually by this time in July its too miserable to get out and weed, but I'm kind of on top of it with the nice weather.

    thanks for the words of encouragement on my son moving out. I'm so looking forward to the next step in my life.

  3. Beautiful blooms Carolyn! This cool, wet spring and summer have been wonderful for establishing new plantings. It's hard to imagine a better year for revamping your garden.

  4. Beautiful blooms Ma! I don't know about you but I am loving the cool weather! Happy GBBD!

  5. I love the idea of your collage, and the herbs (is that thyme?) growing happily around the garden stones is lovely.

  6. I love the stepping stones surrounding by plants. Everything looks great. Your plants are loving the rain!

  7. Your garden looked beautiful when we saw it in May; it must be a riot of color with all these blooms now. I like the plantings around the stepping stones, too. I have been enjoying this cooler summer, and my garden has appreciated all the rain we've had.

  8. I enlarged your collage to see more details. You had some lovely blooms there! I see some that I grow, too.
