A Walk in my Garden to find Red, White and Blue

In continuing with my red, white and blue theme I thought it would be fun to share photos of those colors outside my home, beginning with my red hummingbird feeder.

It's such a delight to watch a number of hummingbirds come to this feeder while we eat.  The first few weeks (or month!) while I had this up they weren't confident enough to drink the syrup but over time they became comfortable with the environment and so many come throughout the day.  I am so glad to have these feathered friends frequent my garden and some day I hope to catch one with the camera!

Right below my feeder are these beautiful annabelle hydrangea's which are at their peak right now.  The branches get so heavy with the large blooms!  So they are something white in my garden!

Blue is found in my new flip flops which get me around my garden.

I was so happy to find these on a recent outing to an outlet mall.  They look great with so many of my summer outfits.

I couldn't resist showing you my star gazer lily (which isn't red, white or blue) but oh so pretty.

 It has to be my favorite flower with it's large bloom and intoxicating scent (I wish you could smell it!)  Peonies and roses come a close 2nd on my favorites list. 

Thank you for taking a walk through my garden looking at things red, white and blue! 

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!

I can smell that lilly from here. :)
Love your hummer feeder. I have one as well. I really enjoy seeing them on the feeder. They are really quick and I have yet to get a photo of one! :)
Thanks for the tour. I loved it!

That lily is so gorgeous. I wish my lily is as beautiful as that. Love your photos by the way.

Lilies are my favorite flowers...I actually have a great palette of colored lilies(white, yellow, and my favorite... a dark red one) Love what you've done with the little space that you have there!

It was a nice description of your garden, It's so clear that I could imagine I was really in your garden and smelling every flowers specially your stargazing lily. Thanks for taking us to a walk at your garden.
