Success is not final, failure is not fatal - it is the courage to continue that counts.

Lots of things are blooming in the garden right now. Best of all, our temperatures have been on the milder side, so we actually get to sit outside and enjoy it all. 
Im Garten gruent und blueht es momentan. Dank der eher milden Temperaturen die wir zur Zeit haben, koennen wir sogar draussen sitzen und das alles geniessen. 


  1. Just adore those morning glories--it's always as if a light is shining through them. So pretty.
    And I love the fat bumble. Looks like he can hardly balance on that lavender.

  2. All the colors are so pretty Anke and how nice that you are enjoying cooler temps. I noticed last night that it was cooler here too, I'm glad because the heat has been just draining me.

  3. I just did a walkabout of my gardens yesterday to do a post on stay tuned. Yours are way more beautiful and diverse than mine, because you have a green thumb!!

  4. All of your pictures of color are beautiful, Anke. My favorite is the cone flower! Carroll just planted one for me in one of my perennial gardens. I am hoping to be able to pick up one for the other perennial garden this coming week!

  5. What beautiful flowers, Anke! Stunning, for sure!

  6. Look at the gorgeous colors! I love the close up of the bee. Buz buzz
