I was standing at one of my kitchen window this morning thinking about sharing my garden with Fishtail Cottage Garden party.
When it hit me, show my garden outside my kitchen window! Sometimes creative moments like this just happen :-}.
There are 5 windows in my kitchen and the views I'm sharing are a few views from some of them!
The window I look out the most is where I do most of my cooking from. It's been so hot here I really have not spent much time out weeding or deadheading. My Lambsear (left) needs some serious deadheading!
Rubeckia (yellow) variegated zebra grass (middle) and some heirloom Balsam on right!
Looking out to the left of the window. There is another long bed across from this area, it's against the house.
The Lambsear has taken over, on the far left is Nepata (catmint), by the obelisk is Chocolate Joe Pye Weed, the two yellow flowers is not Rubeckia but annual Helianthus, a very hearty reseeder.
The next week is actually going to be cooler, so I'll be heading outdoors to do some maintenance.
Looking to the right, I made the cow you see - was really in to them a while back. Heirloom Balsam, climbing Hydrangea is on the fence, and a Karl Forester grass and pink phlox.
Farther down, phlox, balsam, a juniper. Below this area is my herb garden.
A very pretty Morning Glory outside the window growing tall on a trellis against the wall.
I was hanging out the window to get this shot!
This is all the way down on the right, taken from a window on the left side in my kitchen nook. Behind this area is our garage.
The next few photos are taken just outside my kitchen nook to the right of the garden area shared.
Normally I live in this area in the summer, I can count on one hand how many times I've sat out here this summer.
Another sitting area just a few feet from the last one. I do believe the the chair is calling me!
Hope you enjoy this little tour of my garden area outside my kitchen.
What views do you have from your kitchen?
