    Beautiful Eliza, what jewels you have!

  2. Wow! Gorgeous Hosta.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Amelia. It has the deepest purple flowers I’ve yet seen atop strong foliage. One of my favorites as it is a bit slug resistant, too, of which I am plagued. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Alice Pratt says:

    Pretty! Plant hangers are a great invention….more possibilities for even more flowers and for windchimes. I have Shepherds hooks on each side of the deck stairs & a smaller Shepherd’s hook on the last post…deckrail planters are a great way to plant & have trailing plants.

  4. Ah I love pictures like that giving us a glimpse into your world.

  5. Laurie Graves says:

    Pretty! And I bet you spend as much time out there as we do on our patio.

  6. pastpeter says:

    Nice color combination!

  7. Vivian says:

    Are the red hanging flowers petunias? So lovely.

  8. So very pretty and colorful

    I have never tried hostas because of the slugs but this one think I should try. I also saw some lovely ones at Picton Castle too.

    Do you have a deer problem? They ate all of our hostas. The plants kept getting smaller each year and finally disappeared.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Deer are starting to encroach on the garden edges and nailed some hosta by the driveway/road. I put dog fur amongst the rest and it seems to be working, fingers crossed. One would think with the 100s of acres of woods around us, they’d leave my garden alone, but some plants are irresistible, I guess.

    A bit of country paradise! ๐Ÿ™‚ Those Hosta flowers are huge!!

  12. Indie says:

    Very pretty! I love that cute little birdhouse in the background.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Indie! My sister painted the birdhouse and gave it as a gift one Christmas. We’ve had wren nests in it twice, but this year they chose the house by the garden.

  13. Your hosta flowers are beautiful!๐Ÿ™‚

  14. tippysmom2 says:

    Very pretty flowers! You have the best garden. I really do need you to come to my house to get me started.

  15. Such a lovely lush space!

  16. Kris P says:

    I’d be happy if I could just get hosta foliage to grow, never mind the pretty flowers!

    Your garden photos are so peaceful. Thank you for sharing your serene piece of heaven.

  19. Widdershins says:

    So still and peaceful. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Kathy Sturr says:

    Soak it all in!

  21. Your hostas look beautiful! Ours are suffering this year – I think it’s the unusual heat.

  22. Peter Herpst says:

    Wonderful, especially the prolific hosta blooms!
