Week of Flowers 2021 – Day One

I’m joining Cathy at Words and Herbs blog for her second annual Week of Flowers, where we share daily posts of flowers and gardens to give a dose of cheer to those in northern climes, where the short days this time of year are often dark and dreary. It does my heart good to look back to the green and flowery profusion of the summer months. Open to all, feel free to join in by clicking the link above, or simply to see links to what others are sharing.

    Summery! I love the pale yellow day lilies.

  2. Great idea to revisit summer as we approach the darkest weeks of the year.

  3. Anne says:

    What an excellent idea to showcase flowers from the past season. This section of your garden looks very pretty.

  4. Cathy says:

    It is so lovely to see your garden again Eliza! I missed it this summer. It looks as lush and lovely as ever. 😃 At this time of year it is hard to believe our gardens are still there, ready to show up again next summer. Thanks for joining in!

  5. A lovely memory of what was as well as what will be.

  6. Cathy says:

    What a super border Eliza! Particularly that pale yellow hemerocallis and the echinacea. Yes – encouragement that these good things are around the corner!

  7. Pretty, pretty, pretty and definitely appreciated on these frosty, dark days.

    A lovingly tended garden, that will bloom, again.

  11. Dee Min says:

    This will be nostalgic and fun. Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful pics to take me back to summery days on these gray cold days.

  12. Wonderful idea and beautiful photo – thank you

  13. Dale says:

    What a wonderful idea. And lovely first pic for the week!

  14. Ah, summer memories! I can almost feel the sunshine’s warmth. Lovely garden, Eliza.

  15. Kris P says:

    A good reminder that displays like that lie ahead!

  16. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    What a lovely idea, reminder of longer warmer days🙂

    With any luck, we’ll get some gray, cold days before Christmas. I noticed just today that the bedding pansies, cyclamen, and snapdragons are going in around town — what a difference! Have you had snow yet? You might have said, and I either missed it or forgot. Those pale yellow lilies are gorgeous.

      Thank you, Linda. I never wish for cold, gray days, but I can imagine you might however. 🙂 We’ve had a dusting of snow, but nothing lasting. The ground needs to freeze first and that usually happens around mid-Dec. most years. Snow falling after that usually lasts until March, but our winters are getting warmer, so melting occurs along with the arrival of new snow. I enjoy the milder winters naturally!

  18. Can’t believe it’s December as it feels like I was just enjoying your beautiful flowers!🙂

  19. A great idea, and beautiful Day One of summer flowers!

  20. pbmgarden says:

    So rich and luscious.

  21. I agree, so nice to revisit scenes like these!

  22. With the winds whipping here and a threat of heavy snow next Wednesday your garden will be missed as bad as mine.

  23. jillslawit says:

    Thank you for the beautiful splash of brightness on the cold, grey and very wet day here in Northern England.

    Aren’t those flowers beautiful! I simply love them ❤
