Your garden is beautiful, it belongs on a tour! The poppies are such a pretty color, and those are great shots of the fuzzy golden bees on your lavender. It was so fun to see you the other day, thanks for saying Hi!
Wow, your summer garden is a work of art, Tatyana!Love the swallowtail, see it often around my yard too.Annelie
BEAUTIFULL pictures !!!!
Truly beautiful! I especially love the photos of the bees. I thought about you last week when I was in Portland visiting my son. I am so jealous of your weather right now; the Pacific northwest summer is so kind to flowers!
Tatyana, I love your arbor, is very an elegant and intimate.
Happy 4th July!
Beautiful flowers and lovely bees!
Lovely serene garden, the flowers are beautiful against the green hedges and trees.Eileen
In our cold, rainy weather I am getting summer therapy when I visit your garden, Tatyana - thank you for sharing your beautiful place
And that is why June is my favorite month! Love the palms in the planters, really adds to the seating area.
You had a GREAT month Tatyana! It's gorgeous there. I'd love to sit on your patio and take it all in! It was a little too warm for pleasant here but I'll still take summer over winter any day!
Fabulous photos Tatyana, your garden is looking gorgeous!
It is still paradise in your garden Tatyana, and the photos are always amazing! May i know the name of the first photo? I agree with Alison's comment, your garden should be in the tour!

Gorgeous, Tatyana! And you captured some of the best spots in your garden with the best light. I wish I lived closer and I would stop on over. :)
Lovely beyond words....when my garden grows up, I want it to look just like yours.Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams
OMG, can you say perfection! Your garden is flawless. Okay a couple of questions… The border in the picture with arbor and white clematis is sharp enough to cut you. What do you use to edge your beds and how often do you do it and what type of mulch do you use? Mine are starting to erode and my paths are getting smaller. I can’t afford to lose any more of them they’ve already decreased in width by about 8 inches. And my other question is do you have to bring in the patio palms during the winter? I know I should, but I get so envious when I see such a gorgeous lush garden. It’s what I strive for all the time, but never seem to achieve. Hope I didn’t bombard you with too many questions. :0)
PlantPostings, thank you. Maybe, one day you will be in our corner of the world...Jen, thank you! It always looks better on pictures!Randy, thank you! As I said to Jen, photography is very kind to reality. But, I should admit, June is my favorite month in the garden, and it looks good. We don't bring our palms inside. Those are hardy mediterranean palm. When snowing, I brush off the snow from them, just in case. We use a normal edger once in two weeks. Mulch is fine bark. It's pricy, that is why we spread it only once in several years.Right now, the borders are covered by thick layer of fir needles.Have a great July!
Awesome shots, they're all spectacular!!! =)
That's a new peony to me single ??I love the soft oriental poppy and so much more!!
Your pictures are especially sharp and crisp. I love the close ups of the blooms and their pollinators. Beautiful!!!
Beautiful shots! Love the close-ups with the bees on. Must have been hard to photograph cause these little busy bees don't really sit still for long do they ;-)Bye,Marian
Lovely photographs! Especially that blue geranium.
Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
