Flowers on the Farm

The yard work and flowers around the farm have been a work in progress. This year is more about maintaining than anything else. With all the projects going on, we thought it was smarter to keep it that way! However, I couldn't resist the urge to buy a new color of an iris when I found one in the local garden center, for 60% off!

Here is a little bit of what is in bloom right now!

So many hosta's!

My favorite hosta.

I love my lilies!

 We have so many hollyhock. We never planted a single one, but in our weeding and cleaning up, we uncovered them from years ago! A lady that lived hear more than twenty years ago, remembers that the lady before her had hollyhocks! How cool is that?

 This is the newest mystery plant we have uncovered. We tore down a shed that was attached to the back of the house, and have since found about five of these growing. We both agreed that they did not look like a weed, so because of our curiosity we let them live! It looks like one is ready to bloom and I am so excited to see what it is! It is very much resembling a flower I know as "Moon Plant". 

What do you think it is?


  1. Beyond beautiful! Love the hostage and lilies! You're about 1 weeks ahead of us here in NH!

  2. Oops! That was supposed to be hostas!!!! Auto correct ;/

  3. Your lilies are amazing. I love the last one you shared.
    What is the trick to growing hollyhocks? I just do not have it? Please share, yours are beautiful.
    I can not wait to find out what the mystery plant is.

  4. Oh my, your flower photos are stunning! Each blossom is incredibly beautiful :) Thanks for sharing!


  6. Love the lilies and the hosta! Do you know the hostas name? It's so pretty. I have those same hollyhocks but insects are so attracted to those plants they just destroy the foliage.

    1. I don't know the name of the hosta, but I wish I did! Is there any way I can learn that? I love how you know all the names of yours!
