Around the Yard

Hey everyone-Happy Bloomin' Tuesday! We had an overcast but beautifully cool weekend North of Philly, got a good 1.5 to 2 inches of gentle rain for the garden too. Hope yours was great!

My green beans have purple flowers this year! I've only had white in the past.
Now I'm really curious to try the beans.

The standard orange day lilies are blooming now, these are from my G-Mom-B's yard.
Always nice to see them:@)

Zucchini plants are still small but they're happy!
Looks like the gardener has some weeding to do...

Just as I was finishing mowing the lawn I was stung by a bee! Talk about whimpering like a baby-that hurt! Luckily I don't have any allergies so I got over it quickly, but HEY-totally uncalled for!
Have a happy day
and watch out for bees!

PS-The Pillsbury Doughboy Cook-Along will be up tomorrow at noon!

  1. I wish we had room for a vegetable garden here. Alas, no. But we do have room for herbs and they are doing nicely.


  2. sorry about the bee sting! glad it was nothing serious! love that you got rain and have things growing. we're parched, hot and dry here...

  3. Our weather is still crappy. Not that cold but gray clouds all the time.
    Everything is looking happy and healthy over there. BTW if you have a have weeding to do. It is never done.
    Take solace in knowing the stupid bee is now dead from stinging you. He gave up his life for a moment of glory.

  4. YIKES!...that's aweful.I know how that feels! Not fun!
    The flowers are beauties!
    I know your having fun mowing with the new lawm mower! And you can't hardly wait for these tasty veggies, I can't hardly wait to see what you do with 'em!!
    ps...I'm getting anxious about June 15th cookalong and giveaway!
    I sure hope we have lots of bloggy buddies to join in the fun!!

  5. Wow, it's hard to imagine 2 inches of rain being gentle. We've been getting soooo much rain as well, but I guess that's why everything is so green. Sorry about the bee sting.

  6. I don't know if it is just an old wives' tale, but they say once you get stung by a bee, you won't ever get stung again! Glad you weren't allergic. You certainly have a green thumb. xo, P.S. My cook along post is up, I hope I wasn't too anxious :-)

  7. We've had beautiful summer rain, but we still occasionally freeze at night, so no garden to enjoy it... :( I'm planting tomatoes and peppers today. Wish me luck!

    Blessings, Debbie

  8. Your garden is looking great Lynn. My daylilies still haven't bloomed. Sorry about the bee sting. A cut onion or fresh savory rubbed on it will stop the sting (I know, a lot of good that does you now!)

  9. Bee stings DO hurt..... but bees are very important and their numbers have been declining for years. Hope your boo boo goes away soon.


  10. I enjoy day lilies. Mine are in various stages of bloom...

  11. Your veggies are a little ahead of mine, it'll be interesting to see what your green beans turn out like.
    I'm allergic to bee & wasp stings so I'm always on the lookout for them when I'm gardening.

  12. OUCH! You poor thing. I'm glad you aren't allergic, but that doesn't make it hurt any less.

  13. Your flower blossoms are lovely! Darn bee.

  14. Oh my, you poor thing! I have only ever been stung once and I really was in pain for a good few hours. Thank God you aren't allergic to them!

    Take care and best wishes for a wonderful week.

  15. Oh, I love your orange lilies! I have some that were transplanted from my grandmother's house to my mother's house and then to every house where I have ever lived. Sadly, it looks like the drought has done them in this year.

  16. I don't think I've ever seen purple flowers on beans! I hate bee stings, I'm a big baby when I get one. We had our first pepper from one of our plants tonight. I just can't wait for tomatoes!

  17. I am embarressed to say I haven't done much with the vegetable garden yet. But my flowers seem to be doing fine. I'm just running behind this year! Your photos are great.
    Bee stings really do hurt. I'm glad you are not allergic. Hopefully that's the last bee sting you'll ever have.
    Have a great week.

  18. What a great blog; you have a new follower and that would be Moi! I ws visiting Julie at
    Going to check out what I have been missing.
    PS I have a great recipe for the dough boy.

  19. Your flowers and garden look so lush. Love all that organic beauty!

  20. YOur garden looks lovely, things are still kind of behind here but hopefully soon there will be blooms. Nice rain you had!! Amazing how much God's watering can improves a garden.

  21. Ouch you poor thing, I swell up terribly from bee stings. Pretty Daylily, I always love my pass-a-longs in the garden, they remind me of the person. Your Zucchini is farther along than my squash, it seems stunted this year. :(

  22. Such a very nice garden! Sooo sorry you were stung. If it had been me, I'd be heading to the doctor--I'm fairly allergic to everything skin-wise. I hope it's well soon. Looks like your healthy garden will produce a lot for you this year!

  23. Lynn,
    The lilies are lovely, aren't they? I used to grow beans and zucchini, tomatoes. But the bunnies eat it all. And the squirrels help too. So this year, only herbs and 2 patio tomatoes, and flowers that rabbits don't eat!
    Have a beautiful day!

  24. Ohhhhhhhhh, hate getting bee stings! I am hoping for some rain tomorrow. I need it at least twice a week to keep things green.

  25. I love to see such lovely blooms on veggie plants! I just read a post about bug bites. LOL! So sorry! Jean


Thanks for stopping by!
