Today’s photos are from Christine Bosacki, who says, “I grow flowers and some vegetables on a corner suburban lot in Woodridge, Illinois, a southwest suburb of Chicago. I enjoy gardening as an artistic outlet and as physical and mental therapy! Our garden is a wonderful place to relax and listen to the birds and watch the butterflies and hummingbirds.”

The plant with lime green leaves and purple flowers in front is ‘Sweet Kate’ spiderwort.

    I really like how naturally your clumps of red asiatic lilies are spread throughout your garden...they look like kisses left by Mother Nature. A special thanks for including the id on the lime green spiderwort. I was initially puzzling on it until I saw that you shared the info. It is very bright and eye catching. Your whole garden gives off a happy vibe!

    I love your pairing of the red and yellow lilies with the white daisies. Great job, Christine!

    Absolutely amazing how many goodies can be crammed into a small space... and I just love those morning glories, they've always been a favorite. There appears to be a pergola over an old Adirondack chair, and a swimming pool too. I bet there's a lot more in that yard, I need more pictures, wider views, and from different angles. Thank you, Christine.

    Love the sprinkling of the red lilies throughout the garden - keeps your eyes moving along the way.

    What happy colors, Christine! Your garden surely conveys cheer to you and your lucky neighbors. 'Love the dash of chartreuse and purple you've added with Sweet Kate Spiderwort. She's one of my favorites.

    looks like a cheerful, happy spot! Is that a wisteria vine or ? on the pergola? Would be fun to see other corners of your yard.
