I am happy to share a new petunia called Rhythm & Blues.  I decided to adopt them for the front of our home this summer and took these photos in June.  I have not taken additonal photos but I am happy to report that they have almost doubled in size so it was a great choice.  They are easy to maintain and don't seem to need as much dead-heading as some of the other petunias I have in other areas of our home gardens.  I have included some other photos of our front gardens as well.  If you did not see the photos I took of our deck and the back of our home, you can view them by scrolling back a wee bit.  I have added a few pieces of statuary as well, and was so pleased to include a pretty pale pink toned tree peony bloom that has finally decided to bloom this year.  I planted it about 3 years ago.  This is also a new rose that I am sharing.  I hope you enjoy viewing the flowers and gardens shown here.  Our Canadian winter snows will be here within the next three months or so and although I love the beauty of the snow-laden trees and lawns, I will indeed miss the lovely colors of summer. I would love to hear about your summer gardens as well. Hugs,Gayle.
