Well, the heat spell is over for a couple of days, so lets go out and see how the garden is doing this morning!

I love Vinca. They come in a variety of colors too. They are so carefree, you do not need to pinch off any old flowers. The flowers are so compact sometimes, that they cover themselves in flowers. They call these the impatiens for full sun.

I Love baskets full of Petunias! This is bright red Petunias with a hint of white!

Cattails in the Koi Pond

Yellow water Lily plants just set off water ponds!

This Apple tree looks a little early this year! This branch is way to heavy!

This peach tree makes the best fresh sweet peaches. I cannot wait till they are ready to be picked!

I love Gerbera Daisies. They come in a variety of colors. I have some plants that are years old, they just keep coming back and blooming year after year. I do notice that the ones in semi-shade do alot better than the ones in full sun.

Cute frog birdhouse with vincas and shasta daisies in the back ground.

Zinnas are the best annual flower. They just keep blooming and blooming and they stay in there all summer long till the beginning of fall!

Thanks for visiting with me this morning. Come back again soon, I have so much more to show you in my garden!

Love, Anne Fannie

Hey Ms Anne, your petunias are gorgeous. The whole garden is beautiful as always. I came to visit to show my husband the picture you had on your header, the one with the two french doors. I simply love how you had them in your garden. And what do you know, I have two 7 ft old french doors that I wanted him to fix for me. Is there any way, if it's not too much trouble, you could send me a photo? I've been trying to tell him how they were fixed, but he just looks at me like I'm nuts, which I am. I'd so appreciate it. Hugs, RoseMarie

You always have the prettiest things. We never have much luck with water lilies in our pond but the cattails are huge this year.

Ms. Anne, I have just discovered your blog and I am in love already. I would love to be able to grow all the beautiful flowers that you do but alas, I seem to not have a "green" thumb. :( I will just love looking at all your flowers.

That yellow water lily looks exactly like one I took a photo of this morning in my pond! How funny! I only have yellow, so I guess it's not all that surprising!

Great flowers! Oh how I wish I had a peach tree in my back yard.

Growing up my aunt had two in her big yard. One produced the best peaches and the other one always had this jell coming out of them. Sort of looked like clear worms. YUCK!

But that one tree had wonderful peaches and we would make peach pie and icecream when I would visit. YUM!

So glad your petunias survived..most of mine died, just couldn't take the heat...only the lemonade one under the fig tree made it...they were all in the shade too..
some of my plants are struggling and I set up a "nursery" area on the patio to doctor them back to health. and you are right, Corona is husband gets locksmith calls from there occasionally.

Your basket of red petunias is so beautiful! I love how it's overflowing into a great round mass of gorgeous red blooms.

Thanks for coming by the Rosehaven Cottage blog. I hope you come back often so we can get to know one another.

Anne, hi from Oatman! I love your flowers. They are so pretty! Someday I would love to get some flowers planted! Right now I have one house plant that I have managed to not kill so I'm doing good there! I finally got my etsy site up so if you have a chance check it out at
