Side Door Flowers

 What is the old saying, backdoor visitors are the best or most welcomed? How about side door visitors? I love this side door with it's brick walkway and flowers lined on both sides. Here is a look at one side of the walkway.



A non flower eating bunny waits to greet you.


In the early summer I love to use pansies, violas and lobelia. Unfortunately I had a deer come up and eat all of these and pull the pansies right out of the planter. I've since replanted this with succulents something the deer don't usually eat.




  




Doesn't he look like he is winking at you……



It has been a crazy week here weather wise, 2 days of 90's, finally much needed rain, then a cool down.  It was 49 degrees at 7:00 this morning. It will be sunny and low 70's here today, a perfect summer day to me.

That's what I call a beautiful and friendly welcome! From the sounds of things in so many places, the summer weather has been crazy. I'm from the sunbelt (SE U.S.) and we had 1 day hit 90 this month. It rains every day!

It looks so fresh and pretty. Love it.
It's funny, our side door is off the driveway and it's the door I've used to come and go since the first day I bought the house. The only people who ever come to the front door are strangers. :)

Your gorgeous side garden definitely says welcome...even to the deer, I guess! We've been through a week of sweltering heat and humidity and now the cooler temps have arrived. Ahhh....enjoy!

We've had two weeks of unusually hot weather up here too, but it is a treat for us. Your garden bed is so pretty! The deer are a problem here too, but a couple of years ago we deer-fenced about 1.5 acres and now can plant what we like without fear of finding it all gone in the morning.

Laura,
Your flowers are simply beautiful. They are so full of color. It's funny that you mentioned the deers, as my post today is about a deer.

That purple flower is amazing! Have a peaceful weekend.
