A Life Less Ordinary

The Essence of Summer – Embracing Colors and Scents in the Yard

I am happy with my warm and colorful Wordless Wednesday this week. Summer is finally approaching…

To check out more summer bliss and colors, swing by Jude’s blog for her Garden Challenge, or see what summer prompts at The Daily Post. πŸ™‚

Happy Wednesday and don’t forget to smell the flowers!


  1. So pretty! Is that top one a peony? I love them and their scent.

    • Yes. They are gorgeous! I’m not very good with naming flowers, but I remember the owner mentioning peonies. After your question, I looked it up, and, indeed, these are the peonies. πŸ™‚

  2. Lovely lupins! Thanks for the link πŸ™‚

  3. Wow! Gorgeous flowers! So bright and colorful! πŸ™‚

  4. What a delightful array of colors. I unfortunately am smelling diesel rather than flowers today, but the fuel has been pumped out of the tank and we are now getting ready to remove it 😁

    • I’d take the smell of flowers above diesel any day, even if means sitting in a green yard instead of on a blue ocean right now. πŸ™‚ Mark and I have been looking forward to the summer for so long, that we cherish these colors and sun rays as if it has been ages since we experienced them. It kind of feels like it has been ages…

  5. A symphony of color. I came over from wordlesswednesday.

  6. Oh the weather has obviously taken a turn for the better. Look at all of those gorgeous flowers! How wonderful to see the world come alive in color.

  7. Absolutely beautiful πŸ™‚

  8. Gorgeous! Glad you’re getting a plant lesson along the way too. πŸ™‚ Have a great week, Liesbet!

    • Thanks, Jo. Back to the computer during the week… But, still surrounded by plant and tree life. Have a great week yourself!

  9. Such a beautiful collection of flowers. The lupine is especially exquisite.

  10. So pretty and the blue of the lupin is so intense!

  11. The flowers are so beautiful… The vibrant color of the flowers make them pop out of the green scenery.. Truly mesmerized by their beauty

    • Thank you, Rosary. This is the first time we house sit with a garden and we thoroughly love the colors and the summer. New flowers are still popping up and surprising us!
