August Garden Party

Welcome to our August Garden Party!

Elizabeth and Co.

To celebrate summer, we're hosting a monthly garden party from May through September. I recently shared an update on what's been happening in my garden so far this summer. I should have titled that post, The Gourds Are Taking Over the World! That would have been only slightly dramatic. I hope your gardens are thriving and a little more under control!

Now get ready for some amazing garden tours and inspiration from our July Garden Party .....


This month's garden tour from Fishtail Cottage featured gorgeous roses in a variety of beautiful colors. And Tracie also shared a post on caring for roses that you'll definitely want to read and save for reference!






I have never had a fuchsia hanging basket, but after seeing how wonderful these look on Stacy's porch over at Sweethearts and Sweet Tarts, I think I need to give them a try!





Ready for an amazing transformation? Pricillas garden went from this ...


to this, in just three short years!



I also love the use of galvanized containers throughout the garden!




Imagine throwing seeds in a ditch and enjoying these beautiful lupins for years to come. Head over to Thelma's Days for all the details!







And that's just the beginning, now check out Thel's gorgeous garden tour!






If you're feeling the need for a little privacy in your garden, check out this lattice fence from Tara at Lehman Lane - pretty and functional!




I love the shadows the lattice creates across the patio!


And be sure to check out Tara's summer garden tour here!






Thanks so much to everyone who shared their garden inspiration!
You all deserve a feature!!!

Now on to this month's party.....

*Link up any outdoor or garden related project you'd like to share - what's growing in your yard or garden, patio gardens, landscaping ideas, outdoor craft projects, garden furniture, bringing the outdoors in, garden fresh recipes and of course we love pretty porches and patios too!

*A link back would be appreciated, especially if you'd like to be considered for a feature.

*We'll launch a new party on the first of the month. Feel free to link up as often as you like throughout the month!

Can't wait to see what's happening in your outdoor world!
