Sargent House Museum Garden



B and I went for an early morning constitutional and decided to relax on the Sargent House Museum lawn. This is a wonderful little patch of land that runs from Middle Street down to Main Street in Gloucester. They have a nice little butterfly garden that brought in this Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

Visit Today's Flowers

I have Bee Balm in my front yard that is just like what you have pictured. In the evenings between five and seven-ish we have a ruby throated hummingbird that comes to visit and sip from the Monarda nectar. It's when I tend to be sitting in the garden and I love to see him. Others have dared to mention that my garden is a bit to "wild" but I like it that way.

Such a cheery garden! I also have red bee balm in my garden to attract the hummingbirds! I wish you a lovely day enjoying today's flowers!

Look at you and B out there enjoying one of our beautiful mornings we've been having! I love walking on a peaceful summer morning.

You make me think I should go out and stalk our Bee Balm for the hummers! It's always been one of their favorites and usually one hummer will defend it so as to keep all the others away.

A beaautiful garden with lovely flowers and a Hummer as a bonus.
