Lonesome For My Garden

Hello everyone,
Today I thought I'd share some pictures I took of my flower gardens last year.  Being in Florida for awhile enjoying the warm weather and lush foilage makes me really lonesome for my  flower gardens back home.


My front flower bed by the driveway.





My four square garden with a mix of perennials overlooking my green house covered with ivy and hops vine.



The flower bed is leading up to our log home and rose arbor by the front porch.


The flower bed by the little red shed at my farm cottage.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Hope I didn't get you lonesome for summer, too!

I will be joining the following parties:
Show Off Your Cottage Monday
Outdoor Wednesday
Home and Garden Thursday
Show and Tell Friday

Love your foursquare bed and the little greenhouse covered with ivy! I like the entry way to your back door with the rose arbor too. You have beautiful gardens and I look forward to seeing more of them this spring and summer.

I used to live in Florida, but I didn't like the "no change of seasons."
Your garden is beautiful.

Hello,
I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Art, Books, Tea.' I love my tea bloggy friends. They certainly know how to appreciate a good cup of tea. Your blog is lovely, and the tea cup with the pink roses on your Valentine post is so pretty. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is charming and so cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

Hi again Nancy!

Thank you so much for getting back to me with the info re your garden's rose, and, too, for your lovely comment on my blog. My blog has a main 'Welcome Page' that remains static, so I hope it is not too confusing. My current post (A Room With A View) is listed in the sidebar at the top of the post listings for the past year, hope this helps...

I just wanted to tell you how much I love that 'Peace' Christmas card your friend gave you with the angel on it, very beautiful! A treasure. Loove your china collection also.

Enjoy the warm weather. It's freeezzzing in my corner of the world and spring is a long way off...Hope our snow goes soon! Take care. :-)

Lonesome? Heck girl you'v got me weeping over here. lol! Gardening is my #1 passion! What a Garden of Eden you have creatd! Love the vines on the greenhouse and the roses, and let's see, what else? Heck I just love it all! Hubby and I were in Southern UT last weekend. It wa 68 degrees and flowers were starting to bloom. We came home to snow and I am so ready for Spring.
