Ahhh..just walking around, looking at things in bloom lifted my spirits.
My foxtail fern seems to be thriving in the hot sunshine from the patioAnd million bells are singing in the rain!
My pot of lantana...& a very old butterfly house
& rose campion just beginning to blossom
Mom would love this!!!
I've discovered it is a biennial
The rose I wanted chopped down
but I couldn't let it go until the buds opened.
They were a welcome surprise this morning!
The angel was a gift from our friends when my Mom passed away
This is the first year I have planted any knock outs!
The shade garden--in neglect & bad need of weeding!
More of them to be planted...
An old clematis showing off out by Bob's car shop This is a decorative plate I received on Mother's Day
from Jeff & April. I love the verse:
"Quiet moments are the perfect time
to think of each loved one closest to our heart
and recall the good times
You will find yourself smiling at the
that come rushing back.
Be sure to remind your friends & family
of how much you love them
and how much they are on your mind
during those quiet moments."
