Simple Pleasures

each day in our garden there are new surprises


wish you could smell the delicate fragrance of these Wisteria blooms


walking barefoot in the morning dew to pick a few posies…not something I would normally do in April, walk barefoot that is….we’re having a little heat wave with temperatures a good 20 degrees warmer than usual




the lily of the valley are just coming on, white ones first and later some pink


a sure sign that Spring is here,  my sweetie surprised me by putting up our angel is just off our back porch….the sound of the water is beautiful….the birds enjoy it too

“No two gardens are the same.  No two days are the same in one garden.”  ~Hugh Johnson

never enough flowers, if you missed them here and here…
