Come into the garden . . . my flowers would like to meet you

Come with me for a little stroll and let's see what is blooming in the garden today . . .

~Daisies ~

~ Calla Lily ~

Hmmm . . . somebunny thinks she is hiding here. I hope she isn't planning to eat these like she has eaten some of my other flowers. Ahem!!

~ Lantana ~

One of the best performers in our drought conditions.

~ Aucuba ~

I love the green and yellow foliage. This one is called "Mr. Goldstrike".

~ Black Eyed Susan ~

~ A magnolia bud ~

~ Starting to unfurl ~

This plant with it's gorgeous glossy foliage and breathtakingly beautiful blossoms is awesome. Mine is a smaller version called "Little Gem" but I have seen huge ones here that amaze me no matter how many times I see them.

~ Hydrangea ~

Step into my herb garden. It's not big, but it has all the herbs I use in cooking and it's right outside my kitchen door so it is convenient.

~ Basil, Lemon Balm & Summer Savory ~

Our climate is very conducive to growing rosemary. It grows profusely and is available for cutting all year long.

Thank you so much for touring my garden today. It was a pleasure to have you. I have been really enjoying reading about what's blooming on some of your blogs. It is so interesting to see the different things that grow in backyards across our great country.

Remember today is Flag Day ~ get out your flag and fly it proudly. Whatever your plans include for this weekend, I hope you enjoy them ****


  1. I sure enjoyed the tour of your garden today. I especially love the hydrangeas. Thanks for stopping by today. Come back anytime.


  2. I love flowers , especially the calla lillies and the hydrangea~ So pretty, I am a florist so there really isn't a flower I don't like!

  3. Hi, Kim on the clickable photos. I asked the very same thing after I started blogging & someone told me the secret. When you load your photos & then try to move them around by dragging, then they won't be clickable anymore to open larger.

    So, here's what I do. I load all my phots first & remember to load them in the order you want them to show on your blog, cause the last one ends up at the top. I figure out the order, then load them all, THEN go back and add my text. That's what I've found to be the easiest method for keeping the photos clickable so they can be made larger.

    Hope this helps!
