Late Spring Garden



Do you ever forget that you've got a stash of images on your digital camera's memory card? Tonight I took some shots of a custom jewelry design I've been working on. Then when I went to download the images to my computer I realized my card was almost full. Here are a couple treasures I found.

The top photo is what my garden looked like a few weeks ago. Isn't it gorgeous! It's my favorite time in the garden. The colors are so Monet.

The white rose belongs to my sister. It was extremely fragrant - that wonderful old-fashioned rose scent. This shot was taken a couple weeks ago when our family gathered for my niece's graduation.

Many of the flowers that you see in my garden came from my sister. She's a walking encyclopedia of plant knowledge. Several years ago she shared divisions from her gardens. I've since shared divisions from those plants. It's so wonderful to have plants to give away. Right now my Stella d'Oro day lilies are blooming in profusion. I think I need to share again.
