Why I like the Rain...



The flowers in the yard are loving this weather - a shower and then sunshine - just makes for a wonderful combination to bring out the beauty in the flowers.

The name of this rose is "Don Juan" and is a climbing one. It also 100_1197has somewhat of a nice frangrance. 

100_1200 Love the mulit-colors on this rose bush.

Mexican Heather and geraniums in a new flower box - got last Friday at a yard sale. 

100_1209 100_1214 Look closely and see there are two of these amaryllis blooming - back to back. The flowers are huge.

100_1231 Planted red geraniums in this wagon. They look so colorful from the road. 100_1202
Some of the Asiatic lillies I put out earlier.

These pictures are just a very - very small portion of all that is blooming at our home.

Must give God the thanks for allowing us to care for our "Garden of Eden".

Beautiful flowers! I love your rose bushes. I am ordering a fancy, schmancy one next week from North Carolina. I am probably crazy to spend so much on something I know nothing about raising!

Nothing like a good watering from above to make those flowers lovely! That Don Juan rose is beautiful. And I love the amaryllis too. Keep it living because as the bulb gets older, it seems to get larger and more blooms. Are those Asiatic Lillies easy to grow? I've admired those, but not bought one yet.

So beautiful! I just love looking at your flowers! Can't wait to see the many photos of them for the months to come!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Your garden is looking stunning. I never complain about the crazy English weather - the amount of rain we get is the very reason that our countryside is so lovely and that we too have such an abundance of flowers.

Your garden is beautiful! I love all the flowers. I don't have much coming up yet, but I hope to have some gladiolas soon.

I love the photos of your flowers. It reminds me of the ones we used to grow at our house--and someday I will do that again (when I have a yard and not a fire escape outside my window!)
