Dear Gentle Readers...Humor me today as I need to be reminded of flowers and summer. As you suspect this is a repost of scent and bloom. There is apparently a huge snow storm coming my way. So Vee it looks like you did let me borrow some of your winter ;)
My favorite rose of the moment...Lillian Austin
Taking a break from garden carnage to have a cool drink and breath. Two days till vacation at the beach, and life in the garden needs some control!!! I rather love it though really. Whacking, prunning, planting, weeding, dead heading, lifting and rearranging. I have friends that are flabbergasted that I keep such a large garden in their opinion. My last garden was three times the size on 3/4 of an acre and every square foot planted.
My lily walk on the north side...the scent is intoxicating!
The only thing that would complete this for me is a pool. If we can ever figure out how to put one in the ground with out spending a fortune. Prices have literally tripled since we installed our last pool. And yes swimming is one of the other forms of exercise I enjoy! Perfect combo really!
The snow is quite lovely and I will pretend I am back in New England for the few days this will last. I know I have no legit reason to whine. Some of you must feel stuck in eternal winter. Mmmm breath deeply, can't you just smell that heady scent of lilies <3
