My Spring Garden

You may have noticed that there have not been that many posts about food on my blog lately. It is because during this time of the year, my garden is in full bloom. I would rather spend my time in the garden and arranging flowers than in front of the stove. Also, I am too busy planting my kitchen garden. I will do another post about my kitchen garden soon. In the meantime, please enjoy my colorful garden.

Exuberant bougainvillaeas

Abundance of astromariam

Exotic bird of paradise

Snowball bush

Leptospermum (New Zealand Tea Tree)


Australian wax flower

 Pincushion protea

White Hydrangea

Martha Washington Geranium

    Your gardens are so exquisite. I so enjoyed strolling along them today. I love that snowball bush, it took me back to when I was a child and my Grandma had one on the side of her house. It was so beautiful and I loved seeing all the snowballs. One year I counted 43.

    Your bird of paradise are so beautiful. I love seeing all the colors that form the bird shape. So pretty.

    And the roses so fragrant. My what large blooms you have. The colors, everything, just exquisite.

    Thank you for taking me strolling today. I so enjoyed the scents and the beauty that surrounded me.

    Many hugs and much love sweetie, Sherry
