A few days ago, a sweet friend called me and said
"the garden is in full bloom, want to come see?"
My reply? I am on my way!
Let's go through the garden gate and get a peek of her beautiful flowers.
This iris is one of my favorites. The bloom was so pretty with its ruffles and lovely lavender color.
Just look at the red rose buds on the bush behind.
I'll have to make another visit to see that in bloom!
Here is another iris in the most delicious pink.
Not a great picture, but I had to share it's gorgeous color.
This sweet angel stood guard over the loveliness.
Clematis growing on the back fence and there
were azaleas blooming in every corner.
The lovely gate and garden shed were painted
by her talented daughter along with a mailbox on a post
in her garden. I didn't get a picture of that, but she uses it to tuck her gardening gloves and tools inside. Such a clever idea don't you think? May have to work that into my yard somehow.
Just look at these beautiful white azaleas.
I have never seen any like these.
They have a blush of pink on the blooms.
A true gardener has great joy in sharing a garden they have lovingly planted and tended. It is also a great joy to visit
the garden of a friend.
I hope our little tour brought you a little
happiness as well.
