So Much Going On In The Garden

There are so many surprises going on in the garden this year . This large magenta red Clematis, Ernest Markham was planted years ago with the intent of it giving a nice contrast with the 19th century Rose, Cecile Brunner (often called Sweetheart Rose) that I planted on the front fence not far from the Lady Banks yellow climbing Rose.
The Cecile Brunner Rose is loaded with these sweet precious delicate roses .
And Lady Banks Climbing Rose continues to bloom profusely .
And, of course my Iris Garden is showcasing the many Iris that I purchased and planted many years ago .

I think every Iris that is in the above photo is blooming again this year !  It's amazing what some good soil , fertilizer and winter rains can do for a garden !
My Red Geraniums and the sweet little Calibracho Cabaret flowers are looking good ! 
The Herbs - Chives, Rosemary and Oregano are being joined by more Herbs - English Thyme, Sage, Dill, Winter Savory, Marjoram Sweet and Lemon Verbena that I have planted nearby .
 Additionally, the Roses are starting to open .

My garden is like nothing I have ever seen in the past .  It is looking fantastic !  Since the Oleander Hedge has been cut down many neighbors that walk by almost daily stop and tell me how beautiful it is looking .  One person even said that it is the prettiest garden in our little town .  Now - I don't know about that but it sure is pretty!  I have enjoyed many many hours outside nurturing my little piece of heaven.

Hope all is well where you are and if your geographical area is experiencing untoward weather conditions I pray for gentler weather .

  1. Your gardens just take my breath away. The colors are stunning and I imagine the fragrance from the roses and irises are wonderful. Keep those photos coming so we all can enjoy your special home.

Thanks for coming by. I love visitors and hope you enjoyed my little blog about a little old lady and her day to day life taking care of her little home and garden on a little budget. AND, you can tolerate my periodic rants - but not often.
