Come Stroll Through my Garden with Me...

Good Morning Friends & Folk ~

the rain has stopped for a moment, so I headed out to the garden for a visit...
won't you come along with me?

I love Iris, and have about 6 or 7 different colors...

sweet, pink roses climbing outside of their fence...

my strawberries are coming in, and the bunnies have found some before me!!

these are my Black Petunias, that my friend Joan gifted me with...
I LOVE them!!

my huge Lily that Peter gave me for Easter ~

Lemon Verbena, 2 varieties of Lavender, and Mums
living together peacefully ~

Sweet Annie, Catmint and Lemon Thyme :

Rosemary bush

Foxglove ~

Lily of the Valley from my sister Louisea

Pincushion Flower

my little Garden Witch nodder

Artemesia & Hedcote Lavender
with an old plow nestled amongst them...

come sit a spell with me for a while...

Black Star Birdhouse
(that the bees live in!)

one of my beeskeps in with the strawberries ~

Asiatic Lillies, just getting ready to bloom :
