So the daffodils told me…

I have been waiting for my daffodils to flower for over three years. Every spring I see the leaves come up but alas no flowers.

My Old Fashioned Rose Garden

I am in the middle of renovating, finishing and replanting my rose garden.

Beautiful Garden Vignettes

Providing for one fleeting moment in garden time a picture of exquisite beauty and fragrance. Here we have some perennial wallflowers, a euryops daisy and…

A beautiful Monarch

A beautiful monarch butterfly visited our garden this week. It’s in the middle of winter here but still we have butterflies aplenty come a sunny winter’s day. Here he is enjoying the nectar from a perennial wallflower. I love his furry white spotted body too!
