My obsession..........

OK, I've let you go for a few days without pictures of my garden......Now, it's time to see more!

I've shown you this border before-----
Right side of garden.........

(click on the pictures to enlarge)

This is the left side of the garden......

Below is a rosebud...

Sorry, it's a little blurry, but I don't know how to remove a picture, so it stays.

This is the most fragrant rose I've ever smelled~~~~
The rose is: Climbing Aloha -- Rosa trepadora 'Aloha'

Below is a Coral Bells 'Caramel' on the left and Bergenia on the right. These are both new this year~~
Lambs Ears sending up her flower shoots---
We had a sunny day yesterday, and today it is raining again. I worked outside for 3 hours in the rain this morning. I've decided that this is the only way I can get the work done. The forecast is for rain for the next TEN days. Oh JOY, the lawns will be nice and green! I'm trying to be optimistic about this! So much for now.
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

I never tire of wondering in the garden. Mine has no flowers, well not many, so I enjoy sharing yours.

Thanks for the traveling wishes.
And stop back by soon...I just had to make one last (really this is the last one) before heading to the airport 4:30 in the morning.

Hope you have a blessed weekend and it spills over into the week.

Your garden looks wonderful....I LOVE the Coral Bells (such a great color on the leaves!). We've had quite a bit of rain in KC, too...saves on the water bill and certainly perks up the plants!

Your strawberry preserves look beautiful...they wouldn't last long at our house.

I so enjoyed seeing your cakes and the cake decorating turtorial.

Hope you're having a great weekend!! Dana
