  5. oh Jody, your garden is stunning and I love all the beautiful flowers that you have. It was a beautiful weekend, but a little hot up here in Orange County. I did get down to Rogers Gardens and I wasn't disappointed, but very expensive. I was such a good girl, I didn't buy anything.

    Have a wonderful sunny week.

    1. Daniela, Thank you so much for stopping by! Every month is a different time in our garden, always surprise blooms everywhere. Unfortunately, it has been in the 90's where we live in San Diego. So, Stan and me are outside for a little bit watering and making sure the flowers are fine. The weather report said rain on Friday. We have our fingers crossed!! Have a wonderful week in your garden too, dear friend!
      Hugs, Jody ♥

  13. Jody & Stan,
    Your Garden doorway is more lovely that that of the Garden Center
    "Mr. Ed" and I visited this past week. . .as are your floral selections!
    My heart skipped a beat when I spied the Sunflower near the windmill!
    Truly, a Kansas Prairie Girl, through~and~through!
    I am quite smitten with your breathtakingly beautiful Chinese Snowball Viburnum!
    Thank you for the Garden Walk~About on this lovely Spring Day!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  14. Hi Pat, I love my windmills too, I got them from my mother. Whenever I see them spin, I feel she is with me in the garden. I wish the Chinese Snowball Viburnum would last longer. The blooms only last about 3 weeks. Thanks so much for stopping by, always love hearing from you!
    Hugs, Jody
