Random thoughts and photos….


Hello friends!

I am dreaming of spring and having spring fever terribly!

I can't wait for my back patio to come alive again.

I still have months to go before it looks like this again…..






I have ordered 10 more David Austin Roses and can't wait to see these Abraham Darbys blooming again this summer.




My front flower bed is full of scattered seeds, peony poppies, clematis, snapdragons and more.



I have ordered some lavender colored peony poppies to add to my pink ones. I just love their fluffy heads!


A side bed off of my back patio, more David Austins.



I love to bring in the fresh roses and can't wait for spring to come!



I am still enjoying winter and we need more snow but for now, I'm dreaming of spring.

  2. Are you familiar with the catalog/website 'Select Seeds'? They have a wonderful assortment of seeds and plants, mostly vintage--their poppies are lovely--once you have a few they re-seed and even create some different colors.

  5. Girl! You have me really wanting to order some roses but I can't quite forget about the last time I had them and the fighting and destruction of the beetles. And the subsequent ripping out of all of the roses because I was so disgusted!
