Garden Beauties & Some Visitors

Saturday, May 3, 2014

The spring garden is in full bloom with lots of color.

I have been weeding,
and also taking some time to smell the roses and enjoy these other garden beauties...

Knock Out Roses...

Azaleas and a visiting bee...

Bottle Brush...

Ferns growing on the rooftop...

Japanese Pittosporum...

Candytuft is one of my favorite border flowers.
A petite plant with tiny leaves and blooms.

It's hard to tell in this picture, but this plant is small and the leaves are tiny...

Tiny leaves with an even TINIER little bee-thingy perched on it...

White clematis vine...

Purple clematis...

Pansy's in stone garden baskets...

Not sure the name of this shrub but the blooms sure are pretty...

Purple Bearded Iris...

The Cherokee Rose blooms in early spring and it's dainty flower lasts for only a short time...

This one has a visitor...

You can read about the legend of the Cherokee Rose HERE.

Hope you enjoyed the blooms and bees!

Have a wonderful weekend and hop back over for AMAZE ME MONDAY, party begins at 5pm on Sunday!

  1. Great photography showing the delicate beauty of your garden! I enjoyed it very much.

  2. Your garden is so beautiful,Cindy! I'm jealous, we've been having LOTS of rain and cool weather here in MO. Not really 'growing' weather. Hopefully soon, the temps will warm and my garden will look prettier. Until then, I'll take another look at yours. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!! Happy weekend!

  3. Everything in your garden is just so pretty! I love the photography.
