I am joining Modern Country Style's English Garden Party.
We have over a foot of snow still on the ground and when I saw this party filled with the glories of Spring I thought it might help me with the Grey day blues!
These are just some miscellaneous pictures of my still much work needed gardens-
You will enter through that charming arbor that Jonathan made me for Mother's day last year-
Snow drops are one of the earliest flowers to bloom here in Colorado.
Then the snowball bush (more like a tree!) comes alive in bloom along with my iris
This little area was a fountain I made last year- It is a temporary dwelling but looks sweet as you make your way to the back door.
Another little figure smelling the Zebrina Malva, family to the hollyhock
Let's stop and have a little spot of tea before we continue our tour.
My bed of iris at the back door. I thinned this bed out in the fall so it will look a little sparse this year.
I want to put some other annuals that will bloom all summer here-
My Beverly Sills Iris- such a pretty shade. Iris have a wonderful scent if you are looking for fragrance in your garden.
A David Austin Rose- I will have to look up the name
I have a love for pink roses! If you have never heard of David Austin roses look them up-
they have the old fashion petals that softly open and most have the most delicious fragrance
that you don't find in hybrids.
These white iris are huge
The present situation of the garden! Actually this is last years picture we have probably another foot than this shows!
Oh my posting these pictures are so making me yearn for Spring. I have to keep reminding myself
'Patience is a Virtue" and I reply back, "it's a virtue I don't have!"
I hope to get my seeds started next week-Planting those little seeds and watching them reach for the sunlight in their little pots does help pacify my hankering for digging in the dirt- at least it helps a little bit!
Be sure and see the rest of the English Parties !
