Have there been years that your garden has just been your favorite and maybe even kept a gardener’s journal – documenting what grew best where and what did not?
One of my favorite flowers to look forward to each year are my climbing roses – always a pure joy to see their first pops of gorgeous blooms. Strong, fragrant and the bees just LOVE them!
Another flower that just pops up where ever it pleases are the Shasta Daisies. I like to think of them as God’s sprinkles of icing in the garden, being as they are unplanned by me. Then there are the forever faithful Begonias that seem to get better with each year – kind of like us girls….only get better as we get older. Now isn’t that the truth! :)
Years ago I bought this old garden sampler on eBay. It was one of those pieces that just spoke to me – such a sweet saying coupled with soft and old fashioned colors. The piece also made me think of my mother. Mom always had a lovely flower garden and I recall how much joy her flowers brought to her.
Remembrance IS the sweetest flower that in the garden grows. Sweet memories. Unlike the fading of the flowers that come and go in the garden, my memories of gardens past are as fresh as the flowers that bloom today.
I would like to extend a warm thank you to all of you who were so sweet and left comments on the Parade Of Homes Tour. Your kindness is like a fresh bouquet of flowers – sweet and full of sunshine.
