Walking around my yard with a camera.
This garden angel was a gift to my mother from her friend and neighbor Sheila.
She watches over the flowers.

They bloom every year at this time.

  1. The flowers are making me swoon ~ and the angel is just adorable. ;-)

  2. Yeah right, a glass of tea? You are giving me some serious conpetition with your yard. I can't believe the photography. Jeanie C.

  3. Oh so many beautiful flowers! I could just cry! It feels like it's been winter forever here *sighs* I wish the sceen was scratch and sniff *winks* And your garden angel is lovely! Vanna

  4. Oh my, this is INCREDIBLE! I'm over the moon with envy lol. Our new home has no yard, well it does but it's entirely comprised of beautiful stamped comcrete. So while we can have great BBQ's and basketball games back there and save lots of money on water... I wont be seeing anything like what you have. I might have to invest is lots of large posts for some beautiful flowers!

    I would be delighted if you would share this at my VIP party today as well.

    Fabulous work!

  6. Hi Rita May, Thank you for brightening my day! Ooooh, what beautiful flowers, thanks for sharing.

  9. EVERYTHING is just gorgeous! I so envy you being able to have plants and flowers all year round. As a florist that is my dream but will never happen. XO, Pinky
