Garden Gatherings

 
The pond is inviting.

 
A volunteer bush is flowering and surrounding the shed.

 
I always wanted a mirror somewhere in the garden. 
It's reflecting the flowers...


 
and this Grandma Gardener.

 
Things change everyday.

 
A wire cloche I made guards these pink impatiens.


 
Trimmings from a wayward hedge grace Elizabeth's table.

Haven't the past few days been just the best . The flowers are filling out, bright and beautiful, the Annabelle's are budding, getting ready to show their white dress and the greens seem vibrant and lush.

Everything looks so pretty Penny. I like your mirror on the shed . . . and the push lawn mower, is that the one you use? (please tell me you have another). I like the sound a push lawnmower makes, however . . . hard work it is to push one around. I bet there are some who may have never heard that sound.

Ahhhhh . . . such a beautiful time of the year . . . what a wonderful world . . .

I didn't walk down to your garden shed ~ I could've taken some more wonderful photos!
