IT'S A GARDEN PARTY AND YOU ARE INVITED!

There is a Garden Party going on and you are invited. Cielo at the House in Roses is having a Garden Party and we are to show our garden to celebrate the first day of summer. So sit back and enjoy my garden.....
First we will start in the patio and sit and relax and have some Lemonade.



Maybe BBQ some Hot Dogs........



It's 111 degrees today so maybe a dip in the pool?




Oh, lets take a little peek in the rose garden portion of the yard.....











Isn't this the cutiest "Flower Bed". If you look at another post of mine, I tell you how this is made

Here is the "heart" of the garden.......The Potting Shed


Do you smell the fragrance of all the Gardena plants? It just fills the air with a sweet fragrance!

(I love to pick fresh flowers and float them in a bowl of water in the house...it makes the whole room smell so good!)



Here's the Marigold bed in full bloom......this is the only plant that the squirrels and rabbits don't eat!


Oh, look inside this birdhouse and see the nest with little blue eggs......


Oh my, look inside this birdhouse and see the little birds that have just hatched. Don't they look hungry?


Check out this weird looking flower. What the heck is it?

The Petunias look like they are doing just fine...................the rabbits and squirrels haven't found them yet!






I have so many different
kinds of Lilies in so many colors!













Here is Charlie the Turtle, he saw us taking pictures and thought he would come on over to see if we have any food for him.


This is my Granddaughter Harper feeding him some carrots!

They almost look the same size!





Well, I have so much more to show you but you must get on over to Ceilo's blog and check out the other gardens. houseinroses.blogspot.com

Please come back to visit me another day because I have so much more to show you in my garden!

Your garden is spectacular, I don't know where I would like to sit if I were there. Would it be under your gorgeous veranda, playing in your adorable potting shed, or walking through your garden admiring all the flowers. You truly live in paradise, and you even have a lovely granddaughter too. You are blessed. Karen

LINDA said...

Such a peaceful, relaxing space. Your flowers are beautiful. Your pergola is enviable. Do you not have rain there? Or do you put out all the fabrics for pictures or on a daily basis? It is fantastic. Reminds me of the lenai on Golden Girls!
Thanks so much for sharing!

I have never seen so many gorgeous gardens as I have today. I enjoyed my tour of your garden so much. I just planted a gardenia bush last year and noticed this morning its first blooms. Inspired by your words I am going to go out and pick some to float in some water. Hope you're having a fabulous day. ~ Lynn

Judy said...

Wow, I love your garden and your blog. I will visit again soon. The garden party is so much fun. The nest with the eggs and babies is just too adorable for words.

Brenda Kula said...

I LOVE your patio! So hot there! Where on earth do you reside? I thought it was hot here in East Texas! Loved the tour. Especially, oh, how to break it down... The wonderful "bed" of flowers, the sweet little birds' eggs and the birdies! Your lovely granddaughter Harper (love the name) and the turtle. Oh, all so beautiful! So happy Cielo has made us a part of this. She's a sweetie pie!

Hello Annie, Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and viewing my garden photos. You have a very pretty garden. There are so many different types of blooms in your yard. I also love the quaint shed and your beautiful inground pool. You must surely enjoy sitting outdoors often in the summer, enjoying your lovely yard. Have a wonderful sunday!

Love the heart bed, the pool, the turtle !! It's all divine !

Nancy Jo said...

Well now Annie Frannie, that is some place to live in. I loved looking at the pictures. Harper is a cutie and so funny that you have a turtle that stops in. Ok So I get lots of good things at the thrift and yard sales. I don't have a turtle. I do have four Grand daughters.
I will be over for the garden party so please save me a seat.
