What's Happening in the Garden this Week

I thought I would post a few pictures from the yard ...........


Some of my Orchids I inherited from my father......





Ground Cover just covered with pink flowers










Some of my yellow and purple Irises. The heat is just killing them!






Here we have taken old French Doors and installed them into the ground and attached them on each side as an entrance to the side yard. We have vines growing in and out of the windows. Some of the windows are gone and some are there.

This was in the way, so I thought I would take a picture of it...my husband collects vintage cars, this is his red 1954 Chevy Belair Convertible....

Hello, Anne! Thanks so much for visiting me on Pink Saturday--so nice to meet you and find your lovely place here in blogland! Those pink daisy-like flowers are gorgeous. And so in that vintage car! You have a pretty, happy place here...I look forward to visiting again. And your Etsy shop is full of great offerings--love those teacup bird feeders! Happy Summer Days :o)

I always look forward to your posts because your place and flowers are so beautiful. I wish I had even a teeny tiny bit of the green thumb you do. I LOVE the french doors used that way...just gorgeous!!!

Hi Annie,thank you for the visit and thank you so much for adding me to your list.
I showed my hubby your hubby's car and he loves it. He has been wanting a 54 to go with his 50.
