All Fenced In

I must say we're both pretty pleased with this new section of fencing that Richard has just completed.
What do I need now - a climbing red rose ...

..... or maybe a few Sweet Peas?

These are just a few dozen of the hundreds that are growing all around the fences.

Perennial Wallflower



Self-sown Calendulas

White Correa, which never stops flowering

Pink Correa

This Cornus (Dogwood) is almost as pretty in the winter as in the summer

Hi Alice ~~ Your new fence and your flowers all look so lovely. Love the sef grown sweet peas. Mine are struggling along. Glad you enjoy the jokes and stories I post. No, I don't have a million people supplying me - only about half a dozen. I bought
joke books and quote books. I get some Inspirational stories from the net. Take care, Alice, Love, Merle.

What a handy husband you have! Ross says to tell him nice job with the fence! It looks great, and I love that photo of Richard. Sorry we didn't get there in time with the post hole digger. Too much ocean in between!
Believe it or not I was just thinking this morning that it's been quite a while since you posted any garden photos, and was wishing you'd show some...and look at wish came true! LOL
You have some nice bright spots of colour. I love the shade of both the Wallflower and Alyssum.
Jonquils and Calendulas...both so cheerful :)
I can't wait to see all those lovely Sweetpeas blooming.
We planted 2 dogwoods in the spring..a pink and a white. The pink is doing well but sadly, we think the white is dead.

You two are always busy at it, and it is all worth it because everything looks fab.
The new white picket fence is so lovely, I'd love one just like it.
As for your garden and flowers well, I am always in awe of these.
Sweetpea's are a favourite, but I've never tried growing them because they seem to difficult.
Have a lovely weekend, take care, Kali :-)
