You're just trying to make me feel jealous with all your colour amongst all our greyness, aren't you. Love seeing the familiar sights in the garden.

A riot of colour. What a great job you have done in your garden..

I can see why you love those beautiful irises...so tall and stately.
Amazing to see that new little Rhody blooming so beautifully.
Those lovely sweetpeas make me smile. They were the first flower I ever grew (in my mother's garden). I'm imagining the fresh perfume. Mmmm.
The path with those perky Calendulas is so inviting. Love that photo! But I love them all :)
The Eremophila is so pretty....lovely colour.
And the Jasmine...oh my! I'd love to stand in that doorway and breathe the air!
Thanks for adding such wonderful colour to my world, dear friend :)

Good morning, Frances, your garden looks lovely. You have so much borders and a lot of plants! And you have spring! In Germany the last good day is over, we have worked the two last days in the garden. Now it is grey - for the comming week - and it becomes much more colder.

It's wonderful seeing all this gorgeous color. We're in the dead of winter and the only colors visible are white & gray. I hope all is well and that none of your family is experiencing the floods we are hearing about in the news.
