Roses and Lemonade!

I love this bicycle that I got at Winner's last year. It was brown so I painted it Pistashio green.
Doesn't it look pretty in amongst the roses?
Why don't you sit for a spell and enjoy a refreshing cool drink of lemonade and maybe read for awhile as you enjoy the fragrance of the roses?

I'm in love with this bicycle and I'm certain that my new favorite color is pistachio green with accents of pink!

Blessings to you!

The bike is really cute and I do love the flowers round and about.
Nice choice of color for your garden bike.

I enjoyed this tasty and refreshing virtual lemonade. Wonderful! AND our conversation was uplifting. But you know us girls...there's always so much to talk about.

Plez, pop over to my place for virtual tea and croissant with jam on sentimental grocery store dishes from the past.

Have a blessed day,

OH MY STARS!!!! I LOVE love LoVe that garden bike! SWOON!!!

Okay, now that I'm awake (I have a bump on my head from swooning, LOL!) I have to tell you that I've seen a lot of these garden bikes on blog posts and that is just absolutely THE most gorgeous one I've seen! It's also very fitting for your THE most gorgeous garden I've seen, too! I know you've mentioned in the comments on my blog that there are lot's of pretty gardens there on Prince Edward Island, but I just LOVE your blog with all the garden photos. Your love for gardening just shows through and is a bright spot in my day. I had the very nicest grandfather ever who passed away when I was 3yrs old and he was quite the gardener. When I see someone who puts as much passion and love into their garden as he did (like you DO) it just touches my heart!

((Hugs)) to you for sharing your love of the garden...a piece of Heaven on Earth!

Carolyn I always love coming over and relaxing in your beautiful gardens! Haven't had time to do that in awhile and I have missed it!
The Bicycle is so adorable! I found a vintage bicycle at a yard sale for $5.oo and want to paint it and nestle it somewhere in my yard- finding time to do all those things is just the thing!!

Hi Carolyn
I would love to sit and enjoy a glass of lemonade in your beautiful garden. There's only one problem. You may have trouble getting rid of me!

Your gardens are just beautiful!!!!

Here's another fan of the bicycle! And your garden is just gorgeous!!! I would love to know the name of that rose as it looks similar to one that I have. My grandmother passed it down, and no one knows the name of it.
I am always working on my gardens now both veggie and flowers. I wish that we had the dirt and weather that you have, mainly the dirt. Here we have good ol' Georgia clay!

Your pistashio green bicycle is beautiful mixed in with the roses. What a gorgeous color. Oh, and I was wrong. I see your current photos but going way, way back they're missing. What in the world is going on? What a darn shame! Did you find out from Blogger what happened?

Beverly said...

Thank you for the gracious hospitality. It is all wonderful.

I've been on the hunt for a bicycle for our garden. I'm still looking for the perfect match.

Yours looks so pretty, and I love that green.
