Beauty in the Garden!

There is a lot going on in the garden now as new flowers burst into bloom daily.I am enjoying going out with my camera every day to capture all the beauty( I especially enjoy seeing my pictures of the garden in the winter months). So, here are a few of the shots that I took.

For some reason my pictures are being deleted of my blog-is anyone else having this problem?

Such a beautiful garden!! I could sit there and enjoy the view for a good hour! hee hee!
I noticed that some of my past posts, have a little red x where a picture used to be? I don't know what's going on? Hopefully, it won't keep happening?

Good morning Carolyn - You sure have a lot of beauties in your yard. I could not pick a favorite as they are all stunning. Love the china and the tea pot.

Carolyn, Love your new pics of the flowers. So great to view and admire this beauty.
Like your new header!

Yesterday, it was near 100 degrees here with an even hotter heat index and way too hot man or beast. (The heat sometimes brings the beast out of people!)

Carolyn....I think I am in love with your garden. My daughter told me today she couldn't see my pictures either. Can you check to see if you see mine? I do see yours and I am totally enjoying the virtual walk through your garden. Is it just me or do you think we have much in common, as in being grandmas and lovers of gardening? Well, except for one are an awesome gardener!!!!!!
