The Garden Bench

 Hello everyone,
             I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend. Here in Canada it is a long weekend as we are celebrating Canada Day .today.
Come and sit for a spell on the garden bench and smell the roses. The roses are Snow Pavement and they have a wonderful fragrance.

A basket full of peonies

The hydrangea in a planter.
The roses are more abundant this year then ever before-must be the weather.

I hope you have some time to stop and smell the roses and to all my Canadian friends Happy Canada Day!

Thank you for visiting,

Just beautiful and serene. I would love to be in that very spot right now. Although I am in California, we have Canadian satellite and I have enjoyed hearing all about Canada Day. Happy Canada Day!

Your photo's look enchanting Carolyn. When I look at your them I realise you must have had some good weather, as the roses are in bloom on PEI as well. It's a good year for roses in Holland too. Lucky us! The colours of the peonies are beautiful too.

Hope you and your family are fine? I will try to send an email this week!

Happy Canada Day Carolyn. I have been outside most of today enjoying our yard and flowers. We have one of our twin granddaughters staying with us for a few weeks and she's been helping me garden.

We were out of power for a couple days - so I am late in widhing you a happy Canada Day.

Your garden bench is gorgeous. Mine is a casualty of the bag storm that broke most of my potted plants, tore my bench to pieces and kept us in a heated no powered house for a few days.


Lovely pics.

Hi Carolyn So nice to see your lovely garden especially at this time of year with the roses the stars of the show

I wish I had the time to smell YOUR roses, darling Carolyn!
I'm going to choose some varieties of roses for my garden-to-do. I have to pay attention: here is so hot that even the roses flowers are burned! Incredible...
Your bench corner is adorable!


Happy Canada Day! The bench is wonderful!
