Balcony Views

Good Morning!
I am sitting up here on our balcony having my morning smoothie.

It is such a lovely day.

                                  The balcony is off our bedroom.

                                        Looking over the balcony.

             The view over the balcony now.
                 These dahlia's spend the winter in our basement right in the pot and in the spring leaf out                  again and bloom every summer -easy!
 A bouquet of garden roses brighten the table.

I am joining My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday.

     Hope you have a lovely day!

Love your views and glad you have a basement! When we retire - to Missouri - I fear I may not have one.

Linda said... live a charming life dear! What beautiful gardens! Do you have a gardener...or do you do the work yourself? Either way I know it brings you great joy...and I thank you for sharing it with all of us here in blogland!

Hi Carolyn,
A lovely view! The garden is looking very good, no rain for so long here has left my garden tired. It must be wonderful to sit up high and appreciate all the hard work, the colors and that big pond! Pure heaven!

What a treat it must be to walk through your bedroom door to have a breath of fresh air and to admire the beautiful view from your balcony.

I will not say you are a lucky woman because you and your husband worked hard to build such a heaven. It must be very rewarding to see it each morning, to think you built it together with love.

Thank you to share with us a little bit of your private paradise.

I am curious as to what you put into your smoothie. I have just recently started making them for my breakfast and would like some good ideas for them.

I love the view of your gardens , and then the little pond off in the distance a bit. With a little imagination, I thought I felt a soft breeze and heard some birdsong.
