Sunday Garden Tour

                                                                                Hello everyone,

                                                             I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
                                                            Did you notice the new gate in our arbor....
                                                            my husband made it for my birthday.I
                                                           love how it gives more enclosure to our
                                                           Chelsea Garden.

Roses are blooming in the
garden now.

                                                                        Still some peony blooms.

                                                                       The Golden Elder is blooming
                                                                       on the upper left.
                                                                           Not sure what these roses are called.

                                                                             Golden Celebration.

                                                                          Some of my hydrangeas are
                                                                         starting to bloom.
                                                                       The climbing rose on the left
                                                                       with small white flowers is a
                                                                       wild rose that works good in this
                                                                       spot by the bay window.
                                                                     I love tall stately delphiniums.

                                                                       Stella D 'Ora & Golden Celebration.
                                                           And before you go a small
                                                                     bouquet of peonies for you.

                                                                    The handmade lace doily
                                                                    came from a returning
                                                                   Japanese visitor whose
                                                                   mother made this for me ~
                                                                   a thoughtful and special gift!

                                                                  Hope you enjoyed the tour!

And that gate if wonderful and that color of paint is so perfect for the pastel flowers. I wish I was there to tour your lovely garden in person! oh... and those soft pink roses..... just swoonable.
