Your house is looking just beautiful! I too want a lovely garden like that but its going to take some time as I need to finish the house renos first :0)


Vickie, It does take time to make a beautiful garden. I started one way back when I was renting a place, and I lost in all during some bad circumstances. It was very enjoyable to see it mature during the years.... I miss it very much. I can see your garden is off to a wonderful start of beauty that will grow into something magnificent!

*** The very first photo I enjoyed almost took my breath away, Vickie! I'm always TOTALLY a-m-a-z-e-d by the gardening talents of some, and the dedication/time it takes to cultivate beauty such as that. "WOW" is certainly not an eloquent way to put it, but, "it works"! Beauuuuutiful blog~~ what a nice way to start the day here in the desert! Thanks so much! Linda in AZ


Hi Vickie, that was really intersting to see your house before and how it is now. Things have grown well. My favourite rose is the Pierre de Ronsard. Just love all those other photos. Thanks for sharing, makes me all inspired to get out in my garden!

Hi Vickie, what a wonderful job you have done with your garden in the time you have been there.
There certainly are some beautiful gardens in those magazines.


The pictures are beautiful and the flowers are BREATHTAKING!!
