Completely Selfish West Coast Post!

For those of you who have not seen the sun for a week and want to send this bratty El Nino
to his room already! I thought I'd share a bit of pretty, green & dry outdoorsiness!

First Bee's garden....






Everyone enjoys Bee's beautiful backyard!



What's a garden without roses???
The entire side of the yard was just replanted
and is quite "Disneyland" like!!


But poor "Hula Girl" had to go to hibiscus heaven to
accommodate the new look...RIP.





Now, on to Kae's garden....



Sweet peas and birds and ferns abound! And aside
from the 100 degree weather...it's just like England. :)





Yes, the table is always set with chintz & strawberries! ;}











Wade on over to Cindy's for more SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY !


(Now back to the thunder, lightening & hail!
I LOVE IT!)

  1. What beautiful gardens.

    What do you mean you have no garden? Everyone can have a garden. I lived in a tiny apt once and only had a tiny balcony but I still had it full of pots and flowers.

    Even if you just have a step you could put a plant. So go out there and get yourself a pot and some flowers and start your new garden.

    Hugs,
    Joanne

  33. Thank you for posting those lovely garden pictures. It was just what this freezing gal in western Pennsylvania needed. Planting is soooo far away (we can't put plants out until June 1) so it was great looking at those pictures and dreaming of summer. Peggy from PA

  34. The pictures of the gardens are so beautiful. Yes, I can't wait, but it's a long time coming around here. So, I'll just continue living on my computer and passing the time away with my new found friends until winter is over. I loved the pictures, like a breath of fresh air!

  51. With the record foot of snow that has melted in my yard over the past 48 hours, my yard currently resembles a swamp (not to mention my kitchen floor thanks to my four legged family members) and these picture are a welcome mental escape! They are beautiful!
