Weekend Garden

With all the rain we've been having,
my garden is so happy and growing wildly.

This weekend finds me trimming, grooming and tending to the blooms.

The cooler days of spring have become the hot days of a Texas summer.
Now the flowers, vines and trees are growing larger and taking on a vintage look.

Come along on a little stroll with me as I walk around the garden.

Mr. Frog sunning on the bike seat.

Taking time to enjoy God's garden blessings.
Do you remember when I planted this potato vine?

It has grown to the top of the trellis and on the way back down
ready to turn and make it's way up the trellis again.

Love the pop of green.

Just around the bend, long stem roses blooming beautifully.

This year Daisies are giving a pretty show.

Pink Cone flowers greet just around a curve in the walk.

Something different from Begonias beginning to trail on the fence. 

Sweet bunny family, are my keepers of the Lavender patch.

Nest among the Rose Moss.

Mixing it up with sun loving blooms.

Little fairies kneeling among the Confetti flowers.

Ah a pink bird stopping to smell the flowers~

Purple beauty
Trumpet vine blooming and bringing sweet hummers.

A small Hydrangea patch bringing  large blooms this season.

More Confetti flowers loving the sunshine.

This sweet angel is a solar light and so pretty when the sun goes down.

Vintage pink Begonias
sit pretty on and under a lit birdbath turned table
filled with shells and topped with glass.

Thank you for taking a walk with me.
Along the way, I picked up a fallen and dried Southern Magnolia leaf.
Perfect surface to paint our beloved flag.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Good Morning, Celeste. I enjoyed the garden stroll. I will be happy when my plants grow and fill in like yours. The roses you have shared are gorgeous. I think my favorite accessory is your angel. That is very unique and I imagine it is a real conversation piece. Wishing you a blessed weekend.

Ooooohhh, lovely garden! Love the pink bird, the angel and all of the pretty flowers. I have to get outside sometime today (before more storms enter our area) and get photos of my Hydrangeas and a few other things!

Have a wonderful weekend,
Jan ♥

What a lovely garden, Celeste! Your Confetti flowers are stunning! I adore your fairy and bird on a nest. Only you could turn a Magnolia leaf into a piece of art; your flag is fabulous! God bless America! It looks like He has already blessed your garden! Have a wonderful weekend!

Ohh! You are inspiring me as I go out to tend to my garden before the storm comes this afternoon! How I love your little bunny family, and as we have our own real rabbits to guard our place, I enjoy watching them and the squirrels who sit up on a bench we put up in the tree!

Lovely garden my friend! Anita

Valerie-Jael said...

It looks so beautiful, and you have inspired to me to make a start on my balcony, which has been looking like a catastrophe zone! Hugs, Valerie

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It all looks so lush and beautiful, Celeste! Most of mine are doing well, but a couple of others are not. I will have to do an update to a couple of pots before it gets too much later in the season, and I don't want to spend the money. : )

Celeste, thank you so much for allowing me to meander through your lovely garden. It's perfect...just the right amount of cute little knick knacks, so that the beauty of God's creation still shines through.

Those bunnies are adorable!

Blessings on your day.

Betty said...

Your garden looks so lovely and I adore the red bike and the faeries. My garden is being neglected so far this year because of the kitchen.

Donna said...

I loved joining you for your garden tour, Celestina! Your flowers are all so pretty, and I love the special accents you've tucked in here and there, too! The bike is so cute, and even more fun with Mr. Frog! And I love your arbor with the trumpet vine, it looks like it's doing great there! I always grow sweet potato vine too each year, and love how it likes to trail. Your bunnies are sweet, too! You sure do have a green thumb:)

Your flower gardens are so pretty!!
I have a Hydrangea that was giving to me by my daughter right before my granddaughter was born 14 years ago. It got huge this year, but no blooms on it yet. I've had a couple of years that it just hasn't bloom.
Hope you have a great Sunday.

Nancy said...

Celeste your Garden is Gorgeous! So beautiful just to sit and admire Natures Blooms from all your Hard work, but it is so worth it don't you think? I do~
I hope your having a Great week end!!

Huggs, Nancy

Our drought is definitely taking a toll on the garden this year - 3 years in a row.
