~~Mimi's Flower Garden~~

April was such a busy month for our family...birthdays, baptism and our anniversary...I will post some pictures of that later....

We also have been working in our flower garden...It has been so beautiful here and here are some of the plants we have growing and how they are bursting with colors....I love this time of year!!!!

I love foxglove and also the mix of lavender, stock and the delicate white geranium

This beautiful red "Lily of the Nile" is bursting out in the was one of a few bulbs my mother brought with her when she moved from our family home and gave to me...It usually always blooms right around her birthday, which is special.
The next barrel of beauty is spanish primrose which I just threw in this barrel last will be in full bloom for most of the summer.
Then my lovely pink jasmine decided to really "flower" out for me this year and the fragrance is wonderful....this is just one side of it, you can see all the buds on the right just about ready to pop!
The last barrel is full this year with pink and white ruffled geranium...the colors are beautiful.

Our little flower garden area has brought me so much joy and I love to look at it.
We have another area with yellow honeysuckle and star jasmine....all the fragrances mingled together are wonderful!!!~~hope you enjoy!


  1. Hi Mary!

    Thank you so much for your visit!!
    Your gardens are breathtaking and you have have quite a green thumb!
    I love foxglove but in our area we have to use them as annuals because they never come back from the winter freeze. Yours are breathtaking!
    More garden pics please :-))
    Enjoy a nice weekend!
