A Garden Update, May 14th

Welcome, dear friend! Please come in... A touch of Spring on the deck...
My new awning, a new place for my fountain, and daylilies, not quite in bloom...

Before photo of the bed beside my stairs (UHG!!)...
And after! Boxwoods and roses all the way, baby!!
A close up of the Jackson & Perkins rose from Diana...
Before photo of the corner garden. Still digging up the sod in this pic!
And after! Three Queen Elizabeth roses and the clematis is just starting to climb the trellis. Next to the downspout is a canna. It is just coming up. I'll have to take another picture later in the season.
A makeover for the wire planter that used to hang under my old garage window by the hot tub. Much improved, wouldn't you say?
These are a couple of things I picked up while my mom was here. They came from our favorite store, Harmony Home. It's a babytear topiary and cast iron birdie.
And last, but not least, a shot of a very happy birthday girl! She loves her new pink kitty named "Goldie"!
Have a blessed weekend! Miss you every day!
Love and hugs,
Victoria Lynn

Hi Victoria:
I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden your blog appeared on my list again. I've sure missed seeing all your posts.
Your home is really nice, and the flowers are so pretty.
