~~Evening Garden Tours & Much Needed Rain~~

Rain has been a rare thing here in north Texas the last couple of years but this spring we have had an abundance of it which has done amazing things for our gardens. We have so much blooming now & just about every evening we take a "garden tour" ~ anxious to find every new bloom & taking time to enjoy them. This is the first year my pink "Fairy" Rose has fully bloomed & I'm hoping she climbs that arbor fast this summer. "Isabelle" peeks from underneath the purple Larkspur & a pink rose & "Abbey" stands guard beside a red rose. Our Texas shed which we call the "Alamo" was a smokehouse when it was built in 1891. After taking the picture of the pond a couple of days ago I have had to pull out 3/4 of the water plants - they have overgrown the surface so much that we could barely see the water or fish. Thunder earlier this morning & more rain expected the rest of the week.......I'm loving it!

Kathy, now you are teasing me...those roses are just beautiful! You already know I want your house, now the flowers...just beautiful!
PS...I collect snowglobes you know...I was so happy to win yours!

The pink fairy rose is so sweet! Luv how you painted your shed. You have chickens! I was thinking about getting chickens, then people told me ducks are easier (plus duck eggs are more nutritious). I haven't decided yet what to do. I really want to live on a farm I think. I'd like to have goats too!

Have a great weekend!
