Flowers by the Driveway

I usually show the backyard but let me show the left side of the yard. This is the driveway.


I love the pink roses that are blooming.
 I hang these planters on the iron fence/
 Love that Japanese maple tree.

 These lilies should be blooming pretty soon.
 I just started planting herbs and vegetables.



 Back to the fence, a really rusted basket.
Thanks all for stopping by. I always enjoy and appreciate your visits!

I wanted to show you my big surprise yesterday. I won some delicious fudge on Sarah's blog, Hope in Every Season, and they arrived yesterday. Thanks Sarah, they are delicious and they could not have come at a better timing.

 As you can see, we had a small swimming party yesterday since my granddaughter is vacationing here for her spring break, and I served them so that everybody aside from us could enjoy their deliciousness. Thanks again!

Truly, the roses are glorious and I love your containers. I also enjoyed seeing your raised beds. We garden with raised beds as well. Have a Happy Easter, Christine!

Those Petunias in the basket provide a wonderful soft contrast to the bold black of the fencing. You seem to have a good-sized garden. Thanks for sharing your world and for visiting my blog Christine. Happy Easter weekend.

I love your drive away as much as your gorgeous back yard Christine...than again, I love your glorious grounds and gardens and your home interiors. Very Lovely! Loving the fudge, I'd love a piece. Sorry I didn't see this before, I've had hubby in bed sick with a cold since last Thursday and he's still sick, so tomorrow we'll head to the Dr's office. Hope you had a wonderful EASTER.
