Garden Stroll

Hello, are you ready for a stroll along the garden path?
It's a lovely spring day.
The sounds of water trickling in the fountain permeates the garden.
The bees are busy.
Gerber daisies add splashes of vibrant color.
Water puddles in this azalea bloom.
Their wavy petals add frills to the garden.
Nature's bouquet of springtime bliss.
Palm fronds in the distance create a backdrop for the speckled azalea blooms.
This lovely lady greets all who walk along the garden path.
Lavender scents the air.
A feeder welcomes hungry birds.
Hmmm...this feeder looks a bit empty. I wonder why as it was just filled.
I think I see the guilty culprit.
Look at him saying 'who me?' like it isn't obvious!
Delicate flowers add color to the garden shed window boxes
Thanks so much for strolling in the garden with me.
I think we should go inside for a glass of wine and take a look at the new Victorian Trading catalog that arrived in the mail today:).

Would be great to come and have a glass of wine with you.

Have a happy week

The squirrel looks as though he is doing a dance of joy with his full belly...

Hi sweet Kim,

I loved the garden stroll! You have such a beautiful garden!!! All of the flowers are so beautiful, and I love the fountain and the statues… gorgeous! The squirrel is so cute, though they are bad about emptying the bird feeders! Pearl and Poppy love to chase them! I would love to come in, have a glass of wine with you and look through the lovely catalog! Much love, Paula

P.S. Your photos are so beautiful, as always!

Kim, do you know that I'm living through your garden. I am along way off from blooms in mine, so I think I will just stay here with you and enjoy your beautiful surroundings. Everything is so beautiful and the roses in your previous post make my heart beat so fast, that I think I may have to lay down for awhile.
Thank you for satisfying my need for beauty this morning.

Hi Kim, Just lovely. We are still waiting for Spring here in Southern Ontario. It is getting there, but not many flowers yet.

Luv the red daisy! Karen

Hi Kim-

Such wonderful pictures! Your fountain is so beautiful. I really loved your shots, especially the bee on the azalea, the squirrel, the azalea with the palm fronds in the background, and the beautiful garden lady with flowers in the foreground and background. Nice compositions!

Speaking of the Victorian Trading Co. catalog, mine arrived yesterday, too, and I placed a BIG order. I LOVE that company! :D

Kim, what a truly DELIGHTGFUL stroll in that garden...it is that time of year to enjoy it...as later here in the SOUTH it will be way to hot and humid to do that.
