De Mon Jardin

From My Garden...
Now, we are not Gardeners, my Husband and I.
We forget to water.
We rarely weed. 
But somehow...the flowers keep growing.
And we keep enjoying them. Year, after Year.
Hopefully, you'll enjoy them too...
Our Roses, which have begun to bloom in four colors, pink, yellow, violet, and red. (yellow and pink shown)



Tulips brought inside to grace the pretty Mercury Bottle.



 Our Wisteria which hangs atop the Gazebo


 And a couple of our potted plants, this one sits beside the
Grapevines, I have a vintage Trellis I'm painting to sit inside the pot so they'll vine upwards.

 And our pretty potted Geraniums, in my favorite color.
 Thank you for all the kind comments on my last post, your sweet words touched my heart.  I'll be back very soon with a special giveaway. xxx tami

    You and your husband are definitely doing something right!! Your flowers are beautiful. I love the colors of your roses and I am hoping that my wisteria will look as pretty as yours this year! Keep up the neglect!

  15. Oh, my! Those are beautiful!

    The roses!

    But that wisteria is downright gorgeous! I don't know if we can even grow that in SD!?!

    There has been snow and a couple days in the 30s this week, so I really, really enjoyed your flowers!!!

  16. So lovely roses!!! I must wait for several months until mine are blooming... I love the wisteria: we can´t grow it here because of the cold winter.

    Have a happy easter!

  22. I don't know, but judging from the photos you posted, you and your husband are great gardeners! Love that you have a wisteria vine that's showy too.

    Happy Cottage Flora Thursdays and Happy Easter!

  30. Hi Tami! You must have some sort of green thumb, girl! Wisteria can be very finicky from what I've heard! lol! Your roses are so pretty - and such a breath of spring! Have a blessed Easter!

  33. Thanks so much for the sweet comment about the hutch. Love your flowers. I am a huge fan of flower photos. I usually post them on my other blog Treasured Moments Photos by Tracy. Unfortunately, I don't have gorgeous ones in my own yard like you do. Love them.

  34. I love home grown colorful flowers. I try, but I have so much shade in my yard, it's difficult to grow "flowers". Plants are pretty easy for me though.
    thanks for stopping by!

  36. What a delightful garden you have, Tami! Your roses are especially gorgeous. I'm so happy to have the wisteria blooming now in NC--that perfume in the air is something I'm grateful for. :)

  37. Wonderful roses and I really really LOVE your wisteria. I would so much to have wisteria also but I don't think it would survive Finland's long cold winter and that is a shame cause it one of the most beautiful plant I know.
    Enjoy your blooming garden:)

  39. Tami,

    What gorgeous flowers! Not gardeners? I don't believe a word of it! I consider myself an ok person with dirt and plants and I cannot, for the life of me, keep Geraniums alive.

    Everything you photographed is so beautiful. I think I can smell those roses. Wow!

  46. Hi sweet pea,

    Just wanted to say that I thought of you when I was watching the Royal Wedding. Wouldn't it have been lovely to watch it together? That would have been fab!!! The atmosphere here was brilliant. Aaah, a lovely day!

  47. Our roses *still* haven't started to bloom so you must be waaaay ahead of England. The buds are swelling so I know it won't be long now. So exciting!!!
