  1. So many beautiful flowers!
    I have never even heard of lion’s ear, rose of Sharon or foxglove!
    Certainly eye-opening!


    • Your summers will be bursting with blooms though won’t they? We will be heading your way next spring, late April, and I hope to see some blooming then, even if not, it is so beautiful I can’t wait!!!


  2. I’m really envious: you’ve got all this beauty, and it’s obviously warm! I should really consider moving to places with more sun! You photos are fantastic!


  3. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful and makes me yearn for the warmth of the sunshine instead of our usual rain and gloom.
