A Peek Into the Garden

Good morning sweet friends! How are you all?

Today I wanted to share a small part of our garden with you…this is just an area right off our back porch.

spring garden 2013-3

As you can see, the Spanish Lavender is in full bloom.

And I’m so excited that I found STOCK this year!! It’s one of my favorite spring/summer blooms of all…I always buy it at the grocery store when I find it. To me, it smells so divine.

I’ve been enjoying the sunshine and working in our garden.

Our herbs are really taking off lately also. The thyme is blooming right now.

And this “tangerine sage” has a gorgeous red bloom that the butterflies adore!

And here is a peek of our lilacs…gorgeous blooms and fragrance! I hope we can keep these alive here in the south…we’ll see!

And that’s a little tour of our spring garden…hopefully I can share more with you soon.

Today I’m so excited! We are expecting very special guests! Amy from All Things Home is coming to spend some time with our family…we have gotten very close over the last few years.  It’s going to be a sweet week with late night talks, stories over coffee, and cooking some delicious meals together.

Thanks so much for visiting here today!

Blessings

Well I would like to be where you are!! It's not safe to plant anything here until after May 1st. I do have some perennials coming up though. Yours are gorgeous for sure, your pics are so vivid I can almost smell them.

Goodness, your garden is beautiful! It sure is thriving. Between the lilacs and the stock it I'll bet it smells wonderful. Hope you have a great visit with Amy :)

Wow, beautiful! We woke up to 3 inches of fresh snow yesterday and it was 14 degrees this am.

Everything looks beautiful, Becky! I love the little ladder you have tucked back there!

Have a great time with Amy!

Oh, I'm so jealous, I haven't even uncovered my babies yet, it's been so cold here in Montana. My plum tree is so full of buds/blossoms, more than I have ever seen. . . so glad I cut some branches to force inside, the rest are froze and toast. . . I did enjoy the daffodils and hyacinth when it bloomed, but the weight of the snow broke them off. . . (:( sigh) beautiful photos, have fun with Amy and thanks for sharing. . .

Your lavender and sage are gorgeous and must smell heavenly. I am still waiting for our temps to go up before planting. Such a lovely garden!

Lovely garden you have there. All the blooms are so beautiful and I wish we could have lilacs in Florida.

Stacey Smith said...

Your blooms are lovely! I can't wait to get my garden finished.

Does the Tangerine Sage taste like their name?

How stunningly beautiful! I wish we could get some rain so that flowers would bloom. This is one of the first springs where I've seen so few wildflowers that Texas is supposed to be so famous for.

Amy Kinser said...

I AM HERE!!!!

Your garden is beautiful in person and in the photos!!

Geli said...

I too have been obsessed with Stock lately! I buy it everytime I see it at the grocery store. Your plants look beautiful! I'll have to keep my eye out for some of those this spring. Thanks for the inspiration!

I'm green with envy over your pretty blooms. Here in Minnesota were just hoping spring will arrive soon and all this snow will go away.

Faded Charm said...

Looks like Spring is alive and blooming in your neck of the woods. Everything looks beautiful! I, too, love the way stock smells and buy blooms whenever I can find them and I also just bought some Spanish lavender. I have never tried this variety, so I hope it survives for me.

Enjoy your week with Amy and her family.....lucky girls!

Oh, oooooh, oh !! Becky i am going out into m'y porch garden to rip it out after my visit with you here. It's absolutely breathtaking. Love the ladder up against the wall adding beauty of grey's to your garden.

I am so inspired by your touches of this and that's here and there, everything you create is of grace and beauty, new and old, salvage and recreate. Such an inspiration to what can be done with the love of rustic and all things romantic.

A beautifully inspiring weekend to you.
