Take a Walk in My Garden

Welcome to my garden party!


I have some snacks so help yourselves to the goodies.








Take a walk in the garden and breathe in the fragrance of the peonies. The roses have just started to bloom this week for your visit. They are old-fashioned roses and have a beautiful aroma that hints at romance. The irises are finishing their work for the year but soon they will be replaced with daylilies.

Enjoy your time in my garden and may you take a piece of nature'
s beauty with you throughout the rest of your week. *Lora asked and the answer is yes, these are all in my garden.

Your garden is BEAUTIFUL !!

I'll skip the cakes but possibly accept a low fat sarnie and fruit juice -- it all looks so lovely!

Thanks for the idea, an online cyber garden party!

Best wishes,
Sharon

Are all of these flowers in your yard?! How beautiful...I could almost smell them! (and the lemonade looked good too!)

Thanks for sharing!

Pattie said...

Ah, the peonies smell wonderful, and the clematis is gorgoeus. And you look lovely, m'dear, in your tea party attire, with that darling hat. You're such a charming hostess! ;-)

The garden is beautiful. What are the point values on the goodies? Want to split one of those yummy cake looking thingies?

Beautiful, Manuela! I enjoyed my tour very much! I garden in Zone 3 and my earliest peonies are just starting to open.

Thanks for inviting me to your garden party. It is so lovely and serene in your beautiful garden.

I can't wait to get up to VT this weekend to see what has bloomed since I was there last.

Please don't be offended I didn't eat any of the treats - I'm trying to stay away from that stuff but it does looks delicious. I'll take a little vodka to add to that lemonade though ... mmmmm.

Your garden is BEAUTIFUL! It's one of the things I miss most about owning my own home. I LOVE irises... and roses, and lilacs, and clematis and peonies and tulips...

right now we've just started putting some things in the front yard. Hopefully we can whip it into shape for next year.

What an amazing garden you have! I love that a bunny came to party too. :) I can not even keep a house plant alive so I am sitting here in awe ... truly spectacular. Thanks for having us all over.!

Oh I had a lovely time! What a beautiful garden you have. You must show us your green thumbs.

The irises are gorgeous and what a lucky bunny to be hanging out in your wonderful garden.

When you invited me earlier in the week to your garden party - I went "Eureka!". And thanks to you, my daughter's birthday party is using the garden theme.

Nicole said...

Lovely, absolutely gorgeous!! I had a fantastic time; thanks so much for thinking of me. Can I take a few of the cakes home for the family?

Wow--I think you need to give some gardening tips on here once in a while, my friend! Oh..how nice. It must smell amazing in your yard. Do you just want to sit out there ALL day?? Well done! I am impressed and inspired!
