The Garden is doing well even though it has been very dry. Last night the rain started and still continues, no watering for a while !!

I like your gardens; they are beautiful. Yes, it has been hot and dry here too but like yours, the gardens are still doing well.

Love every single plant and blooms in your gardens.

Well done.

Your plants and trees are lovely Clara.
How long have you been there now?
Certainly the rain is very welcome, but I wonder why we always get such a downpour when the peonies are blooming! :((

"Purple Iris, got it from a friend."

Just brought a slightly twisted thought to my mind. So...

Hands up everybody in here who didn't get their first Purple Iris from a friend. *Mine are sittin' firmly on my desk! lol*

Love yr Willow! *big grin*

Thanks Brenda, we are here 8 yrs. now . Started building the house in Feb. moved the long weekend in May 2004. The house was not finished when we moved in but liveable.

My Peonies are just beginning to show colour and not all have a cage so they are flopped,,,,:-( Oh well, we don't have to do any watering for a few days.
