    After a long dreary winter (to me) it seems Spring has finally arrived, thank goodness. Today my sweet husband picked sweet peas for me that my nice neighbor planted at the corner of my garage. I was once an avid gardener, but age and a few glitches keep me from being active. So, I want to share my sweet pea bouquet that made my house smell like a garden. And show you a wild corner at the front of my house. Thanks for looking. I love flowers!!! :thumbup: :P

    I love pretty flowers...have you ever seen an ugly one? We are in such need of rain in my part of Texas. If I knew what kind of rain dance would only bring 2 or 4 inches I would be doing it everyday. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for showing the pretty flower pictures. I can't have a garden where I live so I get great joy out of seeing what others have.

    And they are GIGANTIC! I couldn't believe it when I visited there - I wanted to stay for both the salmon and the big bouquets for cheeps :-)

    The sweetpeas are so pretty. You just reminded me that I have seeds from my neighbor. Now just where did I put them?

    Could you have big pots set out? It is so easy to garden and plant a few things in pots.

    Thanks to all who enjoyed my flowers. I was happy to share. Sweet peas are planted on Labor Day or in September while it is warm enough to germinate. They sprout, come up and then sit there all winter, just waiting for the warm sunshine to tell them to grow and bloom. Then~~~ watch out. They are a favorite of mine, and they do smell heavenly!
    Bless all of you. Roberta

    Love the flowers. Mine have been blooming a few at a time. I am used to having them in abundance, but not so much this year. Wish the weather would make up its mind and be Spring!

    I just got back from driving to the bank & I noticed there were soooooo many beautiful flowers in everyone's yards. It is wonderful to have some sunshine for a change!

    Getting lots of clouds today and not as warm as yesterday. Is there a storm coming our way?
