laughter and talk of beautiful futures

sunshine and rain conspire

nature and nurture expressing together

all of our hearts’ desire









This is happening now in my garden. I had to share it.

  1. Thanks for brightening this rainy day, with so much color and joie!

  2. Oh My garden is so much closer to death right now… a carpet of leaves and flower wilting.

    1. HonieBriggs says:

      Not death, just a much deserved sleep.

  3. Helen Ross says:

    Hi Honie. I remember the first pics you shared when plotting out your new garden. Now from your imagination your creativity has come to life. Wow! The flowers are beautiful as are the photos. No wonder it gives you pleasure seeing and smelling what little surprises there are each day.

    1. HonieBriggs says:

      Hi Helen,
      It seems like such a long time since we installed the beds now overflowing with blooms. Thanks for sharing the journey since then.

    OMG….Honie those flowers are superb! And the pics are pretty good too. 😉

    1. HonieBriggs says:

      It’s a pleasure to start every day walking my little bit of earth, discovering it’s sweet surprises. The Tea Olive tree is in bloom. Its fragrance is intoxicating.

      1. acflory says:

        We’re just heading into that time of the year. I only have a few roses so far but more blooms are coming. Can hardly wait!

        1. HonieBriggs says:

          When our season is falling, yours is springing. I would love to visit there someday. Preferably not during fire season though.

          1. acflory says:

            -grin- If you ever make it across, make it during autumn, our autumn that is. Cake and coffee guaranteed!

  5. Allan G. Smorra says:

    The light coming through the leaves of the daisies in your first photo is beautiful. A gentle reminder of their fragility.

    1. HonieBriggs says:

      This is the first year I’ve had these Country Girl Mums, a gift from a gardening friend. I love them.

      1. Allan G. Smorra says:

        Mums. I stand corrected. They are a beautiful gift from a beautiful friend.

  6. Sandi says:

    Beautiful! I am so jealous!

    1. HonieBriggs says:

      Your beautiful garden is probably putting on a show now too.

Go Ahead, Make My Day!
