TODAYS FLOWERS ~ 3

This is what is blooming in my garden to-day in yellow,

with a little purple for contrast.

Pansies, though a little nibbled at, have such friendly faces


a fly basks on the Iris, a bee would have been nicer

the Powlonia, a fast growing tree, is just
starting to bloom

'Sutter's Gold' a Rose well worth having both
for scent and garden display

Climbing 'Gold Bunny' on the fence, blooms
continuously from early spring until pruning time

a little contrast in colour, a happy couple of Pansies

lastly, a scented Broom with a glimpse of morning
mist towards the Wild Wood

  2. Glorious blooms, Arija! And just when the frost has extinguished ours. The powlonia is stunning!

    I ordered your book suggestion from my library system and I am
    147th on the waiting list! I might just have to order is from Amazon.

  8. Lovely to see those flowers arija when our flowers are just beginning to die away. A very cold spell is forecast for this week here, so any last flowers will go and winter will really be here.

  27. Arija: What a wonderful collection of beautiful flowers.

  28. Arija you have a wonderful spring display. I love pansies, their little faces and their lovely scent. My last yellow rose just snuffed it. Yours are gorgous. I have to get a new one.
    Have you been to open gardens. Here they are open now and the ones I have see were very different but each one was great. I always get inspired.

  30. Beautiful flowers! I especially like the pansies - I think Mom and Dad planted them every where they lived. Thanks for commenting on my sky watch and yes that is a water tower in the sunset.

  31. Arija, the scent of the lilies filled all our three rooms! We had to close the bedroom door to be able to sleep!
    I am fine, thank you, I only had little time for blogging lately because I started a rather time-comsuming diet where I have to cook all my meals by myself. I gained 20 pounds during the last 5 months after quitting smoking.
    Chocolate replaced the nicotine pleasures for some time :)

  37. Great photos! Thanks for visiting my blog: I totally believe in treating myself to flowers. Who else will if I don't?

  38. Now I see why you asked about the name of the rose I had today and its scent . . . you have such a beautiful place! I am not a gardener, just a retired lady with a digital camera who loves to walk and I find such beauties in my neighborhood and others. I don't feel I need to know the name of them to enjoy. Sometimes, others help me to identify them. I have allergies so I don't usually try to smell them.

    I earmarked your site and shall return another day to browse. Thanks for coming by mine.
