Flowers to Come

I mentioned in my previous post that my gardens are doing well with all of this rain.
  I thought I would show you some of the beauty that will be here in the next couple of weeks.

I am so looking forward to the blooms that are yet to come.

When Mr. M. and I started planting our gardens the year after we built it, I insisted on Bridal Wreath Spirea, one, because I love the white flowers and two, it would help make our house look less like a newly built home.  They are around the whole hose and I have never regretted planting so many.   I even put them in my other gardens I love them so. 
 In a couple of weeks my house will be surrounded in white. 

There is a seat in every garden, to sit and enjoy the view.

Roses, roses everywhere!

The bird houses are usually covered in climbing roses or vines by the middle of summer.

If you enjoyed my gardens you should stop by and visit Tracie from Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursdays.


Cindy from My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

Thank you for visiting, I am off to work in the gardens, a gardener's work is never done.
