Spring Has Sprung....A Happy Day

INSPIRATION FOR SPRING

Don't know how I did it but click to enlarge



A look off my Back Patio





Its a glorious day here in California and everything is beginning to Bloom. I planted Snapdragons last year and low and behold when they all seemed to die in the winter they dropped their seeds and now they are comming in more gorgeous then ever, So I thought I'd share with you some pictures for inspiration since those of you back east are still waiting for your spring.

Cheryl,
Thanks for stopping by. I am so jealous you only live one hour away from my beautiful La Jolla!!! We lived there for 20 years off and on and I miss it!!! Our best friends live in Laguna Niguel...is that anywhere near you? Your garden was such an inspiration I bought some topiaries today. I hope they will stay as beautiful as yours!!! Have a great day!!!
XOXO
Cathy

Hi Cheryl,
I too am in California and I'm loving the weather. My garden hasn't come quite that far yet though, your garden is beautiful. I would love to have an all white garden, but somehow new things come up every year and I can't bear to pull them up. Love the vintage pieces.

Cheryl,
Thanks for sharing your Fabulous yard. I have spring fever sooo bad and here in Utah we are still getting snow.
Right now it is raining but yesterday it snowed. We are hoping for better weather soon but for now I am enjoying seeing your beautiful yard.
Thanks for posting,
Denise

Hey Girlfriend! Leave it to you to grow the biggest most gorgeous "white" snapdragons I have ever laid eyes on ... YOur sprawling garden and patio filled with 2 die 4 cement and iron treasures is amazing and even though these pictures are fablulous only seeing it with your own eyes and smelling with your own nose could do it justice!! I'm insprired ...I think I'll go out and water my pots!

Cheryl, I would never get anything done if my patio looked like yours. What a beautiful place to spend lots of time daydreaming about future treasures to find.
Have a wonderful day,
