....My Garden of Eden.....

YAYYYY!! A bit of rain and sunshine and the garden breathes a sigh of relief. Running several businesses doesn't give me much time for gardening but I love getting out there when I can....


With this in mind I took an early morning ramble, camera in hand around the garden.

The pictures pretty much speak for themselves....


Fragile "Cistus" Rock Roses whose petals resemble pink parchment.......



The fragrance of lavender....EVERYWHERE!!!




Terraces of olive trees, lavender, and Carpet Roses, yet to bloom......


Rockeries of Iris and Carpet Roses, Wisteria and Lilacs.....



David Austin English Roses are my Passion........
The beautiful "Mary Rose"whose blooms were so heavy
I had to hold one for the photo.....


The fragrant "Charles Austin"...........




"Abraham Darby" - gorgeous blooms, perfect fragrance.....


The clear pink of the Old-Fashioned Climber, "Zephirine Drouhin"......

I just wish you could enjoy the fragrance and bird song that accompanied my walk.......the garden after rain is a wondrous place to be......

Have a Lovely Day,

Sue
