One of the most frequent subjects I get asked to blog about is my garden... it's in full bloom right now and I thought I'd share a few photos I've taken this month! I love my garden.. I inherited that from my mom I think. It gives me peace and reminds me of all the beauty God has created in our world. I love all the color and the beauty in the mix of all the flowers. I grow roses, alstromeria, geraniums and hydrangea with some success. This year my Bougainvillea finally bloomed, which was nice, and now I'm waiting for my trumpet vine to come into bloom!!

For those who don't know, we live in the San Francisco Bay Area about 1 mile from the bay, so I do think that the perfect mix of fog, cool, rain, warm, sun and heat are really what help my flowers grow. I feed them once a month, water them a few times a week, and talk to them often. :)

I hope you enjoyed that!!
We'll get back to stampin' stuff tomorrow. :)
