Patty's Flower Garden


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. :)

Your flowers are just gorgeous!! I always try to grow roses, but never have much luck. We have alot of bugs in PA and they love my roses, but my hydrangrea are doing great this year! Happy Sunday!

Hi Patty,
Thank you so much for sharing your GORGEOUS flowers... You swam to have the perfect weather for them to grow so beautiful...My Rose's look bad as soon as they bloom, black spots and I've used miracle grow on them. I water my flowers every night that we dont get rain because of the heat.... Yours flowers are gorgeous. Have a great day

I have been missing seeing your beautiful garden - thank you for sharing!! I am super jealous. I love flowers, and even if I could plant such gorgeous things here, the resident deer would make sure it would never look half as good as yours because it would be their personal buffet line. So I have to live vicariously through yours! :)


Thank you for sharing your gorgeous flowers with us. What brilliant colors and a wonderful variety!

Pam S.

Your flower garden is beautiful, love seeing the pictures! I can’t grow a thing!


Beautiful! These are great color inspiration photos!


Oh, my, Patty, sometimes there are just no words to express something as beautiful as your lovely
flowers. Just fantastic, and that does not even begin to cover it. Have a wonderful week ahead.
Thanks for sharing. I love, love flowers.

Best wishes,

Loralee Parish

I am still in a lovely botanical trance after viewing your award winning (they MUST be) flowers. I live "just down the street" from you in San Jose and am now motivated to get MY garden in order.
Thanks for sharing,

Glenda J

What a beautiful garden - just looking at your beautiful pictures made me happy! Thanks for sharing since I can't grow most of those flowers in hot Arizona.


You Bay Area rose lovers might consider checking out the antique roses at Roses of Yesterday and Today in Corralitos, between Aptos and Watsonville in Santa Cruz County. Stop at the Corralitos market on the way back for some of their famous sausages, Santa Cruz County wines, olive oils and Gizdich Ranch pies.


I enjoyed your flower garden tour. Lots of beautiful inspiration!

Margaret Spencer

Breath taking!

What a beautiful garden so full of beautiful flowers. Thank you for sharing these photos.


You have gorgeous flowers, thanks so much for sharing.

Dana M

Wow, gorgeous! We moved last year and I've built up a couple of border gardens. But primarily relying on pots for color. Ah, someday I hope to have half the gorgeous gardens you do.

Debra Speijers

Oh Patty, you have the most beautiful garden! I am so jealous, it is a credit to you, thank you for sharing it with us.

So beautiful!

Jeanne Moss

Thanks for sharing pictures of your flower garden. All of the flowers are beautiful, but that Gemini Rose is spectacular!!

Joan Norris

OMG Patty!!! I would never get anything done if I had a garden like that!!! I would be sitting in the garden all day long, imprinting the beauty into my brain!!! So beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

Cheri B.

Patty, your flower gardens are oh soooo beautiful!! I would love to see the whole flower gardens at a wider view. They look picture perfect!! You need to bring your green thumb to my house!!! Thank you for sharing. Enjoy them.


Just beautiful, Patty. Thanks for sharing!


Your flowers are simply amazing! I love seeing them. Thank you for sharing your garden with us!


Thank you for showing us your flower garden. You have the most beautiful flowers. Speaking as soneone who has a very black thumb ( almost killed my rhubarb twice!) i really enjoy seeing all the flowers. I live in a semi arid climate, so the colours of summer aren’t as plentiful!
