Mini Rose Bouquets and Going Into Garden Week 7

A lot to share with you again. So here I go.




I enjoy making small bouquets for the house.  

The mini white roses are "pillow fight".  It is a boarder rose that has beautiful white clusters.

A few larkspurs tucked here and there.





What the clusters look like in full bloom on the bush.

Another sweet rose is my  sweet "confection JA cute"   It has tiny pink clusters.  It is right next to my "pillow fight".







A mini bouquet of   "Confection JA cute", pink larkspurs and a sprig of forget-me-nots.

Here is what the bush looks like.
I also have one in a container.
She is not a mini rose but Ms. "Gina Lollobrigida" can make a nice arrangement on her own.




My container roses are all in bloom. My patio has some beautiful color right now.

The repotting that Hubby and I did last year really paid off.

My oldest Girl.  I do not know Her name. But I call her "Ms. Coral".










 In the Rose and Vegetable area.

Yellow patty pans are looking good.
 Ms. "Yves Piaget" is looking lovely as ever.


 My patch of larkspurs. I'm trying to keep on top of the dead-heading so they will continue to grow a bit longer.  They started blooming in February.

 Yellow squash but the tag on the container said green.  Not complaining.
 A cluster of "Juliet's"

 Celebrity tomatoes.
 All is looking good.





 More photo of my Yves Paget.





 And the seedlings are coming along with all this nice warm weather.  I have some container sunflowers, butternut squash, cosmos and a few more cucumbers.

I hope your gardens are doing well.
Thank you for visiting me and have a great day and have a beautiful Easter too.
Praise the Lord!

Random Act Of Kindness

I want to share some beautiful items that I received last weekend.
There is so much to share and the photos do not do them justice.


 It came from a wonderful crafter who shares her amazing projects through her blog "Uniquely Ella"   and also on her Youtube channel 4umarlene1 .  She also share her garden too.

 Below is a beautiful mahjong  piece.  On her blog and Youtube channel you can see them along with her altered dominos too.
 A bag filled with beautiful colored stringed beads. Love the colors.
My next garden journal.  The images are great. Marlene is also sharing some of her beautiful paper napkins for altering.  I have seen on Pintrest so many things I would love to alter using napkins.

I hope you will visit Marlene's blog and youtube channel.  She is an amazing crafter in mix media, projects using laces, ATC's and so much more. I have learned a lot about mix media and also how to use items I have never thought of using.

Thank you for stopping by and also once again Marlene, Thank you!

Blessings!
