Your garden is absolutely beautiful.:D Did you help with the
selections of what to plant? It's just lovely.

What a beautiful garden! Unfortunately, I have black thumbs, so my yard looks nowhere near as nice. I'm with kimboe, I can't even get my grass to look right! (although Roscoe's 'watering' of the grass doesn't help much;) )

Yes!! One of our favorite things to do, is going to a gardencenter! First we look at home where we can put some more plants. Then we go to the gardencenter and look around. We always look at the colour, the height, the flowering season of each plant we buy. It is so much fun! As soon as we get home, we put everything on the lawn. Then we try out different positions. Once the decision is made, all the work is for Bernard. He loves working in his garden. It takes his mind of his work; it is his way to relax. I don't mind, he he, because the result is a beautiful garden!!:) The cats love it when pawpie is working outside, and help making difficult decisions.Maya always takes care of the furtilising ;)

Those pics are spectacular as always!! Are those pink ones hydrangeas? That's what they look like(I believe it was the first photo). I also think I see an oak leaf hydrangea in the second post. Your garden is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. You and hubby must be thrilled over it's beauty. Thanks so much for sharing. Maya and Inka are gorgeous too of course.

Terry, Daisy and Delilah:)

Wow! Wow! Wow! Lut your garden is superb! Of course I have seen it by myself, so I knew it, but the pictures are very nice!

Maya and Inka are fitting perfectly in it, very nice colors surrounding the Princesses's garden!

Congratulations to Bernard too! You did not show any pictures of the fishes?? May be you did it in another post before...

:) :) :)
