Pink Saturday And A Garden Party

Hello Sweet Pink Saturday And Etsy Cottage Style peeps....I am joining both Beverly for PINK SATURDAY and Etsy Cottage Style for their Garden Party with pictures of members gardens this year....It was a slow spring because of the weather in so many different spots throughout the country, but now that summer is here there should be some fantasic flowers to admire...Do come and stroll through our gardens...

I have been showing some of my flowers through the year, but here are some new with some of the old pictures....I hope you enjoy them!

Landscape roses that are so hardy and just bloom and bloom! Love them!

Two different plants of Pinks....

One of my Hydrangea bushes. I purchased three about six or seven years ago...the instructions said they were for indoors only. Well, as you can see I put them out and they are huge and doing well! All three are this pretty pink, but I would love to have a blue one and will have to learn how to adjust the soil acidity to have one!

A little rose like Begonia...I just love this variety and have several.

Sweet Violets....of which I suddenly have way too many and they will have to be greatly thinned!!!!

Precious Bleeding Hearts

I have been enjoying thoroughly, each and every new bloom in the gardens as I know this season does not last nearly as long as I wish it could.....when the days are short, dark, snowy and cold

I will be thinking spring and summer and just waiting for Mother Nature to wake up all her beautiful works of art that are sleeping beneath the ground.

Happy Pink Saturday, Happy Gardening and Happy Summer!!!
Smiles :-)

It is delightful to see such beautiful florals, Jil. Ours are suffering terribly from this weather. Sniff, sniff! That purple rose I must know the name of, please.
Happy PS weekend ~

Hi Jil,
It's all so beautiful, my friend!!! And it is amazing what you have done--wow, you have lost a lot of weight. It's not easy...I sure know that! You are so lucky that you didn't have that much to lose...I wish I had been that fortunate...I still have 20 pounds to, it looks like we'll be doing it at the same fun!!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday Jil Sweetie..
Oh my what a wonderful time I have had strolling through your gorgeous gardens this evening. Love everything.

The roses are delightful, the hydrangeas colorful, and the bleeding hearts make my heart "HAPPY".

Just gorgeous sweet friend. Have a beautiful weekend. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

Char said...

Oh Jil,
you finally have your beautiful garden and flowers after such a long and cold winter. It all looks so lovely.
Sadly, I am all dried up. We had such a bad winter and everything died back to the ground. Usually now I have my pretty hybiscus to look at, but not this year. Everything is starting over.....
Bleeding hearts are such a gorgeous bloom, what a miracle of nature.
Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Sarah said...

Hi Jil! Your flowers are so beautiful! As I was scrolling through, I was making a mental note of my favorites so I could list them here but they just kept getting prettier and prettier and I lost track! :) I guess I love the hydrangeas and stargazer lily the best but they're all just so stunning! Thanks for visiting my blog today...I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Your gardens are a delight for the eyes. That lavendar rose is spectacular. The wooden cart really caught my eye-how gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by my Pink post today.

Ann said...

Thank you for stopping by my post today-that was a fun one to do. Your cottage blog is just beautiful. Your gardens are a delight for the eyes. The wooden cart stood out to me, love it. Our gardens have suffered in the midwest this year, hopefully next summer it will be lush too.

Jill, your gardens are amazing.We are in the midst of a terrible drought so I really enjoyed your beautiful pictures. Thanks for stopping by on Pink Saturday. I'll add your name to the hat for the drawing for the giftaway Pink Altered Book. Have a Pink Week from start to finish.

Robin said...

So very lovely....
Spring and summer is so worth the wait; and having the four seasons allows us to appreciate them all the more.
I for one always look forward to the next season, for i am a restless soul and I delight in the changing view in my garden. And come winter, after all the raking and bedding, I look forward to a little rest.
Thank you for sharing your flowers, and have a pinkishly beautiful weekend.

Hugs, Jeanne

Have a nice day!

Terry said...

I don't know that you can have that much beauty in a garden without the rest they need during Winter months! Beautiful Pink Saturday share!

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Jil,
What an amazing garden you have. Everything is gorgeous and lush. I know your area with the warm muggy weather is perfect for the garden. We are not so fortunate this season with triple digit heat.

Thank you for the anniversary wishes and good luck in my giveaway. Thank you also for adding my giveaway to your sidebar. You are so kind to do that my friend.

Love to you,
Celestina Marie

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Gorgeous pinks! I love them all, but wondering what the 4th flower is? And the rose looks like porcelain!

Blessings & Aloha!
...& I just wanted to say thank you so much for your kind comment of the art I do, on sweet LV's post.

Rebecca said...
