In the Garden of Earthly Delights.......

About this time of year we're all wishing for some greenery, flowers and warm breezes. At least that's how it is here in Idaho, so I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of some beautiful gardens.

Just imagine walking with a loved one beneath this allèe..........

Or sitting in this beautiful garden of roses in a sunny part of France..........

Or meandering down this azalea strewn path with a child and showing him or her the delights of a "secret place"..........

Or picking the sunflowers growing on the side of this old weathered barn..........

Or leisurely floating in a row boat on this beautiful lake..........

Or playing hide-and-seek with your hubby or sweetheart in this park..........

Or passing a few private moments on this old park bench while gazing at those lovely pink rhododendrons..........

Or watching birds flitter about in this bird bath while listening to the tinkle of water while maybe even floating a tiny boat in it..........

Or walking down this pansy strewn path in the shade of the trees with hostas growing underneath them..........

Or glimpsing these beautiful pink, red, purple, orange and yellow majestic tulips..........

Or lying on the bench while dreaming of lovely anemones just within your reach..........

Or climbing these lichen or moss covered stone steps to a secret place known only to you and a loved one..........

Yes, just sit and dream of the new awakening of the earth during these winter months. Ahhhhh, the anticipation. It enlightens my soul!

  2. Hi, i read your blogging ettiquette. I couldn't agree more.. it's a lot of similar experiences, only that you could put it in words better :)


  3. Oh girl, you are making me long for summer! What gorgeous pictures! We have been trying to find a new home for the past three years and during that time "emotionally" left our home already and so did not plant a garden or get into the yard work that much. This year we know for sure we are not moving and I am planning on planting a garden and also a small herb garden as well as lots of color spots. I can't wait!

    Thank you so much for your sweet supportive words over at my blog. You are a good friend!

    Hugs, Sharon

  8. Hi Pumpkin,

    Boy it's cold here today and the wind is blowing. The sun was shining but it didn't take the chill out of the air. My DH bought me some potting soil so I could start some seeds. But I haven't been in the mood to even get them going quite yet.

    I hope you and Mr. Sweetness have a great Valentine weekend. I know I'm hoping for some snuggle time myself.

    xo Cathy

  9. Oh, I just look outside and think... I really got to get to that flowerbed before everything wakes up. I would love to have a flower garden even remotely like those you posted. I suppose it gives me something to shoot for, no?


  10. You made all of these photos come alive with your words ... thank you and have a great day tomorrow!


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
