A little loveliness....

........from my house to yours.

Fragrant gardenias from my bush that has been in full bloom. This is always a reminder of my children's elementary school days. I won this gardenia bush at a PTO meeting and it was so pitiful, but has grown into something beautiful. The blossoms are so fragrant they can be overpowering at times, but I have sure enjoyed them this year.

Coleus on the back porch.

Swedish ivy that I salvaged from last year.


Day lily that has survived the dog.
Nick loves to dig in my flower beds.

Red geranium in a mixed pot of beautiful flowers. Hope you are having a lovely day!

All so pretty. I've never heard of Swedish ivy-very pretty.

Gardenias are so lovely. They can be very fragrant, can't they.

Thanks for sharing your pretty plants.

Gardenias are so beautiful and fragrant! Love the coleus - they come in so many pretty colors these days.

I enjoyed seeing your pretty flowers!

Jackie, what pretty little spots you shared today! Isn't it fun to see things through a different eye - like the camera? I think it makes me realize how pretty some things are that I take for granted.

Beautiful flowers. We have red geraniums. I have not been a fan in the past, but I am starting to be one now. I've never grown gardenia's. I hear they are quite aromatic.

Gardenias are my favorite. But I cannot get one to survive outside here in Northern VA. I sure wish I could smell yours. Your other plants are pretty too.

I love gardenias so much that I had them in my wedding bouquet! The smell is wonderful! Pretty flowers!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I'll never forget visiting our friends in the south and having a bowl with water and a fresh gardenia in our room. It was so fragrant and beautiful! Your flower photos are too. I can never get enough pictures of flowers. Thank you for sharing yours.
