ComeTake a Walk in My Yard





After a nice blogging break, and being outdoors in the beautiful Ga. weather, I am participating in Susan's Outdoor Wednesday. Please go visit her and the other outdoor blogs.












































































Here's a little stepping stone that I created using a broken blue and white plate to honor our Min. Schnauzer , Cindi (short for Cinderella).


Here's our little Cindi.
She passed away one year ago.

I agree with the other comments, your place is beautiful! The roses especially!Are all these in bloom now, or are some of the pictures of previous year's bloom? If so, Georgia blooms way, way ahead of us in the Pacific Northwest!

Oh WOW your hydrangeas are divine! Mine are not blooming yet. And your purple Verbena are so pretty. I posted a photo of mine earlier in the week. Sorry about loosing your fur baby Cindi! Just leaves a hole in your heart doesn't it! We lost our lab Duke May 6 of last year. Well, they're waiting for us & watching over us now. Glad you're back we missed you.

Cynthia said...

Hi Rose,
I so enjoyed this tour! I can't believe your beautiful flowers and gardens. The trellis and all those glorious hydrangeas, my favorite flower. What is your secret? I am so in love with this garden. Cindy (not the dog )

Beth at Aunties said...

I am so glad I dropped by. Your roses are spectacular as are all your flowers. I love the green lushness of where you live. We live in the desert and it takes a lot of hard work and water to get beauty like you have.

Loved my walk!
Beth~♥

You have a very pretty yard. I love your tribute to Cindi. My first Miniature Schnauzer's name was Sir Cinderfella. Cinder or Cindi's or Poodie he was a very nice dog. I do love those schnauzers. Your little Cindi was such a cutie! ~ Robyn

Nicole ~ said...

I am sorry, I got so excited about seeing all of your pretty plants and flowers that I did not tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your baby girl. She was so pretty, and looked very sweet. It is so hard to lose such a wonderful friend. Nicole

Bo said...

Hi Rose...Your garden is Beautiful with a capital "B"...I like the idea you had to remember your little Cindy...she was a cutie. My little poodle Sassy died a year ago in April...I'll think of them as waiting side by side for us over the Rainbow Bridge. ;-) Bo

Thanks for taking us through a walk in your garden. It is just beautiful. Don't you just love this time of the year when everything get growing and blooming. My peonies are in full bloom now and really for the first time since being planted a few years ago. I'm so proud of them:)

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Hi Rose, I don't know what happened to me! lol I thought I had completely lost my passion for blogging but once I started, I couldn't stop. I don't know how much longer this streak will run but I'm having fun while it does! I'm getting close to my 200th post so I have to keep it up for a while at least. My one year anniversary for blogging is coming up something this month, I need to look up the date so it doesn't pass me by.

Oops, I forgot, HRT stands for Hormone Replacement Therapy!

~CC Catherine said...

Rose, These pics of your outdoors are stunning! And, so sorry to hear you lost your Cindy a year ago...I know what it's like to lose a pet doggie after 13 long years for us. We have another little sheltie now, Abbie, on my sidebar. She is our source of joy, and lives up to her name, source of joy! ;) Your Rose Arbor is so striking, someday I'd love to have one. I've missed you! ;) ~CC Catherine (Stop over to enter my Mother's Day giveaway! It will be open for entry till Mother's Day night at midnite, PDT ~Ciao

I just kept waiting to see gnomes, or fairies, or Alice in Wonderland at the very least! Your photos and yard are breathtaking!

Gollum said...

Rose, I enjoyed taking a walk in your magical yard. What a sweet reminder for your sweet Cindi.

The Muse said...

Muse's are rarely speechless...
But you certainly have taken my breath away!

Your gardens are beautiful, Rose! Cindi looked like such a sweetheart...lovely piece you made in her memory. I sent you an email earlier today
