This and That~Flowers for Everyone~

Hello, Everyone.
Everyday I'm Amazed at the beautiful work of nature.
  I was outside with my camera, taking in the beauty and this is the result of nature.
Top photo are 'Coral Bells'

The top photo is 'Yesterday-Today-and-Tomorrow' each day the bloom changes color.
Purple ("yesterday"), Lavender ("today"), white ("tomorrow"). 
Bottom photo is a bloom from ' Dream Weaver' Rose

This is my Christmas Amaryllis~'Hippeastrum '
I planted it outside and was surprised when the blooms appeared last year.
This year it's doing well and I see another plant next to the first one.  Maybe I will have a group next year.
Blogging is a great way to journal the progress of my garden from one year to the next.

I moved some angels around the garden.  
The top photo is early spring 
the bottom photo is last week.

'Joseph Coat' rose climber is always a hit in my garden. 
As the yellow buds expand, the color intensifies to orange; then, with exposure to sunlight, the petals flush with red, until the entire flower is crimson.
A real favorite!

Bearded Iris

The gazing ball is just for fun. 
I found this small one at TM and decided it would nice in the birth bath.
Well, that is all for ' This and That'
An English Garden in Northern California. I'm so excited about landscaping my secret garden soon. 
The water and electric has been hooked up next to one of the posts, and we are ready to 
put the road base on the floor.  It's not easy to plant in the heat of summer, so I will be waiting awhile.
With summer activities with our family...September is only two months away.
Thank you for joining me @ My Cozy Corner.
I will be hopping over to party with a few gardening enthusiasts and others.

  1. Wow, I just love all these colors and blooms. Gorgeous flowers and photos. Have a wonderful day!

  2. Wow...I love the before and afters! You have really done a great job with your landscaping and have some of my favorite flowers! Since I live in the Midwest, we are just getting into gardening. I'd love to be able to see things blooming year round! Your garden is simply beautiful! :)

    Visiting from Fishtail Cottage.


  3. I like before and afters....your yard is very pretty.

  4. Hello Betty,
    Thank you for following me back! Your flowers are so pretty. Love the little gazing ball! Yes, we have lots in common, including, I used to live in Northern California for 17 years! I lived in Sacramento - miss it lots! I can hardly wait to look at all your travel photos and posts, especially the ones from England. I also love gardening. Had a large yard in CA but now I live in a townhouse and just have a small area (but a large patio!) So nice to meet you!

  5. Beautiful pictures they are all so lovely.


  6. Hi Betty! Oh, your garden and flowers are so beautiful! I know it would make my day to have blooms like yours.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. You have such bright and cherry colours in your garden. Your Joseph rose remind me of a dear friend who had one; perhaps one will find its way into my garden.

  8. Thanks so much for linking up over here at Fishtail Cottage's Garden Party! I can't get enough of the coral bells in my landscape ~ yours are so strikingly beautiful! I bet the hummingbirds love visiting your garden? oxox, tracie

  9. I agree nature provides some of the most beautiful plants and flowers ever. It was certainly kind to you. Very pretty.

  10. Your garden is full of wonderful blooms. I love the gazing ball! Very pretty and what a lot of work you've done.

  11. Beautiful garden and the rose that blooms from a yellow bud to bright crimson would be a winner for me, too. It must be fun to watch the process over and over all summer long.

  12. You have created a colourful garden. It's nice to see what blooms in California, an amaryllis in the garden would be delightful.

  13. So pretty! I especially like the gazing ball in the birdbath - I think I'll have to try that.

  14. To walk in the garden is now a pleasure. Every day something to discover. Joseph Coat roses are so beautiful. I have not seen that kind in Sweden. Delicious with golden orbs in the bird bath. I wish you a great week! Zinnia

  15. Really lovely images of your garden. I love your Joseph's Coat rose and the gazing ball in the bird bath adds such a note of whimsy.

  17. Hi Betty! I found you at the Pink Saturday Party. I forgot how pretty the Joseph's Coat rose is. One of my friends had one and it was like it changed colors overnight. Your yard is so neat and tidy. Thank-you for all the nice pictures. Denise englishpurpleribbon.blogspot.com/

  18. So pretty! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!

  19. A colorful garden indeed! I love angels in the garden! A perfect place for them.
    I too love to view before and afters of the change from season to season!
    Have a wonderful week in your garden!
