What stunning photos Linda! I've said it before, but your garden is amazing!! In the first photo I see my beloved cyperus grass. I've seen it up here as an annual and I'm getting some next year! Love it!
Happy holiday weekend to you & yours! j.

Thanks for taking me along in your garden. Aaaaah.

Not only gorgeous but fun seeing plants out of my zone.

Their colors? I've realized for dressing if colors work in my garden they'll work on my body.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

Because, surely, this is paradise. Hee. You'll know me-I'll be the one with the sign, Will Weed For Food...
