Everything looking good.
I'll walk over one day soon to see your flowers in person. A nice warm sunny afternoon.

It looks as if your garden is coming along very well. We also have some roses in bloom now.

Linda said...

Everything looks great, lots of hope in those pictures. I have no space to garden so I just admire everyone else's.

It's a good feeling to have all of the pots planted, and then watch them grow! I'm almost there. But we're a long way away from the first rose.

Gilly said...

You have been busy! Everything looks flourishing!

I've never thought of utting Creeping Jenny in a pot, and I'm wondering if your Jenny is the same as ours? Bright green leaves and yellow flowers - spreads like wild fire? A real ground/patio/steps/path coverer!!

Lena said...

Beautiful! So cold up here, we have had frosts! What happened to our spring?

The alstroemeria look like lillies bloomed on a amaryllis stalk - wonder if thier related to either?
