~ Spring Time Whites And Pastels~

Hi Friends, I hope you are all well and had a good weekend treasure hunting. As for me I am recovering from hernia surgery. It was just same day surgery so it is nice to be home and in the garden. I'm posting some pic's of the garden for ~White Wednesday~ And I am also going to sneak in some pastel colors for ~Out Door Wednesday~ Please forgive me for that.
These are pictures from the front garden this time. I have here some Santa Barbra daisy's and also this vintage garden chair. With a couple of antique Terra cotta pots.

This vine in the front downstairs window is a climbing one but I am not sure what it is called. And there is also some white Alisun and red roses and geraniums hanging from pots.

Thanks for stopping by today and please be sure to visit the other participants also. Have a great day in your garden also my friends....Julian

  16. Your home is surrounded by such beauty! You are a genious! I hope you are having a quick recovery, those surgeries can be tough. Just sit and enjoy your wonderful work of art. Love that trumpet vine!
    Bisous and get well soon!

  17. Gorgeous shots of your garden, as usual! I just love looking at your pretty garden...I think that vine is a trumpet vine...the most common version is orange red, but yours is a wonderful blue lavender. LUV it!

  18. OMG Julian,
    That climbing vine is to die for!! I am such a sucker for purple climbing plants. Your home and garden look lovely. If I were driving down your street there would be tire marks in front of your house from my jamming on the breaks. I think my neck would be snapped too :)
    I hope you are taking care of yourself and recovering nicely from your surgery. Get well soon!!
    Have a wonderful day!

  19. First of all -- GET WELL SOON! And your garden/patio area is stunning. Wow ... that climber is amazing. Gorgeous. Does it bloom much of the year or only for a short while?

    I guess it wouldn't do well in New Jersey, would it?

    Again, get well!

  20. Oh my sweetness your garden is beautiful and if it is all the same whites and pastels are all welcome in my world... I pray that you recover quickly from your surgery! Thank you for visiting and have a lovely day,
    Squishy hugs,

  21. Oh Julian,
    I hope you are doing well, and I wish you a speedy and restful recovery. You have a glorious garden to sit in and recover. Nothing better than that! Beautiful photos as always!
    Have a great day and get well soon.

  22. Hi Julian.

    What beautiful garden pictures you have to share!

    Wishing you a speedy recovery.


    P.S. Love the header pic of your Westies. I grew up with Westies...they are so spunky and loving!!!

  23. Oh my goodness...how beautiful is your garden! That vine is theee prettiest ever! Take Care and Feel Better~ ann

  24. Oh so pretty and vintage charming -- love the photos with the different vintage garden chairs,and scotty dogs. I have an old garden set like the chair under your front window surrounded by planters, I do not move it around much because they are so heavy not light like the new faux look a likes.
    Happy Outdoor Wednesday,
