~ Our Get away From Work ~

Well here we are, still relaxing in our back garden with Summer about to begin . The roses and some of the other blooms will start to slow down once the summer heat starts. This is the reason why we have not been posting for a while. We just wanted to enjoy what mother nature has given us for a bit. This is the back side garden with a view of the wall, notice our little bird feeder hanging from the tree. We really enjoy watching all our little friends eating from their feeders, Hummbirds, Oriole's, Bluebirds, Yellow Finch's, Bluejay's ect...

We love to use vintage an antique garden ornaments through out the garden. Such as the birdbaths and cast iron garden urns, we have purchased through the years on our weekend trips. And our yearly trips to South Carolina too see Raymond's mother & father.

This is another section of the back garden where we planted some Texas privet to divide the back yard to create another garden room.

This bed is our newest bed garden, it has been planted with some roses, lavender, lambs ear and some acanthus. And we moved our front birdbath to this area. since we are currently remodeling the front garden and adding a court yard with a wonderful vintage fountain.

The Queen's Anne lace really took off and I had to thin some of it out because it took over some of the roses along the wall.

This urn was found at the Long Beach flea market two years ago and the price was too steal and we just couldn't pass it up.

This side of the wall garden hasn't really bloomed yet, but it is the last place where the sun shines during the later part of the day. Thanks for stopping by our garden and staying a while. It was great to be back blogging again.........Julian & Ray Today I will be linking up to I must appologize to some of you for not being able to leave a comment we are still having trouble leaving them on some of the different blogs. But I just want to say Thank You all for hosting this evening....

~ Just relaxing In The Garden ~

Hi there friends just wanted to say we are still around and apologize for being away for a while. I hope you all had a wonder full Mother's Day this past Sunday. But we are just taking a short break to smell all the roses and the other Spring flowers in the garden and enjoy the work we have done throughout the year. Before we start posting again but I promise we will be back. Hope to see you all soon...........Julian & Ray
