Featured as Guest Friend!

Today I am so excited and honored
to be the featured guest friend post
Thank you Luiz!!

(click photos to enlarge)

A Tiffany Rose...
One of my favorite Roses,
she is always full of blooms
and not demanding at all,
a good girl:-)

Here is Sexy Rexy,
He has the sweetest small flowers,
but never very happy in my garden...
a naughty boy!

While I was taking photos,
the Salvia was too pretty to ignore :-)

My April in Paris...
I first fell in love with the smell...
A wonderful strong fragrance!

Although I have no idea
why the color is brindle this year,
The bush is happy and flowers are plenty
but.. the color is crazy!

another pretty that caught my eye today
was the Jacobs Ladder.
I love that it make the garden smell like grape juice:-)

Since almost all my roses are pink or purple,
I plant blue, white and purple for their companions.

My Eden Roses...
layers upon layers of delicate petals,
Just like a tissue paper roses come to life!
they make my heart swoon!

They just reached the top of the arbor this spring,
but... the blooms have been suffering in the rain,
this is the first good grouping...
I am so excited to get a photo!

My garden friend Heather at Dusty Bay
is hosting a
Garden Blog Hop!
(you can see it in my side bar)
Go visit her beautiful blog and join in!

Today I am joining (and featured on)..

Come join in the fun
and see lovely flowers from around the world!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hello Bella and a happy 4th to you. Looking at your beautiful flowers today I was thinking it is like being in an English country garden. Add your lady in the pond and other pretties....why you've created quite a paradise which is why I love coming to visit.
Very nice that you were featured on Todays Flowers.

vincibene said...

Your pictures are so beautiful! Gorgeous!

Arija said...

Congratulations on your feature hosting. Your white poppies are stunning but what is the flower in between, a magnolia? Lovely sniff at your roses. Your April in Paris may be that colour from catching a cold, does it sniffle as well? An unexpected cold spell can produce some startling effects.

Sara Chapman said...

Bella, how beautiful are your roses. Congratulations on your Guest Friend photos today. I actually like the center one, with that waxy look. I don't know what that one is, either. I really love your work and your garden and I have joined as a follower. I've posted a photo of my back flower border on my blog today: http://www.artsquadgraphics.com/blog/2010/07/04/flower-border/

Autumn Belle said...
