Spring Garden Tour ~ Joy List Monday

Hello Friends,
One of my favorite times to take a tour of the garden is after a gentle rain.

 The Peony Patch

 Radish and Garlic

 Onion Chives

 Joy List Monday
♥ a weekly ritual ♥
a reminder to stop and pay attention to the little beauties and graces that 
make life magical and to set aside time for 
gratitude each day

 ♥ a perfect weather day

♥ fresh clean sheets on the bed

 ♥ bluebirds are nesting in our birdhouse

 ♥ muffins for breakfast

 ♥ rain drops on flowers




  1. Nothing like fresh sheets! The pictures are so beautiful and so inviting. Enjoy!

  2. I love seeing the water droplets on the blossoms! So pretty! I just read a little joke on one of the Mosaic Monday posts. The man is planting flowers and the woman asks him if he is arranging them by color. He said no...in alphabetical order! heehee! Thought you might like that little joke! Hugs!

  3. We've had a lot of rain and the gardens are thriving (except the stuff that's getting eaten!). Your garden looks so bountiful and beautiful!

  4. Your garden is so pretty! Made me want to see even more. It looks like you're going to have a bumper crop of peony blooms, you lucky girl. I love your joy list, Carla!

  5. Thanks for the garden tour. It's so nice seeing the fresh veggies growing and budded peonies. Love those radishes. I haven't planted any in years because the worms would eat them. I may try again next year if I don't get flooded again.
    Take care and keep us updated on your little garden that could.
    Hugs, Julia

  6. What an uplifting post. Fresh sheets, muffins and bluebirds...something for each of the senses. I love the color of this iris!

  7. I like your Joy list this week. Nothing better than muffins for breakfast. Your flowers are doing very well even with all the rain and not a lot of sunshine. The little flower shack is going to be overflowing. Happy New Week.

  8. Beautiful photos.
    I loved knowing your blog.

  9. Such prettiness! Bluebirds nesting! That's wonderful! xoxo Su

  10. The peony patch! I love it... ox

  11. So pretty! I love your peony patch!

  12. I commented last Monday, but today's is not up yet. I hope it is blessed. I love a gentle rain. It's the garden's best friend. xoxo Su

  13. Wow - I bet that peony bed is a mass of scent and colour soon. Very envious I can't grow them where I live in New Zealand. Got to love fresh sheets, fresh baking and the smell of rain on hot concrete.

  14. Lovely shots. I do like seeing a garden after rain.

  15. Just loved seeing your photographs.

    All the best Jan
