Garden Views

Hello all, and happy Sunday!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
I had to take some photos of my Cecile Bruner roses. I don't know if you remember a couple of years back, I bought a tiny little rose bush called a Cecile Bruner. I special ordered it, planted it, and the first year or so, it only got a few roses, and wasn't growing too fast. This year however, it's a different story, as you can see it's starting to drape it's way over the trellis. I'm very excited about this. These roses are a pretty pink, with a soft fragrance. They looks so sweet in a bud vase.
A couple of other shots of my garden that I thought looked pretty today too!
I also wanted to show you what I did with the rusty bucket I bought last week at the flea market. I hooked it onto the side of my wagon with a pot of double impatiens.
It's lovely weather here in Southern California today. Perfect for gardening!
Getting ready to go to our daughter's house for dinner, and to play with baby Jake of course.
Have a wonderful week!! Mother's Day is upon us. It will be my daughter's first official Mother's Day!!
Chat again soon.

I think I see a pretty blue flower we called "corn flower" when I was young...I know that isn't its right name, though. The rose looks great. Guess it was building up its roots all that time.
