Il Mio Giardino ~ My Garden

I try to always make a little time to spend in the garden ~ it calms me down and soothes my soul. I love the simplicity of white flowers in the garden ~ they sparkle in the sunlight and glow in the moonlight. Our gorgeously fragrant miniature gardenias are blooming for the fourth time this year! Our little baby roses are delicious smelling too, and so delicate. White geraniums, climbing clematis, “snow flake” bacopa, plumbago, and the fragile crepe myrtle tissue paper blooms…enjoy.

Oh Suzanne, your garden sounds and looks so beautiful! I bet it just smells heavenly too with gardenias that bloom again and again! :) I love your choice in white flowers -- you are totally right, they seem to glow at night and cast off their own ambiance. The "Garden" sign is too cute -- is it a vintage piece?

I cheated Grace...that charming little garden sign is not even mine! I just saw it and loved it and shot it, so I only have it as a photograph. And, yes the gardenias smell like "sugah!" Thanks for writing. xoxo

Lovely indeed. I only have a veranda of a mini peach tree, apple tree and olive tree, and I think the world of it! Although we haven't unpacked yet completely, I am gently pushing DH to arrange for our backyard to be made into a garden!
No wonder Eden was a garden, then!

It would look great in my garden too, Terri! It's not mine though...I just saw it, loved it, and shot it!
