Inspiration from a Friend's Garden

Gardening is therapeutic, and walking through a thriving garden is inspiring. I have a friend who loves gardening and is quite successful at it. Her plants are older than mine and, therefore, much larger. I love to walk through her garden of many colors. Always, I return home from her garden inspired. Surely some day my plants and flowers will flourish like my friend's. I've included some photos from my last visit, so take a tour of some of my favorite flowers in my sweet friend's garden.
My pink and purple pretty flowers from my friend's garden.

I hope you've enjoyed the tour through my friend's beautiful garden today. I'm so glad you visited me. Please come back again 'cause I love to hear from my blogging friends!

I'm joining the following blog parties:

Time. It just takes time. And patience. The lessons we gardeners seem to get over and over and over again! :) Thanks for sharing your friends garden. It's nice to have a friend that shares you interest, and gives you inspiration.

Oh, the garden is so gorgeous! You're right - it is therapeutic! If your friend ever needs another garden to bring to life, mine is up for grabs!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Love gardening! After a long day with middle school children, the garden was my sanctuary and still is even after over 40 years!

Keep working at it and have a great weekend,

Happy Pink Saturday Angie Sweetie...
Oh I so enjoyed strolling through your gardens with you this evening. Simply beautiful.

I can't wait to see yours in a few weeks. I too lose myself when I garden, DH can walk right up behind me, I don't hear a thing, only the flowers singing as I work along, weeding, watering and whispering my deepest secrets to all the beauties listening.

Hope you have a beautiful Pink Saturday and a gorgeous weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

What a lovely garden, really Country Cottage. So sweet, and I bet it smells fabulous.

This week, my contribution is a desktop screensaver calendar. Happy Pink Saturday from the UK!

Your garden is coming along nicely. I've always liked Dusty Miller plants - the light colors are a nice contrast to the dark greens of the other plants.

Walking through a garden is very therapeutic, Angi...thank you for sharing that. I adore flowers, and think they're God's kisses to earth.

Have a glorious day,
Marianne

Hey! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might
be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
Appreciate it!

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to
know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
