Love it Diane, I so wish that I could garden most of the year! I don't think I'd handle the heat in the summer so well though.

Your pictures are beautiful Diane!! Especially that last close up with the
two bees. Beautiful roses. That looks like I could reach out and feel how velvety those petals look!!!!
