Simple Pleasures

Life's simple pleasures through gardening. I would like to share with you some photos I took of different gardens I visited this spring/summer. Aren't these so relaxing? Hope you are also recovering from the long weekend holiday fun. I had over a week long of RRR (Rest, Recovery, Relaxation). Thank you to those who visited my blog and your emails. Nothing better to share than good news from my doctor. I am glad to be back!

Glad to hear you had good news from your Doctor, sweetie, and welcome back to blogland. This post is very painterly, too.

Congrat's on the good news. I miss these types of gardens. Summer is not the best time in Phoenix. I move my potted flowers to the one shaded area of my house and don't see them much. This was a nice stroll.

Hi Mary Ann!
I too am in RRR mode. Trying to recover from our French Flea Market Event.
I love these garden shots...so inspiring. I have spent all of yesterday and today in my garden and these photos are just the ticket to get me up and doing something about my weeds. (you see, They are under the impression that they are flowers)
Have a blessed afternoon,

Hugs,
Donna
