  1. The flower pics are simply scrumptious. Thank you for whetting my appetite! I have hopes that warmer weather and spring have finally arrived and soon I too will have some of these beauties gracing my flower gardens.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Love the garden pictures! I just planted a bright pink dianthus so it is blooming but everything else has yet to pop.

    Have a marvelous weekend with your friends :-) Rosie

  3. Hi Rhondi:-),

  6. Hi Rhondi, I love your multi colored Iris...My bearded iris are just starting to bloom, I have purple and pink. I also love the pretty. I have some flower carpet roses (love them for their very easy care) and they are starting to bloom as well.

  7. Hi Rhondi, At the risk of pestering you with all my comments, I had to leave you one again this morning!!.....Your garden looks great! Such a variety!...And your peonies!!!They are the one flower we can't grow here in California! :(...Also yesterday, your guild's quilt is so gorgeous!... just so "happy"!... And about adding a touch of "leopard"...It would look great in your home!...I tell clients all the time, that a touch of "leopard" just makes traditional interiors "pop"! Have a wonderful weekend in the woods!...heidi :)

  8. Oh those old-fashioned roses are the best of all to me. What is there about them in their simiplicity of creation, that spells perfection?

  9. Such a beautiful garden! Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Rhondi: I want to hop on a plane and fly to North Carolina with my gardening gear. We could have a great time working in your glorious garden. Then stop for tea.

    Have a great weekend with your friends. Aren't those types of weekends the best?

  11. Hi Rhondi! What a big variety of blooms you have in your garden. I love flowers too but I am not such a diligent gardener.Come and visit my pictures of my tree peonies.
    Have a nice Mothersday weekend!

  12. How absolutely beautiful your flowers are! Please tell me what the little flower is that you have between the Bearded Iris and the Indigo - it's not labeled and I have hundreds in my yard in the spring. I assume it's a wildflower but could be anything! I sure don't know.... Have a richly blessed weekend.

  13. Hope your weekend trip is fun - and yes, do come to Raleigh for a visit soon!

    Loved seeing your blooms - just beautiful, what do you fertilize with?

  14. Hi Rhondi!
    Have a great time in the mountains! That's one of my favorite things to do. I like the Smokies!
    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! ENJOY, I'm sure you are!!
    Hugs, Sherry

  15. The garden is so beautiful!
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  16. Oh Rhondi, such beautiful delights you have shared with us from your lovely garden today! Thanks so much!

  17. Hi Rhonda, love the flowers!!!!
    Love, Ann

  18. Beautiful flowers!! Were you near my mountains??

  19. Hi Rhondi, Love your beautiful flowers...soooo pretty. Just in case you weren't sure, I think the purple one that doesn't have a name under it is Spiderwort. I love that flower and have it in my garden, too! :-)
