Loveliness at Promise Gardens


Loveliness is everywhere you just have to look around you in God’s creation we see beauty, love, hope and eternity. In our Promise Gardens it is filled with life, color, aroma, art and life from birth to death, creation at its best and worst. How blessed are we to be able to create, sow, seed, grow and tend the generous supply of creation our God’s has given us. It is WHY we love the creation in all of its splendor and have just a little of it in our own gardens. -JacyJoypals

Happy Spring!

Beautiful Spring!  We are happy to see the flowers begin to bloom and are looking forward to this year’s beauties as they grow another year in fullness and show. The sun is shining brightly here in the Valley which means our flowering trees are popping out all over. It’s a cheerful place and since we all love the colors of spring, a repeated post was in order. This is a combination of my favorite colors and the inspiration color palette for my beach house and formal areas of blue and white. Isn’t it lovely?

At Promise Gardens we are always thinking color, color scheme, color palette, storyboards and especially for each new garden season. What will it be this year? Pastels or bold colors? We shall see!

From Gardens to Table, Perfumed Lilacs

From Gardens to Table – Perfumed Land of Spring Lilacs

These beautiful trees are abundant in flowers and aroma and fill the house and gardens with luscious blooms and fragrant aroma.  I am in awe of them as they brighten my Morning Room and smile as I now have eight lilac trees from the mother trees and soon will have a grove of them in my “Perfumed Land of  Spring Lilacs.”  Stunning describes them best when brought indoors to photograph and enjoy.

I, WHO fade with the lilacs
And with the roses fade,
Am sharing this hour with them
Conferring in the shade.1

The Rose of Promise Gardens

It’s that time again as we prepare for our Rose & Garden Show 2018.  A few favorites from the past.

In our eyes, nothing is more beautiful than the blooms of roses and peonies…our favorites! So then, a few rose delights for the eyes and thoughts for the heart!

Promise Garden Roses

Promise Garden Roses

A White Rose

THE red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

John Boyle O’Reilly. 1844–1890

Spring Promises & Morning Sunshine

It is almost Spring Time again and even though it is only February, today we had a 77 degree surprise after the 30’s last week.  It is never to early to begin planning this years Spring beauty.  We will soon be sharing our lovely gardens again with you!  Until then, Get ready for your Happy Spring Gardening!

We are out and about on this lovely day watching the tulips and bulbs pop out everywhere.  Soon we will have the incredible beauty of them!

A little remembrance… How wonderful to see the sunshine this morning after drenching rains yesterday which watered the gardens so beautifully and the flowers just popped out with joy, the leaves drinking up each drop and of course, most importantly, the roots just as happy as can be.  How precious is the rain and sunshine to the gardens…very…and they show their appreciation by happiness in color, buds and giving joy to their caretakers.

This is another image from the Promise Gardens Spring & Summer photoshoots. The plants (common name) are from left to right: Tulips, Mock Orange, Rose of Sharon, Peony, Hollyhock.

Notes:

  •  Tulips: Everyone loves tulips, a must have in your spring garden/planters.
  •  Mock Orange:  An amazing bursting forth each spring of incredible white  flowers with glorious aroma.
  • Rose Sharon:  Breathtakingly beautiful and each year more abundant.
  • Peonies:  No garden is complete without an array of peonies.  The yellow is new to our gardens this year…sensational!
  • Hollyhock: The “red” hollyhock is a favorite and just breathtaking in the garden.  We have both single/double and prefer the historic “single” version.  These are heart stopping!
