Spring Garden Planning

It’s that time again gardening friends to plan your gardens for 2019 season.  We are creating many new garden beds, moving plants to new locations and the favorite part of it all is choosing beautiful new plants from the plethora of gorgeous ones available to us.  This year we will be adding to our four rose gardens new antique, English and modern roses with colorful new borders.  For our original Promise Garden on the rock hill where Lydia lives and oversees, we will plant many new flowering bulbs and low-growing flowering ground covers.  This are  just a few of the additions to the 2019 Promise Gardens so an inspiration storyboard was in order.  As all good gardeners say, “it is never too early to plan for our gardens” and “you can never have too many garden beds and flowers.”  We wish you inspiration and happy planning your gardens for 2019!  #Jacy JoyPals  #PromiseGardens

O Beautiful Spring Basket…

…from the Promise Gardens.  Spring has surely sprung!  As you see, the spring flowers have tempted me to create many lovely arrangements for the spring photoshoots.  I am always in awe of the rich colors and uniqueness of each flower and leaf.  Lilacs, hyacinth and bulbs create a spectrum of delight!  I wish you were here to take in the sight and aroma!  It’s breathtaking!

Oh My Hyacinth!

“Poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.”_CarlSandburg

The lovely colors of lavender, purples and orchid will be the prime color of the Promise Garden container gardens this year. It is also one of the selected colors for the new garden bicycle. There is nothing so beautiful as the varying hues of hyacinths and spring flowers as the garden palette. You can guess from the site header that these are my 2012 color choices!

Hyacinth & Me

….oh the perfume…oh the color…

I love hyacinth especially for the wonderful perfume they emit so every year I plant them, this year many of them in pots all over my porch.  They so captivated me that I brought a few indoors (oh so much better than oils) for room fragrance.  After I watered the pot, the droplets stood out so starkly, I grabbed my camera and took a few quick shots.  I love the color but then, I love all color, but purple and red had me at first look.  Enjoy and take time to smell the hyacinth and bring them indoors for beautiful room perfume.
