I Went to a Garden Party...

Cielo at House in the Roses is throwing a party!
Saturday, June 21st... I'm starting early...

Please... Enter the front garden gate~

View My Petite Maison
Covered with lovely shade

from a huge pine tree and lots of roses~

Front side yard (where kitties hang out)...

One of the side yards
Love the huge rose bush, we sit on our porch

and people watch, lots of old bicycles going by!

The path to "Mr. Green Jeans"

One of the Angel Trumpets smells so sweet~

The "place" for panini on Sunday afternoon
4pm glow...
just below, so shady and cool~

My favorite is Panino di Prosciutto e Mozzarella
right here with diet Coke and lemon~ yum!

A cottage favorite, the Hollyhock (I love the singles)

A perfect pink rose!

My favorite, Princess Diana (above)

The little backyard -
Petanque style
and bistro chairs with gravel
Julia Child rose~

Little Buttercup in our garden gravel

Victorian plant stand
and pails from days long gone by...

The apricot tree, they're almost ripe
(and shade the window beautifully ;)

Wonderful flowering sage (the bees love this!)

Sage, thyme, marjoram and oregano~
And the White Rabbit bids you good-bye,
Thank you for your visit to
My Petite Maison!

If you haven't been there yet, don't forget
our beautiful hostess ~ click below...

Au revoir for now~
I'm off to say hello to some fellow garden folk...

Okay, what time is dinner? I'd love panini. And Dr. Pepper please. Your garden is magical!


Hi Tracie,
Your garden area(s) look so cool and refreshing. I wish I could transport out of this heat wave to be there in time for a cool drink and dinner. I am not good in the heat! Stay cool.

What a wonderful garden tour. I especially love your geraniums and pink roses and that little bunny is still peeking out. Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

Hi Tracie... Your gardens are simply breathtaking! I enjoyed all of your photos... not sure I could pick a favorite of your flowers! But, if I had to, it would be that "perfect PINK rose"... isn't nature amazing?!

Thank you for your comments on my Tagged post! Sounds like I got you at a busy time... heheheee! You know you do not have to do it, silly one! And, yes, my girlfriends and I did those daisy chains at recess, too! Ohhhh... another fun thing to do back in those days was making Cootie Catchers! LOL What fun it all was! Was so glad you loved those lil flying monkeys as much as I did... when I first saw them, I just could not stop laughing!

Try to stay cool in this heat. Instead of risking life and limb with a pail of water being tossed; perhaps just a few well placed ice packs would do the trick! Have a wonderful weekend... God Bless...

Hi Tracie :)

I loved the tour of your garden. Did I spy the travelocity gnome?? :)

I would love a panini ;)


Gail McCormack said...

Tracie your garden is enchanting! I think the kitties are very lucky, not to mention the people living in the House!! Very hard to imagine it being hot I'm sitting here tapping away with my Ski Jacket on!
All the more reason to have enjoyed Cielo's Garden Party.
