"Know ye that the Lord he is God; it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful unto Him and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations" Psalm 100:3-5

  1. Hello Lea,
    Beautiful blooms. The Burr Rose and Plentiflora are lovely and Clematis are always a favorite. Have a happy day!

  2. Your roses are so pretty, as are the leaves on this variety of canna. Cannas are starting to catch on here in New York as they have smaller varieties now than what I remember in the eight months I lived (long ago) in Texas.

  3. Well, they don't call them Early Girl for no reason! How exciting! Growing up we had calycanthus, I just love the aroma (of wine!). My dog then (Brittany spaniel) would eat the leaves, which mad my father very upset, for the plant, she was fine.

  4. Those roses and clematis are just so gorgeous. I am envious.

  5. So much beauty in your garden, Lea.

  6. Such beautiful variety and colour!

  7. Your roses look lovely, Lea, and I envy you the Clematis. Happy GBBD!

  8. Oh Lea! How I love those roses, Clematis and everything else too! Happy Bloom Day!
