A Look At My Flower Garden

P6050038 P6050033 I took these pictures last Friday, and it’s taken me this long to finally post them.  Thought you’d like to see my flower garden with the painted rocks and tiny bird bath.  This is the prettiest little bird bath I’ve ever seen, can you see the lily pads?  Thank you honey!  I can’t figure out how to make the pictures bigger yet, so sorry it’s so small.

Here’s another shot of my garden.  Oops, I have to still remove that brick in back.  Funny how I didn’t notice it until now.  Out on my deck I have this beautiful Hibiscus plant.  It looks like a little tree.  I am hoping I can bring it in the house for the winter.  I’ll have to do some research since this is the first one I’ve ever bought…I just couldn’t resist it.

This is my flower basket that’s suppose to attract hummingbirds.  (Hoping and praying)  I guess it’s called Fuchsia.  That’s what the tag says and when I googled the word, this is the same flower I came up with.  I also have a little Fuchsia in my side garden right in

front of the birdbath.

Thought I’d throw in a shot of Paul and I on our tandem.  Running beside us is Dusty, our almost 2 year old dog.  He loves going for runs with the bike!  We’ve had a tandem for 16 years now, and love going riding on it. 

Well, that’s it for now.  I am hoping to do some painting tonight, yikes – it’s already 4:22.  What’s for supper?  Who knows! 

Visit my etsy shop for my paintings, pendants and magnets.  Also, stop by my website, sign my guest book and say hi.  And don’t forget to smile : )

Beautiful garden Brenda, I'm with carol - The least I would expect is a broken leg if I tried it.

Thank you ladies. Riding a tandem is actually very easy. My mother-in-law went on it before and did good. I've never been the one in front, but in back you just sit and pedal. Easy : )

Both fuchsias and hibiscus plants are shrubs. I suppose they always look so small because they are killed or damaged in the winter. Let me know if you'd like me to take a photo of hibiscus shrubs here in Mexico City. I normally just photograph the flowers close up. Normally they'll be about 2 meters tall. Fuchsias normally only get to be about 4 feet tall and need plenty of care to keep nice.
