Monday's Stroll through the Garden
I had forgotten to take some pics yesterday of my Brugsmania (Angel Trumpet) plant/shrub opening up. I love these plants. I had 2 last year-one was yellow (which is the one in the picture and the other one was peach which didn't make it through the drought last year. This plant/shrub is 3 years old and going strong! The trumpets have a lemony-spicy fragrance, which is even more intensified at night. Tonight I just stood there soaking in the fragrance of them! I also took a picture of my Carolina Jasmine gone wild on my Pottery Barn lantern. I was going to trim it for Jenny's wedding but she told me to leave it, it gives the patio a "Secret Garden" affect! She's right! The little white blossoms that look ready to pop any minute is my Lemon Tree that I bought a few weeks ago at Lowe's. It is doing great! I put it in a container so I can move it with me! Hopefully we'll have lemons from it. I also snapped a pic of the sky-it looked so pretty! Hope you enjoy all the pics!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
