Bursts of Color and Kisses

Another unusually cool day and the winds have calmed,
so my pups and I visited in the garden.



Howie and Justice
They really are good pals

Baby Gardenia

Fragile succulent bloom

Pink Silk Blooms


Love them now, but when they drop and turn to mushy clumps
I will curse the tree.


Hummingbird and Ant Heaven

Favorite Yellow Roses

Firecracker Manzanita


Trumpet Vine



Simple Little Oleander

Gorgeous photos Suzan! Your garden is just so beautiful. How I wish I could see it in person. I've never seen many of these blooms before, amazing! The pups are so darn cute.

Your blog is beautiful. I love the little pups, so cute. Thanks for visiting me. You wouldn't believe it but Gatherings has always been a dream for me. When we had our antique shop I wanted to name it that but it served two purposes and the name sounded too feminine to my husband. ButI love the word. Diane

I LOVE Gardenias, but have never had the magic touch with them that you seem to have. Beautiful photos, as always, Suzan!
