Iris, Phlox and Columbine are the second blooming of flowers that fill the little walled garden. The first group are crocus, grape hyacinths, pinks and pansies.
The fragrance is delightful!
To the side and closer to the road is the Pet Cemetery. as you can see it needs some weeding!

Before long the Bradford Pears will be blooming too, which will brings the bees! Haven't put ferns in the hanging baskets yet!
Th Ivy is starting to cover the side again. I lost  the whole works one year as you can see the old vines.
My flocks of pink Flamingos (Yeah 50's!) are back again around the birdbath in front of the barn to the side of the cottage.
Thought I'd share  some handwork  I did as a surprise for a friend recently.
I made a collection of my small prints into book form.
In it are some copies of the little ACEO (Trade Cards) that I have or have had on E-Bay Auction. Hope you are enjoying spring/summer flowers where you are too!  Come visit me over at and www.facebook Marlynne Snare Folk Artist if you have time.
