  1. Your spring brains are so very beautiful!!!! Envy your roses, they are all doing so well, look healthy and floriferous, just gorgeous. And the Leucospermums with their vivid colours, wonderful and exotic to us. So sorry we can´t grow them here.
    Wish you a Happy Easter in and around your magnificant rosegarden, a real piece of Eden.

  4. Beautiful! Spring is great! My garden is still a few weeks behind yours, but I just noticed the first bud on one of my new roses. Whee!

  5. Hi Gail, your roses are looking fantastic this year! Especially 'Young Lycidas' is catching my attention. Sooo... beautiful! One more roses that I am longing to see growing in my own garden. Maybe one day!
    My own roses are also very lovely this year. Somehow the March rain and the relatively low temperatures that we were having this month seem to have done the trick.
    Wishing you a very Happy Easter!
    Warm regards,
    Christina

    1. All I had to do was be born in California. Little skill needed here--the climate is so good.

  10. Spring does have the tendency to throw one into paroxysms of joy, doesn't it? I find myself on the verge of twirling around like some silly Disney princess whenever I go outside. I know I've already said it but your garden is GORGEOUS! While I remain envious of your yellow Leucospermum, I finally broken down and bought another for my own garden, 'Brandi' (which I think is actually 'Brandi De La Cruz') - hopefully, this attempt to grow it will be the charm.

    1. It sure is. 'Munstead Wood' is proving to be another with that rich delicious color. Must get a photo...
