How long will you be away from paradise and in my neck of the woods? I have no problems driving north for a visit, but I am going on a trip the end of the week.

What beautiful roses and I love the statue of Our Lady in the other photo's.

We have to rearrange our garden because of our new puppy who has gone and destroyed my plants:( waaaaa:((. Oh, well I start again.

Peace, JOY & Love to you Esther:)

I'm here for a while Ellen. How far are you willing to drive? Where would be a good place to meet? Mall?

Thanks Rosemary and Cathy.

Thanks Marie. My parents' big Shar pei mix loves water. In the photo where my mom is watering, the big doggy jumped in and was jumping all over the plants trying to get to the water.

My mom says hello :-)

Oh Esther,
How I love this post! This shows so much of who you are: a beautiful person who knows what to plant, when to plant, when to appreciate the fruits and when to share them. :-)
Much love and lots of hugs,
Easter:-)
