Time Flies.......

Where did the last week go?  Honestly, I feel like I blinked and it was gone.

Company for a couple of days, run errands, visit the nursery for hanging baskets, get a haircut, clean house, pay bills..........and not a minute to spare for the computer. 

I stepped outdoors last week and was just taken away by the fragrance of honeysuckle and wild hedges.  They are in full bloom and smell so sweet! My yard seems to be surrounded with these and I'm loving it.

My hostas are growing in leaps and bounds. I guess the rain and cool weather are just perfect for them. This one is taller and fuller than it has ever been. Isn't it beautiful?

I found great hanging baskets this year. I decided I wanted a change from the usual petunias. The combinations caught my eye. I love all of the colors.

I couldn't resist this lovely pink basket when the lady told me not to water it.....let it be relatively dry....I can handle that....ha

Well I am off to visit all of you and see what your week was like.
Hope you are having a great Monday!

I love the smell of Honeysuckle, too. And your hanging baskets are all beautiful, but that first combination one is my fave!

Nanny your garden is in full blown summer mode! I also love the smell of honeysuckle.
It is still cold and damp here and I haven't planted anything as yet. Hopefully I can get some flowers in this weekend.

OOoh, you picked out some beautiful hangning baskets! I'm getting mine this week. One of my favorite spring rituals! I think I need a honeysuckle bush!

Amanda said...

Isn't the smell of honeysuckle just divine?! We took a walk tonight, and I just soaked it all in. Love your hanging baskets! I need to get the one you have that needs to stay relatively dry. That's my kind of care right there!

Beautiful baskets, Nanny... I like ALL of them... I love the smell of honeysuckle also. AND my Hostas are doing well also this year... Guess the rain has helped all of our flowers and plants this year.

Beautiful
and yessss
I need a hanging flower basket that does NOT need to be watered every minute. It is so dry here...not sure it would work.

Gorgeous...your flowers and your photography of them!

BTW...in answer to your question, we will still live in paradise, just moving to a smaller place.

Hugs,
