Today I am grateful for Time to stop and smell the roses (and all the other wonderful scents in my garden). Having the Time to spend in my garden is a wonderful luxury. I haven’t always had time to do the things that give me pleasure and today I am extremely grateful that at this time in my life I actually have found the time to spend in my garden almost whenever I please. Happy Days!


Photo: Freesias – I love, love freesias! They looked so beautiful in my garden when they were flowering in early spring. My only complaint would be that they should flower all year round!

Freesias – Freesias are very popular garden plants, grown for their often strongly scented flowers. Numerous cultivars have been bred. Modern tetraploid cultivars have flowers ranging from white to yellow, pink, red and blue-mauve. They are widely cultivated and readily increased from seed.
