Blooming flowers

I love this time of year with Mother nature bestowing gorgeous gifts of color.
The weather here in California will be quite warm this week.
Time to bring out the patio furniture and enjoy the warm sun on our faces.

I took a stroll around our property recently and captured pictures of our flowers in bloom.
It is such a lovely feeling to walk around and take in the beauty.

Our lovely Clematis in full bloom.


We have lots of Lavender, even more than this...........

 Rock Rose

These Rock Rose flowers always remind me of a paper flower.

Dianthus in multiple colors.

Love this two tone rose.

Pretty yellow roses.

Passion Flower, such a unique flower.


Mini Petunias that came back from last year.

Our front yard and Big Hill.

 This Trumpet vine will soon be filled  with flowers.

Here's our garden.  Lettuce came up from last year, along with some carrots.  I have  different varieties of tomatoes growing too.

 Have a great week and I hope you all are having good weather...May  shall soon be here.

About Linda @ Life and Linda

Hello, welcome to LifeandLinda. I am from Northern California. I enjoy blogging, Designing Blogs, Decorating, cooking, entertaining, gardening and clogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. You have some gorgeous flowers and loving your landscape. Have a lovely week.

  2. It's all so gorgeous, Linda! Just wondering who cares for it all...I see a lot of dead heading and cutting back and how do you do spring cleanup where all that lavender is? We used to have about 6 single plants that were spread apart and it was always so hard to get the fall leaves out! Any tips or just hire a landscaper?

  3. Linda, this is absolutely a gorgeous post. Your flowers are spectacular. xo

  4. Beautiful!! Sadly our terrible winter got both our jasmine and lavender. Time to replant!!

  5. I love flowers, too! You have a beautiful garden!

  6. The only time we have lots of blooms is full on summer..
    I find you so fortunate for your climate!
    That lavender!!!

  7. Oh- How very beautiful all your blooms are, Linda. We are hoping for some of that here soon. So far it is cold and rainy and still winter brown. xo Diana

  8. I love it all!! My favorite would be the lavender!! I have tried and tried to grow even one small pot!! Alas, it always dies!! Your property is just so beautiful!

  9. How beautiful!!! Everything is so lush.......we don't even have leaves on the trees yet!!! xoxoxo

  10. Hi Linda! Such pretty flowers! Your season is about a month ahead of ours. I don't think I've ever seen blue verbena! It's beautiful! We have lots of colors of verbena around here, just not blue. Or maybe I just need to go to more garden centers! The roses are beautiful as well! Such a beautiful place to live! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

  11. Gosh, Linda, I needed these this morning! It's raining and 46 F here! lol. Your gardens are gorgeous and I love the variations of plants you have chosen. When can I come for lunch?
    Love you, Wonder Woman, xoox

  12. LINDA! I keep getting notification on your posts SO LATE! I would have been here sooner is I had known you had posted. This is the perfect post for me today since we had SNOW today! The colors just have to be making you so happy; I know I am happy as I blog and see that spring has indeed arrived in other states and other parts of the world! Thank you dear one, for coming to visit me. YES! I am featured on Robyn's beautiful blog today! Anita

  13. What a nice tour of your flowers. I like Verbena but it's only an annual here. That's really nice that those pink petunias came back- I love "volunteers" like that! The walkway up through the arbor with the trumpet vine looks like a scene from Tuscany!

  14. Thanks for taking us along on your stroll through your property, Linda. There's so much beauty to behold and enjoy. xo

  15. Hi Linda, Love your flowers and thank you for the walk through the garden. I do this each morning too and can see how the flowers grow just over night. It is amazing. You have many of the same flowers I do and I just planted the Trumpet Vine to replace the only rose arch I lost this year due to the bad winter.
    Thank you for sharing. Just beautiful!

  16. Your blooms are beautiful, Linda! Gorgeous gardens!

  17. Stunning flowers and beautifully photography! Have a beautiful day..............

  18. What an enjoyably serene stroll through your Gardens! I love all the flowers! And your view is incredible. We're just starting to see green buds on the Hydrangeas. It will be a while until we actually see flowers.

  19. Wow, what a beautiful yard Linda, all those gorgeous flowers.......I have to say I am surprised they look so well since we have heard so much about the Ca draught, but happy
    to see they are doing so well. that is wonderful.
    What a fun place to hang out.......great photos too by the way.
    Blessings and enjoy every pretty one of them.

  22. WOW! How nice to have lavender in your garden. Do you dry it? I'm sure it is wonderful! Enjoy your week. Hugs, Diane

  23. Gorgeous!!! I could almost feel the warmth of the sunshine, it must be very fragrant there as well. I can't wait for warm weather to get here. Thank you for stopping and commenting at ShabbyTeaParty. Warm Hugs,

  24. What lovely, lovely photos. So very glad you shared these glimpses of beauty with us. I don't know if I could pick a favourite...each is spectacular in its own way.

    Happy Day.....

  25. Pink and purple are two of my favorite colors, so I love that you have so many flowers of those colors in your yard.

    I can almost smell those roses through the computer.

  26. Get Ready as National Geographic (or whoever ;)) is heading your way... headline is "Paradise on Earth FOUND".
    So much Beauty!!! In your own backyard :D
    I'm on the prowl for one two-tones rose for my humble garden... the lavender is on hold for my front yard... I really want to enter home and smell it.
    Thank you for sharing your own slice of Paradise. Enjoy,

  27. Amazing view of the archway where the trumpet vine...Would be fantastic for you share your post over at Fishtail Cottage's Garden Party this upcoming Thursday. xoxo, tracie

  31. Oh Linda, you have such a lovely garden! I love all the different varieties - some we can grow here on the east coast and some that are new to me. And all that lavender - wow!

  32. Beautiful flowers..It looks wonderful (your yard).We are still waiting to warm up..I think next week we will be in the 60's...We had 2 or 3 days here and there in the 80's..Too soon for that..We've had much needed rain this week so everything is lush and green..
