Hello My Pretty Blossoms

Hello friends, it's time to dig in the garden.  I hope many of you are done with the snow and cold weather. Spring time is such a cherished time of year.  Mother nature awakening. Please join us for a Garden party. We welcome current or past garden posts.  We love all garden inspiration.

I love the orange lanterns with the Japanese Maple.

Loving the Lady Banks Roses.
My husband loves purple.  We have Lilacs, Rosemary, Lavender, Wisteria to appease his favorite color.
Plenty of Bacopa and Nandina.  I  just found some purple Bacopa at Home Depot, I shall be planting.
Thanks for visiting. 

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. Thanks so much for hosting, Linda! Your gardens with the purples are beautiful. I can just smell the lavender, wisteria, and lilacs! I love the Lady Banks. Mine is spent!

  2. i always love seeing your beautiful surroundings, Linda! You and your hubby do such wonderful work in your yard. I wish I could see it all in person. Thank you so much for hosting, and have a great weekend.

  3. I always enjoy seeing your gardens. Your husband has good taste- seeing all the purple is refreshing and it's a great accent color with other flowers! I can only grow bacopa as an annual here- it's a favorite accent for my annual planters. Looking forward to seeing more of your gardens throughout the spring and summer!

  4. Linda, I always love seeing your gardens. You are so fortunate to have all of that natural space around you. That's my favorite!! Bacopa is also a favorite of mine. It's such a happy little plant. :)

  5. Beautiful, Linda. Your gardens are always fun to peek at...especially at this very colorful time of year! Enjoy!

  6. Seriously lovely garden! I am so jealous if that is your garden.

  7. Breathtakingly beautiful! Thank you Linda for hosting......

  8. WOW. I love your garden. We are having a late Spring. My Lilacs are usually in bloom, but they are just getting leaves on them.

  9. LInda, the sheer size of your property must take much of your time for gardening, but be so rewarding. Beautiful views! I just bought white bocopa at Lowe's this morning. I want to add it to the pots on the porch because the alysum is already fading. Your lavender is incredible! I have but one small plant, and it's not at all robust. I must add some more. Thanks for hosting, sweet friend!

  10. The orange lanterns really caught my attention, but the various purple flowers grabbed my heart. Funny about the wisteria. Here in GA it climbs and covers pine and oak trees, and drapes itself over the utility wires. It's breathtaking, but the highway department and the power companies take a dim view.

  11. Linda, your garden is stunning! I too love purple in my garden. Wisteria is one of my favorites, but I haven't added one to this home yet. The orange lanterns are a beautiful pop of color! So happy you joined us in hosting the garden party.

  12. Swoon Linda! I share your hubby's love of purple in the garden and your photo of the Lady Banks and the wisteria take my breath away! Thanks for hosting, I'm looking forward to joining you girls in the garden each month. Happy Weekend ♥

  13. I planted bacopa this year. I love their delicate petals! :D Beautiful post, and I LOVE your lanterns in front of the pretty Japanese maple.

  14. Love all the lavender and purple flowers and vines in your gardens.... Just beautiful, Linda!!! Thank you for hosting this beautiful spring garden party! I am enjoying stopping by and visiting everyone's gardens. :)

    The perfect antidote to the winter blues,
    Happy planting!
    Barb :)

  15. Everything looks sooo beautiful Linda. I am in LOVE with those stunning orange lanterns. Have a wonderful week.

  16. Good Morning Dearest Linda!
    I love these gorgeous gardens. The rolling hills provide a perfect backdrop for the various shades of purple gardens. Such beautiful varieties of lavender flowers. I can only imagine the fragrance which wafts across the open landscape and hopefully settles right into your home. One of my favorite Spring blooms is the Lilac (we cannot grow it in Texas) Lavender fields...aw...
    Wonderful to co-host this garden party with you!

  17. Beautiful! My garden is not in a good shape.. :(
