Sandra (pronouced Sahn-dra because this beautiful woman is a native Brit)

Sandra is so admired by me. She is one of those people that recognize and create beautiful spaces. Her front garden (Ahia people call them yards), her front garden has now been redone by the sweat of her brow into the most interesting dry creek and further transformed into a true English Country Garden with masses of flowers.

She is beginning to intimidate me.:undecided:

;) ;)

Your flowers are beautiful! I was sitting on my patio last night enjoying the intoxicating aroma from our moonflowers. Wish I could bottle it. I will be harvesting the pods to bring down to TV with me.

ah, such sweet compliments from our dear Grace. You have placed me on too high a pedestal and its a long way to fall :) Thank you, dear friend for your kindness. My front yard dry creek bed is improving by the day. The cacti and grasses planted for movement and color will all look good after Mother Nature's touch.

For those who wanted to know the names of the white flowers, one is a night blooming cactus (I will have to learn the name myself), and the other is a fragrant Moon Vine. We hope to have a pergola where the vine is currently entwined around a trellis - along with a small fence to enclose the tiny but full flower bed in the rear of the house. Gardening is painting with flowers!

I love the beauty and colors of your flowers. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to "relearning" how to grow plants... in Florida, that is.
