As Time Passes By ~

 Time in the garden, on these lovely spring days seems to pass at a slower pace...



So many things are blooming that it is hard to keep up. The combined fragrance of roses and other flowers wafts through the air...




...adding another layer of pleasure to the soft spring day. Out here there are no ticking clocks, only this old sun dial to monitor the hours.



In this little area, roses, Santa Barbara Daises, and bright blue borage flowers compete for attention.


What a nice place to linger as time passes by.



I am going on a little vacation next week. I will be returning later in May, until then I wish you all well and thank you for visiting.

  1. Hello Adrienne:
    The blush pink Roses look absolutely wonderful cascading over the grey stone of the sun dial. It looks a quintessentially English scene through our eyes!!

    We do so hope that you have a lovely time away. Safe travelling and we look forward to your return!
