As most of you know by now, I love gardening and love flowers. The more flowers the better my life is when I'm home enjoying the comforts of being home with Bud!! While outdoors, weeding some rose beds this week, I stopped to take some photos of my treasures of nature...the roses and amaryllis that are in bloom by the front of the house near the windows. All for the Show N Tell this week....

The silver stallion grazing
in the pasture
was in all his glory.
The sun rays
glistened in the waning
of the afternoon.
I stepped over the aged,
gray, fencing;
stopping in the meadow
to observe his grandeur.
My scent reaching him, he snorted.
With tempest; fury of territorial rights,
He charged me. - I ran!

  9. Good plan! I don't care how tough you think you are, trying to tangle with 1200 pounds of enraged horse meat is dumb.

    Great visual here!

  10. Great colors of those beautiful flowers!

    Yes animals are territorial. Humans can get worse when it comes to that & fight battles for ages over territory!

  16. The flowers are outstandingly beautiful! We have so much shade in our yard (that we planted on purpose years ago!) that raising roses is very challenging. I love them and wish I had many more. I want to visit you someday in the spring - not summer!!

    The poem is excellent. I give you an A.

  18. I love flowers too and just rediscovered gardening (only a little bit !) I hadn't touched our garden since 25 years ! It was Mr. Gattino or a gardener. Now I don't know what happened to me I am getting a green thumb, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yea... I really NEED you to come work some magic in MY garden!

    And I LOVE your poem today! You should join in on the Poem A Day for April! It's challenging to write to a prompt!

  23. Beautiful!!! Do you leave the amaryllis in the ground all year round? I have some I forced indoors and wonder if I could plant them outside in the summer? Never tried it before.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog too.

  31. Visiting you via Kelli's Show and Tell blog train!

    Wow you have a good talent for growing things, I'm NOT so good, so I always appreciate and admire that talent in others.

    Thx for sharing today

  32. Such gorgeous roses, dear Anni. I can't wait until mine are in bloom, if you remember, last year I planted quite a few rose bushes in my faerie garden. They won't be blooming until at least June, though, if not later. Our growing season here is so late and short, June, July & August!! So, for now I'll just enjoy seeing your flowers:-) xoxo

  37. My pretty rose that my daughter and son-in-law gave me for Mother's Day about five years ago has just had its last flower for the season. And some the amaryllis have also had a last flowering until next spring. You're beginning and we're ending the flower season.

    Beautiful flowers, Anni, you must have a beautiful garden.

  38. Hi Anni
    How beautiful your flowers are, my my -I almost envy you for having such lovely climat that your roses already are in full bloom, here I have just been in the garden today cutting the roses down a bit, and they will not bloom until a month or so, but yours are just amazing!!!

  42. I bought my first amaryllis this past fall and now I have them "hibernating" until next fall...you see I know nothing about gardening, I will have to do some searching when I get back. I was afraid to just plant them in my garden...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Annie, I'm with you...just give me the flowers, and I'm a happy camper in my garden., or in the garden shop, or in a picture...I've often said I hope that I'm able to be assigned to the garden in heaven after I leave this earth...eternity would be grand being the garden keeper there. ;) Love your pics! ~CC Cathering from "Catherine de th`e Cups"

  48. Some of our plants are coming back, I was not sure after they got a salt water bath. I think my trumpet flowers are gone for good. There is no sign of spring life there.
    Love your photos..PJ:)
