New Flowers from My Garden

These flowers in the little majolica pitcher are newly picked from my garden around my house in Naples. I chose this Hibiscus to plant because it's such a vibrant tangerine color...then the Gardenia and Night Blooming Jasmine for a heady fragrance. Oh, it's so yummy to walk by on the brick/pavers to my door! So, I want to share it with you.

The picture behind is of my son's grandmother and his aunt. His daughter, my little Hadley looks just like his aunt!! We were all shocked at the resemblance when she was here to visit last week!

The other pic is of my favorite little Lambie and a gift my son and DIL gave me while visiting. It's a candle, actually! It fits my decorating style, as you can see. Love it! Lambie sits with me on my computer and keeps me company...I touch him for good vibes.

Thanks to everyone who's been emailing and commenting on my Neighborhood idea! I'm excited to get it going. I really appreciate your kind responses.

Also, thanks for your comments on the Mermaid. The colors are so vibrant and my camera work just doesn't do them justice! It's a shame..:(
Love and hugs, Deb

I love the flowers! This far north, all I have is daffodils and primroses so far :-)

Do you hire out? Your house looks so much like I've wanted mine to look, but I have two left thumbs when it comes to decorating. Beautiful pictures (and pictures of pictures!).
