Around our Spring Garden today

I thought you might like a little tour of my Spring garden today.
I am always amazed at the wonderful colours and varieties of flowers we can enjoy.
I wonder many times at Gods beautiful creations,and never ever take them for granted.

I couldn't resist picking a bunch or two for the table.

I was reading my herb book and read that in Victorian times, people used to pick little bunches of combined herbs and flowers and tuck them into their clothing.
They were called Tussie-Mussies or Nose- Gays to conceal the unpleasant smells.

Hello Jeanetteann,
I had trouble getting to your blog today. I think you must have made a mistake linking up to my tea party. Would you mind checking and fixing it so that others can stop by? Your flowers, ladies, and teacups are all very lovely! Thank you for sharing and have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Oh your sweet peas are pretty. I tried to grow some once but they were all gobbled by snails or earwigs or something. Seeing yours I might give them a go again.
