It's pouring rain here this early morning - I love a rainy day + the gardens can use a really good soak.


  1. Glorious white blossoms, the fragrance must be so lovely and a cute image of Miss Betty. ^^
    I wish it would rain here, the cold and wind has dried out the garden. There is nothing like a good soaking rain to bring everything back to life, refreshed and renewed.
    love to all
    xoxoxo ♡

  2. Such a beautiful garden! I spent a lot of time scrolling between the photos and the descriptions. I was surprised by the alyssum since there was nothing to indicate scale. And you're making me rethink geraniums: I will be looking for white ones to plant in my garden next year.

  3. Hoping you get some rain soon Dianne & itty Bitty sends her love xoxo

    thank you John ;-) that's quite a compliment coming from you as I know you are "a" gardner - & hey ! I know about the geraniums, in all these years I have always had red only (!?) this year I have the hottest, loveliest, brightest pink & white. Can't wait to bring them all in in the fall to see if I can't coax them into some winter blooming.


Hey ! We LOVE comments here at 29 Black Street.
