Blooming in Musashi's Garden!

I've been working in the garden.
Geraniums are in pots on the balcony.
Tomatoes are planted.
Green beans are coming up and Musashi's Garden is blooming.

The west fence is covered by this trumpet vine ... common name Dragon Lady!


Mosaic Musahi's Garden


Musashi's Garden smells like orange blossoms with all the small citrus trees blooming.


Musashi's Garden Mosaic


Red and white camellias, dianthus and blooming citrus.
The Japanese maple is bursting out as is the crape myrtle.

What fun! 

Wishing you WELL and a JOY filled week.

Mary is the wonderful hostess for Mosaic Monday.

Seasonal Sunday can be found at The Tablescaper.

Just gorgeous! I have tried to grow Trumpet vine here but haven't had much success. I'm going to try again this year, but in a different spot. I'm in love with the colour.

Not quite yet time for any flowers in the garden in Toronto but soon, I know it will be soon. In the meantime I have enjoyed looking at these...fills me with possibility!

Beautiful mosaics, Snap. What a lovely place your garden must be. My mother's favorite scent (and one of mine) was that of Orange Blossom; I can't think of the fragrance without thinking of her.

Wishing you a joy-filled week, as well. {{{Snap}}}

I want to weep with joy to see those colours. Ah, you have restored my spirit. I saw a lot of green today - at our St. Paddy's day parade!

What a lovely garden, I can almost smell the orange blossoms. The sun is out here and the daffodils are blooming along with primroses. Everything else is still snoozing. You have been a busy gal with all that planting.

I am soooo jealous of your gorgeous flowers... We still have about 2 feet of snow on the ground, though that has started to melt. :) Maybe in a month or so, I can actually start doing stuff outside!

Having joined Mosaic Monday this week I am now enjoying blog hopping around the world admiring everyone else's beautiful photography and gaining inspiration. It cheers me when so much of the world around us is in turmoil for one reason or another.
