  1. Wow! look at all that green!
    Just stopping by to say hello and thank you for the kind comment you left on my blog (Serendipity Home School).
    It's nice to see green plants, all is grey and white here ;)

  2. Wow, Sarah that is awesome. I absolutely love Spring.

  3. Love the hibiscus! Such gorgeous colour in your garden. And tell Joshua the vege patch looks awesome - yum!

  4. I am so jealous! We are in the dead of winter here in Nebraska, USA. My boys and are very much the out-doorsy kind and all this snow and cold is starting to get to us...instead of cabin-fever, we have cabin-craziness!! Your hibiscus are absolutely beautiful! Thank you for giving me a taste of life and spring in my dead and wintery hemisphere!

  5. Wow! This looks fantastic! Love the vegies particularly.

  6. I didn't see a weed at all. Great plants, yes, but great gardeners. Do you grow all your own herbs? Do you use that food for your business?

  7. wow! looks great!
    As for me I am an aspiring gardener with a brown thumb unfortunately!

  8. That all looks great, I'm afraid our garden hasn't fared terribly well during this summer and is all looking a bit frizzled! Obviously lots of TLC at your place :-)

  9. My husband was a landscape gardener for 17 years and now he has enjoyed creating his own garden around our home. He is so amazing is nurturing the plants and keeping everything looking marvelous! I cannot take much credit for the garden, except for preparing the soil for the veggie garden and keeping the water up!

    Mindy all the herbs were planted from seeds!

  10. The vibrant colours on the green are beautiful, Sarah. Hubby and Joshua have made a lovely environment. Enjoy!

  11. Hi Sarah,
    Your garden really is blooming, isn't it?

    I love the hibiscus - they won't grow here, as it's too frosty during winter.

    Have a great week,

  12. I love your quote of the week. absolutely love it. I am so looking forward to warmer weather here in Southern California to start some planting. I have a few hibiscus and I used to have the butterfly bush. I loved that plant. Those purple blooms... so gorgeous. I love your outlook and servant's heart. Have a fabulous weekend.

  13. Oh GREEN and LIVING PRETTY things! Thank you for sharing!


  14. Oh, to have some fresh basil and make pesto! Yum! We have a garden in the summer but for us here in the frozen tundra, summer is only3-4 months long. Thanks for stopping by and nice to "meet" you. A B&B. . .how very interesting to greet so many different people and a definite ministry I'm sure.

  15. Wow! What a beautiful, lush garden! Is that at your home? Lucky gal!

  16. Hello Sarah! So nice to meet you! :) It all looks so wonderful and beautiful!

  17. Amazing veggie patch! Is it hard to get them growing? And you're growing a huge variety of different veggies too which is great.

    Tell Joshua I said well done!

  18. Most of the veggies were planted from seed Jen, then all you have to do is keep the water up and pull out a few weeds!

    Are you thinking of planting some veggies Jen! Thanks for commenting!
