I have been busy working on some subway art signs for my website. This is my Family Rules sign.
A vintage white background, different shades of charcoal lettering and a bit of shadowing along the edges.
I have also done one in a black background and ivory white lettering.
I also plan on making these customized with the names of the family.
Now that I have shared that I want to take you on another garden walk. I love this time of year, every morning brings a new bloom to enjoy.
Though this Iris is more subtle in color, the contrast is quite stunning and this flower has the sweet scent of the old fashioned flags.
This is the first year my Bourbon clematis has bloomed, it is such a rich deep red (much deeper than it shows on the screen). This one won’t climb higher than 4 feet but I don’t mind, it is planted in an area where I sit to enjoy my morning coffee so it is always at eye level.
A friend passed this Iris on to me, I do not know it’s name but I enjoy it the striking colors.
My Happy Chappy ground cover rose. This little guy blooms in various shades of orange, yellow and pink all summer long and fills in a rather drab area bringing it to life.
My surprise Corn cockle. It is a surprise as I do not remember planting the seeds in this spot. Before it bloomed I thought it was a Bachelor button, I know I moved a Bachelor Button here last Fall. I love it even if it is not the Bachelor Button.
Oh how I wish the colors were true on this one. It is really a rich royal purple, but just imagine this covering the trellis on my back stairs. This is Warsaw Nike clematis, one of the toughest I have owned and it blooms forever!
I can’t do it justice but I gave it a whirl.
Golden Celebration English rose
Some old fashioned sweet peas to perfume the walk. These had reseeded themselves from last year, you gotta love that.
Don’t you just love Spring?
