More from my garden...

 Wow! Two day s on a row I've posted...I'm on a roll...actually I had a few minutes between finishing up  my gardening in the front yard and starting to sew...it was so pretty outside...I wanted to show you a few things from the front yard...it still looks pretty bare out there...but its coming along...I have two camellia bushes out there...both pink...but different...this one is blooming now... 
 This one has much bigger blooms...huge, in fact...and heavy...it is full of these!
 This is right before you step up on my front porch...I have had this big bucket for years and last year it was orange...I sprayed it turquoise in September...and planted succulents in it...I like it like this...for now...
 Some of the succulents are having babies...I like babies...
 This pot was my inspiration for all the turquoise...I got it on clearance last year...70% off...$3...its big and so pretty...
 So I sprayed a few pots the same color...I'm even thinking of painting my front door this color...can I have too much turquoise...I don't think so!
 I decided to add a little love to the front porch too...you can't have too much love either...but bear with me...there's more love but somehow...the pictures got out of order...I still can't figure out how that happens...
 One of the roses in the front has a few blooms...I love yellow roses...so happy!
 And I found this nice surprise out in front too...some dwarf phlox have come back and are blooming! I planted these last Summer...I planted red, white and blue together...just these have come back...some red in the back are up though...
 Here's some more love...I made this little mat a couple years ago....it brightens up the little table on the front porch...I got the heart one sale last year...it is stone and very heavy...so I decided to put it on the table instead of hang it by the door...we get bad winds here sometimes...I don't want it to blow off and break!
 I'm making doll carriers this week...getting ready for the flea market...

 These carriers are my best seller in my shop...they are so much fun to make...I can really bring out my little girl in me! I had sons...so anything girly is fun to make!!!
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

So pretty! My camelias are blooming too. Several other things are starting to sprout new growth. I wonder if that means spring is almost here!

Super duper jealous Linda! Those flowers and cactus pics are so beautiful.
Hubby and I were in California about 6 years ago. I enjoyed it and I always have thought I could live there except for two things...the cost of homes in most places shocked me and the amount people shocked me.
And what amazing weather you are having.

Oh my gosh...that ladybug fabric is just too cute.

Your flowers are so pretty. We are just getting going here in the "blooming" department. My orchids are in spike and one is already blooming. It's going to be a busy spring in a few weeks.
