Mr. HB and I drove out to Brentwood Bay Nursery to redeem the gift certificate that I received from my family last March on my birthday.
I like to shop there because they have such great roses!
Lots of selection, many are of the David Austin variety.
Meet Madame Hardy
a pure white rose with a myrrh fragrance.
Mr. HB dug her into a bed in the back
out of harms way from the deer.
As long as the gate stays closed our plants should be safe from those hungry foragers.
Did I mention that our front yard is their new salad bar?
It's fortunate that we took Mr. HB's convertible so we could bring home our new Star Magnolia!
We had to take the backroads so we could drive slowly.
Planted in the front garden so it's sweet scent would greet us when we walk by...
isn't it pretty?
such a delicate dainty flower
many blooms are yet to emerge from their fuzzy cocoons
I've always admired Magnolia trees and find them startling in their beauty.
I wonder if the deer like magnolias...
I hope this one settles in nicely and grows roots.
Greeting those who walk by the Humble Bungalow Garden.
Hope that your week is off to a great start...
