My 2012 Gardens

Happy Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Countdown to Grandkids Arriving = 46 days to go!
Today I have a NON-Kards by Kadie post to share with you ........ but one that has EVERYTHING to do with why I LOVE LOVE LOVE living in Arizona!  Check out this GORGEOUS VIEW!
This is what I see every time I look out my kitchen window!  There is something dreamy about waking up in the morning and standing at my kitchen sink and taking in this amazing view - while I'm making myself an espresso.  (I often times wonder ....... does it get any better than this?)
And if I stroll outside and head towards our backyard from the Ramada side of our house ....... This is the view I am greeted to!
I have to admit that neither Jack or I have a CLUE what the names of over half of the beautiful things we plant in our yard ......... but what we do know is ..... we love color and we pack as much color as we possibly can in our gardens.
 We have beautiful Yellow flowers........
 Purple Flowers .........
 White flowers .......
 Red ........
 Yellow .......
 More Purple .........
 More Yellow ........
 More White ........
 Some Pink (of course) and Orange .......
 More Yellow ........
 Some Melon .......
 And RED .......
 And our gardens always include Cosmos........
 In all their glorious beauty!
 I think the single best thing about our yard is that we have pops of color all over the yard!
 We even manage to tuck flowers into spots JUST BECAUSE!
But without a doubt ........ I wouldn't have these beautiful gardens without all the hard work that Jack continues to put into watering and making sure that our gardens continue to grow during the entire HOT HOT SUMMER MONTHS of Arizona.  He truly has a PASSION for gardening and LOVES to water and tend to all our gardens ........ EVERY DAY!  (thanks honey!)

I thank you for indulging me with this fun little walk through my gardens - I promise to be back tomorrow to share with you some Kards to Kadie creations that I've received.  THANKS for stopping by today and Keep Living Your Dream!
