Welcome to My Very First Blog Post

Hi everyone I am so excited about my very first blog, as I am new at this.  I hope you love all the things that I love, which is almost everything having to do with flowers and dogs and of course home.
Talk about roses, do I have roses, all kinds, but my favorite are roses with at least 30 petals.  I have about 150 roses in all shapes, and colors .
So for this first post I'm going to give you a little peek at my back yard.
That's Frankie the flamingo and he is watching over my garden and the dogs toys, thank goodness I don't have to feed him too.
Another peek at my garden......

This is one of my orchid plants, which has NEVER had this many flowers WOW.  One day it just exploded with all these flowers what a happy surprise it was for me!

I would like to introduce to Wilma.  Can you believe this is just one fern, must be the Miracle Grow.  Do any of you have any ferns this large?  I would love to see pictures of them.  I am here in sunny Southern  California and Wilma seems to love this area.  She stays outside all the time.  Do you bring yours indoors?
Here is one of my many iris plants and  they just grow and grow.  I tell you this land is like gold no wonder they panned for gold here.

I just love, love my fountain and so do my hummers.  They take their daily bath at the top.   The highlight of my morning is having a cup of coffee and watching my hummers.  They line up for their bath like little airplanes waiting to be refueled.  This fountain was a gift from my dearest friend Phyllis from Aroundrhouse.

This is a tiny portion of my front yard.  As the seasons develop my roses, iris and hydrangeas  go crazy.  I can't wait to show you all the colors in my yard.  You would think that the Rose Parade would call me for roses LOL  Maybe I should call them.
Well my friends, {I hope that I have made some friends} and I hope you have enjoyed some of my pictures and chit chat.  I am so anxious to hear what you all have to say, so please leave a comment so I know you are out there.  I would LOVE it if you would be one of my first followers.
Thank again, Mary
