Home Sweet Garden {6/17}

Welcome to the Home Sweet Garden Party!
Sorry I am late starting this week.
We were busy last night car shopping and today I am
dealing with the insurance issues of them totaling my SUV.
I guess I should be happy to get a new car.
But it is stressful and I hate the idea of a car payment again.
Right now I think we are getting a new Ford Fusion.
It is still in the works....
Today for Home Sweet Garden I am sharing with you the Rose Garden...
 Spring flush is mostly finished, but a few blooms still are opening.
 The Shogun Jap. Irises bloom for 2-3 weeks in lovely purples.
Astilbes and daylilies flank the walls in colors. 
This garden looks out towards the lake and the backyard. 
 A David Austin Rose, Strawberry Hill is glowing for you today.
 The clematis is growing up my bed spring trellis and getting ready to bloom purple again.
Soon it will match the irises.
Okay, that's a peek in my garden...
I can't wait to see what is blooming in yours!
Here are the features from last weeks party!
Fishtail Cottage's Potting Bench
The Nest at Finch Rest's Pink Peony Tea Time
Bernideen's Tea Time Blog's Pansy Tea in the Garden
Little White Cottage in the Wood's Roses and Painted Mason Jars
Heart Rocks in my Pocket's Front Porch
Sable Hagan's Olive Grove's Roses in Bloom

Okay, let's share some wonderful ideas and be inspired!
Thanks so much for participating in Home Sweet Garden.
