Any day is a good day 

when sun shines through lace curtains...

...but before the lilacs 

and the Lady Banks bloomed 

and even though spring had arrived, 

the sun still hadn't gotten the message

 and faux greenery 

was the only game in town.

Now, the roses are in full bloom,

 filling the garden 

and all the rooms in the Cottage

 with their lovely scents and colors...

The sun is now shining,

 with attitude,

 and the garden is grateful...

Just keeping you in the sunshine.  

Hope all is well.

    1. Thank you so much. I appreciate your kind words and thoughts. I haven't been posting as much lately but will continue on when I can. I hope you will come back..xxoJudy

    1. Thanks so much, Kris. I know you must miss your gorgeous gardens from the past, but you still have all the beauty inside..Hope you are having some good weather..xxoJudy

  3. Judy, I have always loved your pictures. Your home with the lace curtains makes me smile. I love lace curtains. Beautiful flowers. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. Hi Judy! Your photos are always beautiful, but these are especially stunning! They really capture your cozy home. Hooray for things starting to bloom - it's been a chilly spring! Jane

  5. It does look like spring in your beautiful home. I have one (badly tended) rose bush and one kind of decent one. I should pay more attention -- when I see ones like yours I feel like I should grab the garden gloves and clippers!

  6. Oh Judy... so glad the sun is finally making an appearance there! We had many many weeks of gray days this winter and early spring too. I bet when you walk in your garden, the rose scents are amazing. I only have 3 roses, but every time I walk by, when they're in bloom, I love the scents. I'm amazed yours are blooming. My bushes have just begun to put out their new growth. Will be a long time before I have any flowers. I do also smile when I see your home with the lace curtains. I lived in a 100 yr old Victorian house in Waitsburg, WA in the early 90's, and I fell in love with it when I walked in and all the tall windows had billowing lace curtains! I sure did love that house. Wish I still lived there as the little town was my favorite all-time place I ever lived. I'm not blogging as much either... just do so when I feel like it! Take care....

  7. The roses are so beautiful, Judy, all in their pretty vases in your lovely home filled with sunshine. I think sunshine makes such a difference in how we feel. It really lifts the spirits! Sending you hugs. x K

  8. Hi Judy! I hope all is well with you. I have missed your posts! Jane

  9. Hi Judy! Hope all is well. Miss seeing your updates/pictures

  10. Nestled in the heart of Gold Country, Judy's charming cottage stands as a testament to comfort, warmth, and a unique blend of classic and contemporary aesthetics. As Judy curates the perfect haven, there's a parallel need for seamless door to door transport services to complement the essence of her picturesque retreat.


Your comments are so special to me...Judy
