Wonderful colors in your garden. I love the smell of apple blossoms too - we had apple trees when I was a kid and the smell takes me back to those days.

Thanks for sharing!

love all the purple flowers. Also, I keep track of how many days my husband and I have been married. (613 today) When each and every day is a blessing it is easy to count them. Happy anniversary!

Gorgeous! Purple is my favorite color, and I'm always on the look out for purple bloomers for my garden. I just planted an ornamental pepper plant with purple peppers! Visiting from the Oregon Cottage party, stop by if you get a chance!
