First I am a mother of two sons, Chad 35 and Ryan 32. Through these beautiful sons, I have been blessed with two beautiful daughter-in-laws, Kelli and Erin. As a result of these beautiful wives comes three beautiful grands, Connor first and the only one for fives years. Then, Kelli and Chad blessed me with another beautiful grandson, Cooper, who is now three. Ryan and Erin blessed me with my first granddaughter, Presley, and now Presley has brother, Harper, who is 2. My blog is really all about family. The reason I chose Magnolia Memories as my blog title is I am from Mississippi! I love Magnolia's. Memories is something that I make everyday. I still have my mother who will be 89 on her birthday in April. My life is centered around my beautiful family. Life is GOOD!

'Just Joey'

This afternoon I took Connor and Cooper for
the afternoon to see my mom, which is staying
at my sisters.I took these pictures in one
of the new sub-divisions out by my sisters
on the way home.. Aren't they beautiful???

In the flower bed picture above, 'Nearly Wild' roses are planted to form a low growing hedge against a curved short wall.

This wonderful little floribunda offers the delicate beauty of single blooms on a compact rose bush that's easy to tuck into any garden.

The apricot-pink 'Just Joey' rose is featured in the flower bed picture above. They are hybrid tea roses that repeat bloom all season. The roses are edged with dwarf boxwood that were just planted.

I hope the pictures of flower beds have given you some great ideas for your own garden.

Thanks for sharing the pretty flowers. I was sooo ready for spring and all the flowers to pop up this year. The new background looks great and I love the lipstick cursor, a girl should never be without her lipstick, even if she's just blogging, LOL! Have a wonderful Monday!

Your grandchildren are so cute. I loved seeing the flowers - I could almost lean in and smell them!! Mmmm. Roses are one of my favourite flowers. So sorry to read your later post about Calypso.
