Garden Scrapbook

A few years ago my daughter and her husband came over to my house when I wasn't home and took pictures of my garden. She surprised me on my birthday with this scrapbook.
I had to take pictures because the book is 12x12 and won't fit in my scanner. Sorry for the glare but they didn't turn out without the flash.
Laurie made the fence and the pots filled with flowers.
There was a double page about my fountain.
This is a climbing roses and jack-in-a-pulpit. She took some of the extra pictures from an old scrapbook I got at a sale. She made some excuse to get it from me.
The columbine was wild, I have planted some since. The moon flower is in a pot on the deck. The bees, dragon flies and butterflies are paper punches.
Rain lilies from my Grandmothers home in Florida. I don't know the real name but they are bulbs and I bring them into the basement, pot and all, every winter.
My hydrangea has pink, blue and a lavender mix flowers. The cleome are annual but sometimes reseed.
Solomon's seal is one of my favorites. The azalea is in the front of the house. Laurie made this boy and girl by paper piecing.
I'll show you the rest tomorrow.
