REFLECTIONS ON SOME OLDER VICTORIA MAGAZINES - MARCH ISSUES FEATURING ENGLAND





I especially love the older issues of Victoria and since it is March,  we may recall when many March issues were special visits to England.....


How can we not love these scenes of England:




I am sorry to say I don't have the ability to just "scan" these into my computer - I had used a camera here.....






Last year I trimmed back my clematis - I won't make that mistake again.














I read somewhere recently that a garden isn't complete without at least one cat in it! I don't have a cat but have 8 squirrels at my back door every morning.




I wish you a wonderful weekend dreaming about Spring!

My favorite issue of Victoria was the England issues, Bernideen. Got many good ideas from those issues. Thanks for the memories! xxoo Nancy

Oh those gardens - aren't they just TO DIE FOR gorgeous????

Thank you for the peeks.

My husband was in the back garden today. That's a GOOD SIGN.

Have a wonderful weekend, B.

Wow...those were inspiring. I have a few of the old magazines, but not the one on top -- the flowers are incredibly beautiful. I think I meet the kitty/cat requirements! (out door kitties)... Thanks for sharing...it makes me very excited for spring! ~Donna

I think most of our gardening roots began in England and am personally inspired by photos of gardens there.

I've had all of these magazines. I did get rid of a lot but I still have all of the English issues. The cat is one of my favorite photos.

The older Victoria magazines are wonderful and I like the visits to England ones too. We are enjoying the flowering trees and bulbs here already and the weather has warmed up.
