A Few Remaining Blooms...


~"Flower's really do intoxicate me."
~Vita Sackville-West


~Dianthus, Begonia's, Color splashed leave's
of Coleus, and beautiful Nigella(Love~in~a~mist)
seed pods....


~"In my garden there is a large place for
sentiment. My garden of flowers
is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers
and the dreams are as beautiful."
~Abram L. Urban



~ A building my Husband & son built out of
firewood sized log's & a tin roof a couple of
years ago, & an old pair of work boot's
planted with hens & chick's....
A day spent cleaning up the garden, washing
window's, and enjoying each and every
bloom I see..
Wishing everyone a good Monday!

You are making me pine for a garden! I live in a townhouse and do not have the room to grow much besides begonias (I also have very little sunlight - darn trees :)

Great pictures, and the collage arrangements are effective, too!

Catherine, I'm like you, I really love the flowers...they bring so much joy and happines to me. They really inspire me too. It is nice to see what lovelies you still have blooming. I have some geraniums, impatiens, flower carpet roses and coreopsis that are blooming. Things are getting rather lean in my garden tho, just that time of year, I hate to admit.

LOVE the work boots with the hens-n-chicks! I wonder if my husband would notice if some of his old ones disappeared...

It's always a pleasure to see your pictures and to read your thoughts.
One thing that stands out is the log house, that is just beautifully done, a work of art done out of love... what more could you want.

You still have lots of things blooming in your gardens - very pretty. I like the building your hubby and son built - cool! And a tin roof - I would love to be near it when it's raining!!
