Summer Flowers

This is my flower pot tree. My husband put it together for me and we then went to a local greenhouse and they had all their plants on sale so we got a box full and plant the pots they are looking great as some of the plant were not looking so good when we got them, they were a bit root bound.

This is our vase tree our friend Bob made it for us my Mother had ordered a bottle tree from a magazine and when it came it broke so she as if Bob would like it for a pattern and this is what he came up with it is smaller than a bottle tree. We put a string of Christmas tree lights in the vases it looks really good at night.

Don't you just love the center color of this flower.

Hope you are enjoying your summer and all the beauty that is around us.

I have a beautiful bouquet of
on my dinning room
table this morning

I did not go out and pick them just to have a
bouquet on the table today
The wind and rain blow through our town last night an this is what my flowers looked like this morning.

So I went out with strips of cloth from an old tee shirt and tied them up.
Hopefully they will stand nice and tall again in a few more days. Lets hope for now more wind and rain for awhile. Now I am off to pick up and the sticks in the yard. Enjoy the next couple of pictures and have a great day.

Summer Flowers

Nothing Says Summer Like Sunflowers

I never can figure out what to grow in the flower bed at the front of our house. So this year as I was going through my seeds I quite a few packages of sunflower seeds so out to the flower bed I went. First we sprayed it with round up as the weeds had already started to take over, after the weeds died and we dug out some mulberry bushes I took the tiller to the beds, then sowed the seeds and this is what came up.
I just lover to what them open to see all the different colors and shapes. There are a couple that are in the very front that have a different shaped leaf that I can't wait to see what the flower will look like. So enjoy the colors will add a few more later as they continue to bloom.

Have a Great Day
