A Bucket of Flowers in Waiting

Last night I went out and snipped some flowers--lots of pink and purple.

This is the time of year when my gardens start producing pastel flowers. It's always a nice change from the oranges/reds that have been my favorites for the past few years.

I stuck the flowers in a bucket of water overnight. I have some floral foam soaking up water right now and will make a bouquet shortly.

I am planning to use that black container sitting in front of the flowers.

Here are a few pink lilies. They are in the same spot where I removed the big white trumpet lilies last weekend. I like the big canna leaves down where the path turns right. They are finally big enough to see above the other greenery. Cannas do not grow well in my garden, so these are in a pot sunk into the ground.

I didn't even realize I had this purple campanula near this path. They just reseed where they please. I think it picked a good spot here.

I snapped a shot of the woodlland area all lit up with white daisies. I didn't realize I had put quite so many back here, but I like it. It's too dark for much to grow in this area, so the white color is very welcome.
At 8:00 a.m. I am going to the Farmer's Market. Today is their annual flea market day. I am in the mood to find some wonderful treasures. I may even stop at a few garage sales. I have only been to two garages sales this year. Wish me luck!


  1. Great garden photos Zoey..hope you find some treasures and then share here what you found. I like finding good deals at Flea Markets and such.

  2. Fun! Did I ever enjoy looking at pictures of your beautiful gardens. I would say for zone 4/5 you are doing very well. Like you I normally plant oranges and reds, but your pastels are equally as pretty.

    Thank you very much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. That's funny that you and your coworker were just talking about sinky washers. I've heard good things about this product. Hope to get it and try it very soon!
