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!
