Fabulous Flowers

My home is filling up with flowers, what a beautiful thing.

This is a lovely photo of the flowers my dear sweet hubby presented me with on Mother's Day.
I kept two roses to place on my bedside table now I have a beautiful surprise every morning.
Out on the sun porch I have this beauty enjoying the afternoon sun in her new gorgeous enamelware container.Along with these perfect pansies I placed into another enamelware container sitting atop a newly painted red bench. And finally, a handful of perfect purple pansies placed on the eating table.
All my thrift store found containers worked out beautifully as planters. I added a couple inches of gravel to the bottom of each container in case I over water.

  2. I love the enamelware for planters. Great Idea. And I always love milk glass. But I must admit, I have better luck with outdoor gardening.

  5. What wonderful pictures. I soooo enjoyed this "walk" through the flowers. Today I am planting flowers. I've been working in my backyard and Sunday I bought 8 containers of geraniums...they will be planted at the base of each Queen Palm we've planted.
    I hope you have a great day!!!
