Garden Chores Can Surprise You

I spent the morning yesterday completing some long overdue chores in the garden like weeding and deadheading. 

As I was finishing up, I glanced over at my weed bucket trying to gauge if I could cram in a few more weeds.

What I saw had me whipping my head back around for another look.

As I was mindlessly deadhead,  a bucket full of pretty was forming . . .

How gorgeous is that!

Now some of you maybe be shaking your head.  Thinking to yourself that I've finally fallen off my rocker.  Maybe your right, but where a few may see crispy, slightly browning  flowers this petal loving nut sees pure beauty.

So instead of throwing them out, I placed the bucket next to the front yard fence so I can enjoy them a while longer. 

 Who knows, maybe another like-minded petal loving nut may walk by and enjoy the view!

Oh and look!

Phlox are about to bloom - - excitement's high folks!

Hope you all have a lovely day!



  1. You are right! All those little pink flower faces look pretty in the bucket. My weed bucket never looks that nice! :)

  2. Hi Robin,
    Ohhh, what prettiness! I love blooms, I can never get my fill of them.
    Hugs, Cindy

  3. Oh your right they are far to pretty still to simply throw away, enjoy natures gifts while she offers them.

  4. Love the bucket and the flowers are gorgeous! My phlox are in full bloom, so pretty! I always love seeing your beautiful flowers.


  5. They're beautiful! In fact, I'd probably leave them on the plant for a little longer. Mii


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
