Wednesday’s Flowers – Gran’s Garden

October 13, 2010

Happy Wednesday!!  Believe it or not, I have managed to squeeze one more bouquet from my garden.  A cute Fall Aster is currently in bloom and I found an ‘Autumn Joy’ Sedum still hanging around and knew they would look great together.  I paired them up with…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Fall Charm

September 22, 2010

Welcome fall, I’m finally ready!  To celebrate, I walked through my garden looking for inspiration for today’s post, while hoping to find a little bit of colour.  I managed to find some but I think this all be the last “from the garden” post for this…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Summer White

August 4, 2010

I have decided that my garden is truly a spring garden, there are some very slim pickings out there right now.  Actually there has been very little colour action for months now.  Hence the spring garden comment.  I really need to do something about…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Summer Days

July 28, 2010

We are right in the middle of the lazy, hazy days of summer and I could not be happier.  We are getting a wonderful mix of hot, sunny days and rain.  We need the rain.  The flowers need the rain, today just happened to…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Teatime and Flowers

July 14, 2010

Where did last week go?  My life seems to be a whirl-wind lately and we just got back from a little vacation, crazy.  Today was a lot busier than I expected and I almost did not create flowers for this week’s enjoyment.  I have…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Fresh Lavender

June 23, 2010

Yay!!  The lavender is finally in bloom.  I think I love lavender almost as much as peonies; it is a flower that has so much to offer.  The smell is so refreshing and healing, the colour is really the prettiest shade of purple and…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Garden Green

June 16, 2010

I must say I have a very lush and green garden right now.  This makes me very happy but where is all the colour gone??  I need colour in my life.  Needless to say there were some pretty slim pickings out there today.  I…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Garden Mix Up

June 9, 2010

I cannot seem to keep out of the garden for Wednesday’s Flowers.  I get such a thrill picking flowers from my own garden.  So I had to do it again this week. I headed outdoors, early this morning, in the rain, to see what…

Wednesday’s Flowers – Peonies from my Garden

June 2, 2010

After much self debate I have come to the conclusion that peonies are truly my favourite flowers.  I do love all flowers but peonies; well I find them exceptionally spectacular. I love watching the plant grow from the ground in the spring, then seeing…

Wednesday’s Flower – Lily of the Valley

May 26, 2010

After spending an entire day out in the garden; weeding, cultivating, transplanting, getting some sun and some exercise, I came inside and looked around and missed all the flowers.  So after looking around the house, I decided the spot where I display my milk…
