I Love Color

When the flowers bloom my heart is happy.

I smile at the warmth of sunshine in a pot.

I’m charmed by the sweetness of a delicate pink.

A vibrant red wakes up my senses.

And, of course, everything looks better with a little gold.

Have yourself a wonderful day!

  1. thank you for a walk in your garden! Each pot brings a mystery of loveliness. Is that an eggplant in the bottom pot? nawwww, it couldn't be. LOL None of these flowers can grow in our area, so I am enjoying them immensely on your blog! Such sweet tiny pink flowers on top, and WONDERFUL stripe yellow blooms - I love those. Thans for sharing, Leslie and be sure to thank Lulu, too! hugs, de

  8. I love seeing each individual pot, but I bet it looks awesome when you look out over it all together. I'm still working on mine. A work in progress. Love seeing the sweet Lulu enjoying a walk through the garden too.

  9. My hear is happy when the flowers bloom as well. My pots are doing great, but the annuals that I planted in my beds are slow growing. It is finally getting warmer here but the rain and cloudy days are keeping them from growing. Sigh :(

  11. Boy, am I enjoying all your beautiful flowers! It is stormy here AGAIN...days with sunshine have been few & far between this year. I don't know how anything will grow with so little sunshine & so much rain. You have an amazing touch with flowers!

    Oh my goodness! What a wonderful splash of colour! A feast for the eyes. It must be very difficult to ever leave home even for a short bit when you have a little piece of heaven right here on earth. Delightful.

  22. Oh I do love seeing photo's of your beautiful garden. Each pot has a beauty all it's own. I love the little underpinning of blue peeking out of what looks to be Pink Cosmos Daisy. There is nothing like an early morning walk through the garden or at sunset *sigh* We had company last weekend, and a chance to take a wonderful slow walk through our neighborhood gardens. Our husbands teased us about being so slow. Sorry guys, we ladies have to stop, admire, and talk about each plant - am I right? It was a wonderful weekend. Looks like yours was too. Hope Rich had a super Father's Day. He really deserved it after all the painting. I love Vance to pieces, but I would NOT turn him loose painting the house! One day I'll post the story of our house painting experience (the early years) *laughing* Thankfully we are quick learners and decided early that if we were going to stay married we'd better have someone else do the painting *laughing* Love that touch gold - you're so clever *tehehe* : )

    Hugs,
    Susie ~
