Zinnia poster

I really liked how this looked with the poster filter added to it but wish I'd shot it without the yellow moss flower.  If I have time later this week, I might give it another try.  I need to remember to buy lots more of these the pink color and they are so easy to grow and don't seem to mind my forgetfulness in watering them daily.
Life is getting strange at hours are changing to 9:30 in the morning so its really late getting off.  I'm not sure I'll make it till Dec. 23...ugh....

Early Christmas Gift from the Grands

The kids gave me an early Christmas gift.  Kristen and Greg made this flower holder and a dragon fly out of nuts and bolts and an old thread spool.  I'll get a shot of the fly later, not enough time this morning.  I hung this right beside the back door to remind me to add flowers to it as the seasons moves on.  I really like the idea behind this and think it would make easy, great gifts. 

The kids and I had a blast...but I'm worn completely out.  I washed clothes and linens all afternoon and cleaned house.  Now, its back to work.

Shades of White

Just something I've had in my mind for awhile.  I wanted a taller church but this is the only one I have.  I'm visualizing this with some Queen Anne's Lace but keep forgetting to stop and pick any on my way home from work.  Suppose to rain today....we need some!  But, I'm not holding my breath.  It was suppose to rain yesterday and all it did was sprinkle.

The grands will all be here tomorrow and stay till a week from Sunday.  Amanda is so excited, she emails me every day to let me know how many days her to pieces!  I'm going to love having them, even though it will wear me completely out and I didn't take 2 weeks vacation this year....only the week they are here.  I will be regretting this decision come Monday after they go home.

Mother Nature's part in my garden's

Just some snaps of Mother's Nature's handiwork.  The single petunia and vine are growing out of the cracks in my foundation.  The big bunch of petunia's are growing in my front flower bed. Last year, I had a pot of petunia's sitting on this spot and I'm guessing a piece or two broke off and rooted themselves.  Early this Spring, when I was weeding beds, I noticed the start of a petunia plant, so I left it to grow.  The vinca vine has been growing out of this crack for the past 3 years.
