Wheelie Wednesday - Purple

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
I'm in the garden again! Where else, right? It's spring and the garden is so active this time of year with so many pretty flowers blooming!
We decided seeing as there are so many purple ones blooming, to make this a purple post!

The lupines are blooming!
Lots of them! Aren't they just lovely! Mom wants yellow and we don't have that color - yet!

These are johnny-jump-ups! Don't they have the sweetest faces! They look like a mini-pansy!
This is the perennial cornflower! It reminds me of a big spider with many legs!
This is the giant allium! Mom bought the bulb years ago and it's one flower that we look forward to welcoming back every year! It's very tall!We realize this isn't purple but we just had to share it! Mom found this cute double-seater with the umbrella at a garden stand and it was only $19.99 and it weighs about 30 pounds! Is this a bargain or what?! The angel wasn't part of the package. She was living here already and now she has a nice cozy seat to keep watch over the garden!
See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn

Thanks for the barkday wishes! I know I'm going to have a pawsome day!

We just love all your purple flowers! Our mom planted Giant Allium, one time, but we think the squirrels ate the bulb! It never did come up and Mom couldn't find the bulb!

Aire-hugs,
Patches (and Poppy & Penny too)

Autumn, Thanks for sharing all of your awesome purple flowers. Our Mom has a brown thumb when it comes to growing flowers. Mom loves the double seater and it looks like you've found the perfect place for it.

Miss Autumn,
I have been doing some gardening myself, although I am not allowed in the flower beds. Such a wide variety of purples and shapes. Can you maybe show us a bigger picture of your whole garden?

Kisses,

Sue said...

What a lovely garden and I like your hat very much. You look all ready for a garden party.

Butchy and Snickers said...

Hey Autumn,
Those are such lovely flowers. Mama loves the lupines, she did have a big red patch, but after 5 years, they died out, boo hoo. Your bench for the angel is so cute. We're sure she will watch over things really well.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Autumn, you look so perfectly beautiful in your lovely garden. You are so feminine and refined. I want a wheelie sissie just like you. Hopefully someday.
