Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
Mom and I picked a whole basketful of lavender yesterday! We need to decide how best to use it besides just taking deep whiffs and saying AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I was wheeling around in the garden to see what else was in bloom! Isn't this red Lupine the prettiest color?!
Mom sprinkles lots of seed packets every year and she never knows what colors will come up! It's a surprise - a nice surprise!
This Astilbe is red too! It grows in the shade portion of the garden!
Mom was ecstatic to discover this beautiful white Shirley Poppy in bloom! Mom loves ALL poppies! There are a lot of poppy buds so we're hoping that we get other colors besides white!
This is our only rose bush, other than the thorny Rugosa Rose! Mom has horrible luck with roses! Do you think maybe it's because she doesn't feed or spray them when she's supposed to?!Look what we found blooming outside! It's a fragrant Gardenia! Another AHHHHHHHHHH smell! We've had so much rain that there's no sense in leaving this beautiful bloom outside to get mushy and ruined! So we picked it and brought it inside to enjoy!
Our country's Independence day just happens to be this coming Saturday and mom and I made a red, white and blue flower arrangement to help celebrate it!
See you all next Wednesday!
