Got Summer?

Well, I spent my weekend planting flowers, and it finally looks like summer around here!

Gotta say, though, that bets are being taken on how long these beautiful plants will stay alive.

In the meantime, I am loving my purple and green color combination!

And do you even believe those hydrangeas? They're real! They look so lovely that everyone assumes they are fakies. Can't say I blame them. Most people know of my gardening woes.

Ahhhh...gorgeous!

Check back with me in a few weeks to see if these babies are still alive and kickin'!

Just make sure to water them - my cocoa lined baskets dry out really quick - like everyday.

Gorgeous flowers - but I am seriously coveting that rooster beside your front door!

Hydrangeas are so friendly, they just have that soft, vintage feel. Especially in the lilac, blue, and soft pink colors!

So so beautiful - good luck with the hydrangeas. They can be tricky in CO.

Sarah,
The flowers in the hanging baskets are lobelia. Not sure how they will do, because this is my first summer trying them. Good luck!

I am jealous of your flowers! I have such a black thumb. I am really going to start paying attention and learn about plants and flowers.

I love your porch. I want to sit there. Your flowers are beautiful. I'm planting pots this weekend!
