I am the Flower Queen: The garden so farPosted: 2011/06/30
It’s my Friday today and I have a rocking weekend planned with my girls and my family. I’ve got to get the Lola Bed & Breakfast ( Chef Husband is at the ready) ready for the overnights guests and the Aquanet ready for the Poison, Motley Crue, New York Dolls concert. So in honor of Summertime concerts, and parties and pic-nics and night drives it’s a twofer today! My garden is doing better than years past, but the veggies are still going along slowly and late, they aren’t giving up! I am hoping for a late frost this year to get as many tomatoes , peppers and pumpkins as we can.
However, I have ALWAYS been able to grow flowers. As a kid in our garden I had an area that was mine each year. I planted gladiolas, I planted them very year it was the only thing I ever wanted, year after year after year. I still love them and even carried them in my wedding bouquet. Pro-tip: This is a BAD idea b/c they are heavy. We had tons of flowers in our yard and gardens growing up. Peonies are another favorite of mine and Roses and Irises, but I don’t have any of those blooming right now. We had Daisy’s and sunflowers, and marigolds, and poppies, and burning bushes and irises and on and on we had flowers everywhere. And so do I… Enjoy and
Have a Wonderful Holiday Weekend Lovies!
Happy 4th of July!
