bringing color to my life

Living here in Eastern Washington, summers tend to turn to many beautiful shades of brown.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the color brown, especially the gold tones, but this girl loves all colors, the brighter the better when it comes to flowers.


Iris are so easy to grow and they take a back seat row in my garden space.





Hollyhocks are one of my favorite, I would love to grow more but I’m finding out they need a little help to keep them standing straight!



Look what came up this year, a Lilly!   I don’t even remember planting it.  If you look closely you can see a bee.



Flowers pots are my container of choice, simply because I don’t have to weed them.







I can’t have flowers without a little treat for the humming birds.



There is nothing better than sitting on our front porch, eating homemade ice cream and watching the flowers grow.  Did I say homemade ice cream, that just might have to be another blog!
