  2. Connie, your flowers and your pictures are beautiful. Thanks for sharing them. I still can't get my reading list to work, so it's difficult to find the blogs I want to read...

    1. I am always delightfully amazed at the amount of growth in the garden between early spring and August and September. Then again I'm not so delightfully amazed at all the growth that needs to be cleaned out in October, LOL.

  4. Connie, I think you must work hard to have a garden producing such a variety of loveliness. i especially love the roses.

    1. It is a lot of work, but right now it seems to be a very good thing for me. It helps with the loneliness, gets me out in the fresh air, give me a little exercise and helps me eat much healthier.

    1. Thank you. As for the rolling pins I like them all but when I go to grab one I always grab that one with the red handles. It seems to be my favorite.

    1. Rolling pins are fun aren't they. I grow blackberries in my garden and freeze them. So whenever I get invited to a potluck it's easy to whip up a blackberry pie.

  14. Lovely flowers, no doubt you have a green thumb. It is such a task growing here in the tropical parts. The humidity mixed with the heat equals heatstroke.keep hydrated!

    1. I love having flowers in the house in the summer and these provide many lovely bouquets. Even one or two blossoms in a little bottle or vase can cheer up a room or windowsill :)

  20. What a beautiful, beautiful garden. As I scrolled through, I don't know why, but I was moved to tears and I no longer cry easily. Just so much beauty, so many thoughts brought to mind by the flowers. Thank you for sharing your garden and home!

    1. Well, my garden must have touched some place deep in your heart. Maybe it has something to do with your latest post and the fact that your public lands are still closed to the public.

  21. Not only a beautiful walk around your gardens and seeing all the beautiful flowers that are blooming but so pretty to see the lovely arrangements you have done for your vases inside! Yes it is hard to not look at all God has made and simply smile and be thankful for all that beauty! Have a happy August!

    1. His creations are amazing. Just look at the photo of the zinnia and how it has a crown of smaller golden flowers inside the main bloom. He put details into every living thing, some we can see with our eyes and some we need a magnify glass or x-rays.

    1. Gardening is a lot of work, but it keeps me moving . . . sometimes I just need a reason to get up and get moving, LOL Especially when the weather is hot.

  24. Very pretty. I planted Zinnia seeds I harvested from last yrs flowers and only about six came up. I love flowers I can slip and bring in to see also while in the house.

  26. Hi Connie! I meant to reply to this post sooner and here it is weeks later! Your flowers (and photography) is just gorgeous!!!! I love the zinneas especially as can't seem to grow them here and I love their beauty! How fun to walk around your own yard and use the camera to capture each flower's beauty, forever in time. I go back to many of my flower pictures for the past years and just look at them again and enjoy them so much! I hope you are well and not wilting in all the heat, although the last few days haven't been quite so bad. Take care.... blessings to you friend.... xoxo Marilyn
