Monday Morning Flowers!


Happy Monday to you all!

I normally go out and about to get your Monday Morning Flowers.



However, I was a little short on time this weekend, so I went out to my backyard and captured these for you.



I've recently discovered that I like potting plants and flowers and taking care of them.



Did you know that watering flowers actually helps them to grow? 

Amazing!

Hope you all have happy weeks ahead.

So sad that your back yard is so ugly and all you have to rely on for photos.

Lovely! And that reminds me, I have three flats of flowers to get planted this morning!

They need water? No wonder ours always die.

Hi Betty - love the Sweet Williams - they are gorgeous .. I tried to grow the middle pic ones in South Africa and failed! The pink hydrangea flower looks amazing .. love seeing them.

Overwatering and over loving = kills them! Cheers Hilary

And I feel like I'm from that flower-less planet in April and May when all you lucky warm-climate bloggers are posting your gorgeous blooms and we still have brown grass and no leaves!! GREAT quote!

Your flowers are lovely.

Backyard (or front yard) blooms are excellent and you don't have to leave home to enjoy the beauty... or share it!

I love that quote. Did you know one of the most common causes of houseplant loss is overwatering? Best wishes on the greening of your thumb!
