Flowers, flowers, everywhere!

Zion's first b'day 033 I absolutely love to garden and sometimes i think i get carried away with planting flowers. I have a vegetable garden too that i had posted about here.There are a couple garden beds with a mix of perennials and annuals in my yard. Additionally,  I have flowers that are in pots and flowers that are also hanging on my deck(pictured above). I love waking up in the mornings and opening the blinds to let in the sun and admire the flowers. Even if the sun isn’t out, the colours from the flowers always brighten my day. Gardening is one of my treasured hobbies during the summer and into early fall.  I find it to be very therapeutic too.

flowers I especially love to see flowers on a window sill or

hanging from the window.

How adorable! I think they’re doing a bit of sunbathing:-). So, do you do also enjoy dabbling in the dirt a bit?

  1. Hi Stacey! Hopped over from Flotsam Friends. The photo of your deck flowers is gorgeous, right up my alley! What are they?

  2. Gorgeous pictures! I love the last one with the bright house and cute pups.

    I appreciate gardens but don't have much of one because I don't know what I'm doing... though I do have mums that are beginning to bloom outside!

  3. Why yes I do. Took a pretty cute pic of the Baby Space toddler poking around in some flowers on the wknd...may have to post it. And also am rubbing my hands gleefully in anticipation that Spring + planting season is going to hit down under soon - can't wait!

  4. Well, look at how good you are! Is that first photo from your own home? (All great images).

    I leave all gardening to huz. I believe that I am a pretty nurturing soul but plants and I just don't seem to connect. They all run away from me! Haha!

    But I admire people with green thumbs like yourself.

  5. Yes, I really enjoy it!!! Lucky you who have a vegetable garden! Have a beautiful day! xoxo

  6. SOOO gorgeous - I love that sweet last photo! I admire anyone who can garden (I do NOT have a green thumb). This must be therapeutic too :)

  7. I love them too! Unfortunately I do not have a green thumb :( They always die, I can't understand it!

  8. I so wish I could do it more but I dont have a graden...But I have a lovely mini-garden on my balcony:)hahaha

    Those are such a cool photos:)

    Happy Tuesday,sweetie

  9. I am not so good with the flowers but I adore them. If my husband plants and tends to them, they grow but not me. Though, here in Phoenix, during the summer - everything struggles. I look forward to fall when we can have flowers again.

  10. Window boxes are so completely charming! Love them! We have a garden too! :)

  11. I've recently been growing basil and mint, as well as caring for a few succulent plants. It's such a delight to do! One day, I would love a window box like in the pictures you shared.

  12. Oh I so love them too! Wish I could have one but it's not possible in my apartment. That second photo is absolutely gorgeous!

  13. Beautiful! love that last photo, it's so colourful! I'm the worst gardener, though, unfortunately...

  14. ohhhh!!! I totally feel the same way about flowers! and I want a vegetable {or chilli} garden SO BAD!!!!

    such a pretty post ;)

  15. these pictures are absolutely lovely. they remind me of my mother's house. she has an amazing garden. and it's always been fun for the kids to go out and help out in the garden. i wish i had space at my current home to start one. but when i have my own home, i will be planting one asap!


  16. These pictures make me happy! :) Hope you will become a follower of my blog too?


  17. I love flowers in a windowsill! My favorite flowers are always wild. So free and colorful!

  18. i WISH i was a good gardener, but it seems i have about a 50% kill rate. right now we're doing our darndest to keep our new lawn alive. WA state grass no likee 95 degree heat waves...

    ps - you're too sweet! thanks for your nice comment. ;)

  19. I like to be out in the garden, too, Stacey! I especially like to pick a few fresh blooms and take them into the house to brighten the space up a little! Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my blog recently, I always look out for you! Will

  20. i love looking at gardens, i dont have much experience in them though! bummer!

    oh and yes, those were goats.. i hope.. they were gigantic.. like the size of enormous dog.. lol they were too funny, jumping on the fence, practically ate us whole.. lol

  21. I'm in awe at how beautiful this is!!!!! The last one has to be my favorite. It's perfection.


    Best wishes from one blogger to another,
