More Flowers...........

And we have more flowers................
The top photo is my very small butterfly garden. It is located at the east end of our house, but we have decided to move it to the backyard by our flower garden. We think we will enjoy it more there. We have a butterfly bush, lantana in the pot, and a purple verbena. Small not, but next Spring it will grow.
The next photo is my hosta's on the east end of the house. I love hosta's, mainly because they don't require much care. However, when they bloom they are beautiful.
Next, we have my lily garden, these very hardy plants blooom from Spring until Fall, all we have to do is water them.
This purple clematis is planted in the original flower bed in the back yard. When I purchased it they told me it was white, someone must be color blind! This is the first year for this beautiful plant, but it is growing rapidly and now I have two blooms on it.
And lastly, we have the other half of the flower bed. This is the one that DH and the animals were getting ready to put in. The fence is taller than we actually started with, but Fred kept jumping the shorter one and watching over the plants.
I hope you have enjoyed my flowers and much as we do. We are talking about planting wild flowers in the back yard next susan's, Queen Ann's lace, wild violets, and many more. I think DH is trying to get out of mowing!
I hope everyone is having a peaceful, cool day.

Our flower garden...........

The top photo is our existing flower garden, and we decided to enlarge it. The bottom photo is Wayne, Fred (left) and Maggie (right) getting ready to lay the timbers for the frame of the new flower bed.
Wayne and I both love flowers and gardening, watching the birds and hummers as they come to the feeders we have out. We've also had baby birds, again this year in several of our bird houses, and that is always a joy to watch as the parent birds feed the new ones.
I have always wanted a butterfly garden, so this year we decided, very late in the summer, to start a small one, so tomorrow or the next day I will share photo's of that with you.
Until next time................

I received an Award.........

Heidi from was kind enough to send me this award, even though I haven't posted anything to my Blog in months. Thank you so much, Heidi.

I am suppose to pass this on, but since I don't usually leave messages on other Blogs other than our stitching group, I really don't have anyone to pass it on to. So to each of you on the stitchinggroup, you are the best, and if I have visited someone's Blog (other than the stitching group) consider yourself Kreative.

I wish everyone a GREAT weekend and remember to stay "cool".
