A post about flowers

I know I have shared how much I love to play in the dirt. I realized that I have spent more time watering and weeding this summer than I have been posting. So I wanted to post a few pictures, so you could see what I have been up to.
This was a fun, little project, it started as a few sickly looking plants and an old ice cream bucket--that I cut holes in the sides of and filled with dirt.
Then after some sun, some water and a little love:

Yes--It sure filled out nicely.

OK this was going to be the entire post--but then I realized it kind of sounded like I have spent my summer watering this--well it was more than this one. I am slightly obsessed with flowers. I love all the color in the summer. It always amazes me, how you can put a couple of plants in a tube and they fill it to overflowing. I makes me kind of sad to see the blooms starting to fade away. So before I go I thought I share a few more pictures.

OK there you have it--some of the plants I've been watering this summer. I have been making lots of notes about what worked and what didn't and I am so excited, because this year I think I do have pictures of all of my flower pots so next year before I go shopping I will be able to make an even better list of what I need. Hope you guys have a great weekend.

OOOhh, I'm a little jealous. I have no interest or desire to work with flowers, but they sure spruce up a house, great job!

Beautiful flowers! I loved planting flowers every other year but this one...I think it has something to do with just moving in here...Let's hope so anyway! I did comment back to you on my blog (in case you wouldn't think to check, I know I maybe wouldn't!)

You have your mom's green thumb Julie! Can you water mine next year?

Great job! I love the Lehman's planter! Very cool!
