End of Summer Blooms

I love summer and gardening.  My yard is at its peak in May-July each year; however, there are still some good blooms to enjoy into August and September.  One of my favorite flowers, Cosmos, are in full bloom right now!  In fact, they were going SO crazy along the entry to my front door, I had to put this little fence up to corral them in.  My husband thought I should cut them back...  now that's just crazy-talk!!


This area is fairly newly planted.  A few months ago I decided to pull all of the boxwoods that were lining this planter.  I was able to give them to a friend and they are now thriving in her backyard.

We already had this amazing Weeping Cherry and Tree Peony.  They both bloom in early Spring.
Is there anything prettier than a clematis climbing up a birdhouse and blooming?
Here it is a few weeks after I planted the area.  Many of the flowers that were blooming back in May are done now, but the Cosmos are happy to keep going!

And because I love birdhouses, I had to throw this picture in.   The fern is a volunteer.  I love how it's growing around the birdhouse. 
What are your favorite flowers?

More Games for the Game Room

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Fleattitude, a Vintage Market about 50 miles from my house.  I wasn't sure how long it'd take me to get there, so I was pretty early, which made me happy.  (I love being one of the first in line for sales like this!)   The night before, my husband said he wanted to go, until he found out that we'd be leaving by the crack of dawn.  He tried to get me to wait till later to go--not a chance.  Instead, he slept in and I shopped till I dropped. 
I found a lot of fun stuff!
The first thing I found was this game board.  I had been considering one online for awhile, but wasn't sure.  I saw this and saw the great price, so I scooped it up!  The only thing wrong with it was a missing net in one corner.
Since I don't do needlework, I decided I would find a replacement.  I thought maybe a fishing net, but those were too thin and expensive. 
My husband found this set.  And it was on clearance.  By the time it was ours, we'd paid $2.33.  Definitely worth the chance!
I needed the new net to look a lot like this old one.  
 I cut it out of the racquet and sprayed it with Camouflage paint.  I let it dry about an hour, then stuffed it in the corners and hung it on the wall.



Yes, if you look closely, you can see which corner is the new one, but really, most people who come into our Game Room are there for a party, so I doubt that they'll ever notice!

Thanks for your visit!

Grain Sack Pillow

A friend was moving and trying to get rid of things. I was the lucky person who happened to be in town that day!
She gave me this neat old grain sack.
I took an Ikea pillow insert and pinned the fabric around it.
 It then sat on my couch with the pins for several weeks...
Today I sewed it up and now it's good to go. I love the colors and graphics!
Thanks for your visit!

Doing the Wave with Petunias

I'm so glad that someone figured out how to come up with Wave Petunias, because I love them!! 

I had some trouble finding them this year.  The planting date that everyone goes by here is Mother's Day.  We were going to be out of town right around there, so I waited until Memorial Day to buy them. Boy was I shocked that they were really hard to find!  Luckily they had just put some out that morning at my favorite nursery.  The colors were limited to purples and whites.  I would've preferred to have more pink flowers, but beggars can't be choosers, right?! 
I have them in pots on my driveway and on my back patio.  They are blooming like crazy and are just so much fun to look at!
Here's Bailey doing his wave!  "Hey, I just came in 20 seconds ago, but now I must go outside again!"  :)
What are your favorite flowers for pots?
 Thank you for your visit!
